Raiders of the Lost Ark spoilers...again no.
There's another batch of alleged spoilers online for the Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull film today, although when you read them you see that these are all plot aspects that have already leaked out bit by bit to date.
One of the extras on the film has just blown his chances of ever working with these big names again by revealing a bit too much that might just compromise his non-disclosure agreement.
Tyler Nelson was talking to his local newspaper, the Edmond Sun, about how he has been cast as a dancing Russian Soldier on the film, and he let out the following bloopers.
Both Indy and the Soviet Army are hunting down a crystal skull in the jungles of South America – check, knew that, although I guess you could say that the jungle part is new. I think we heard that when the title was announced.
The Russians take Indy hostage and blackmail him by threatening to kill Marion Ravenwood – well we heard that on the Interflab a little while ago, although I didn't report it as it seemed a little minor all in all.
Cate Blanchett is playing an evil Russian – yep, we heard that when Blanchett was cast.
Oh well, looks like he's just destroyed his career. According to the story over at the New York Post through Hollywood Elsewhere and CHUD, Steven Spielberg is furious and will drop his scene from the film.
Spielberg's spokesman said:
“Who knows whether that particular person will ever work in this town again?”
Meanwhile Tyler Nelson's representative at his talent agency said:
“He's in trouble. He's got to know that he can't do that.”
Oh dear, he most certainly is in trouble. Still, nothing that surprising for us is there? I know it hasn't spoiled anything of the excitement I have for Indiana Jones and the Kingdom.
