Harrison Ford and Sean Connery on Last Crusade
While Sean Connery was accepting the Life Achievement Award from the American Film Institute at Hollywood's Kodak Theater Thursday, Lucas was trying to figure out how to push the actor into Indiana Jones 4.
Lucas Wants Connery for Indy 4
According to AccessHollywood, Lucas, who was among those honoring Connery, will do whatever he can to convince the Oscar-winning actor to return to the franchise.
Despite reports that Connery is retired, Lucas told Maria, "I would love him to be in the next 'Indiana Jones'ůmaybe I can push him into it."
When asked if he knew whether or not Connery wanted to appear in the film, Lucas said, "I think he does."
Lucas jokingly added, "We are writing him in whether he wants to do it or not."
I dug the chemistry between Ford and Connery in The Last Crusade, but it will be interesting to see how things play out now that Ford is as old as Connery was in the last film.
