Hollywood tough guy Ray Winstone has signed up to play Harrison Ford's sidekick in the upcoming INDIANA JONES sequel. The British star will join Ford, who is reprising his role as the intrepid adventurer, with Steven Spielberg again in the director's chair. As previously reported, Oscar-winning actress Cate Blanchett is also on board. The storyline for the new film, which is penned by Spider-Man writer David Koepp, is being kept under wraps. It is not known if Sean Connery will be returning as Ford's movie father in the third sequel. The fourth Indiana Jones installment resurrects the lucrative franchise after nearly 20 years. The film is set to begin filming in June (07) in Los Angeles, and will be released in May 2008.
