Ray Winstone is the latest to join Indy 4

Ray Winstone is the latest actor to join the fourth installment of the Indiana Jones series.

Tatiana Siegel in The Hollywood Reporter writes:

Ray Winstone is joining the expedition for the fourth installment of the Indiana Jones adventures.

The actor, who stars as the title character in Robert Zemeckis’ upcoming “Beowulf,” has signed on for a major role in the untitled film being referred to as “Indy 4.”

Although the film’s plot is being closely guarded, sources said Winstone will play star Harrison Ford’s sidekick.

Cate Blanchett already has boarded the project — to be produced by Lucasfilm and directed by Steven Spielberg — in an undisclosed starring role (HR 3/16).

David Koepp penned the screenplay for “Indy 4,” which is scheduled to begin filming in June in Los Angeles and at top-secret locations around the world.

I still have mixed feelings about this project but at least Lucas and Spielberg are casting some heavyweight talent, even in the supporting roles.
