Indiana Jones and the Pretty Elf Queen

Here’s some sweet news to end your work week (unless you’re me and have to work tomorrow):

The Hollywood Reporter reports this morning that one of my favorite actresses, Cate Blanchett, is joining the cast of next year’s Indiana Jones movie. No word on what the title will be, and no word on what character Cate might be playing.

I previously wrote¬†about Variety’s report that Shia LaBeouf was in negotiations to play Indy’s son in the film. No official confirmation of this has been given yet.

Indiana Jones bullwhips into a theater near you on May 22, 2008. (And I’m already humming the theme music.)
