Previously rumored, now confirmed, LaBeouf has officially been announced as part of the cast of the upcoming new installment in the Indiana Jones franchise.
Production on Indiana Jones 4 (title still unannounced) is scheduled to begin this June in Los Angeles as well as other locales.
“We are excited about bringing Shia into our Indy family,” said Spielberg. “His talent has impressed not only his audiences throughout his young career but the directors, producers and fellow actors who have worked with him in his television career and now his film career.”
“I was hoping the rumors were true, so I couldn’t be more thrilled,” said Shia. “To be cast in an ‘Indiana Jones’ film is like grabbing the brass ring and holding on for the ride. I’ll do my best to meet the high standards that Steven, George, and Harrison have set and I can’t wait to take that giant step in front of the Indy cameras.”
