Lucas: 'Ford's Not Too Old'
Acclaimed director GEORGE LUCAS has slammed reports HARRISON FORD is too old to play his famous character INDIANA JONES in the forthcoming fourth installment.
The STAR WARS movie-maker is co-writing the script with RUSH HOUR creator JEFF NATHANSON, titled INDIANA JONES AND THE OPAL OF THE MERMAN PRINCE.
But Lucas has denied 62-year-old Ford was originally rejected from his legendary role because of the ravages of time.
Lucas says, "I'm working on a script now... Hopefully we're going have something done by the autumn, which Steve and Harrison will like, and then we'll move on from there."
The action film - to be directed by OSCAR-winner STEVEN SPIELBERG - is due to be released late next year (06) and will see Ford play the adventurous archeologist for the first time since INDIANA JONES AND THE LAST CRUSADE in 1989.12/06/2005 14:06
