"Indiana Jones" Returns...Again!

Action-adventure fans rejoice! Producer George Lucas has announced that "Indiana Jones 4" (sequel #3, if you’re counting) will begin filming in 2007!

After finishing the script with Steven Spielberg, Lucas told the Associated Press that he expects the latest edition of the much-loved franchise to be "fantastic…the best one yet."

Harrison Ford will once again play the lead, revisiting a character that his performance in 1981’s "Raiders of the Lost Ark" made an icon. The 64-year-old Ford said at the inaugural Rome Film Festival in October that he was excited about the project and hoped that he was "fit to continue" to play Indiana Jones despite his age. It’s tough to say what effect age will have on the story, but Lucas — who has kept the plot under wraps — has divulged that the latest action flick will be a "character piece."

This highly anticipated sequel has been in development for over a decade, but perhaps the success of other character-driven action films like "Casino Royale" and "Batman Begins" prompted the completion of the screenplay and a push for production.

So far, web speculation has pegged key series stars to return, including Karen Allen ("Raiders"’ Marian Ravenwood), Kate Capshaw ("Temple"’s Willie Scott), John Rhys-Davies (perennial Indy pal Sallah), and Sean Connery (Dr. Jones Sr. from "The Last Crusade").

"Indy 4" is expected to hit theaters in May 2008.
