Some news on 'Indiana Jones 4'

Here's some latest news on 'Indiana Jones 4' which I got from the net. Not sure how much of these are true though. Anyway, the film has been scheduled for a summer 2008 release.
  • George Lucas and Steven Spielberg have gone over the new Jeff Nathanson script and given it their approval. Harrison Ford is also pleased with the draft.
  • The Movie is set 10-12 years after the events of the old movies, it'll be in the 50's.
  • Naturally Harrison Ford will return as Indie, and he will also have a younger sidekick.
  • The movie will be shot in early 2007 likely in Australia and U.S. Steven Spielberg has been spotted location hunting in Queensland, Australia and Japan.
  • George Lucas has confirmed he has written a role in the movie for Sean Connery in the hope he will sign on.
  • Rumor has it that Steven Spielberg paid Michelle Yeoh a visit on the set of 'Memoirs of a Geisha' to ask her to star in Indy 4!
  • Model Laura Dutta is the first person to be officially signed on, the model has never acted before but has landed a small role involving some dialogue.
  • Kate Capshaws character Willie Scott looks set to return, with the possibility of a cameo role from one of Indie's other love interests.
  • Steven Spielberg also has his eye on Scarlett Johansson for a role in the movie.
  • John Rhys-Davies says he hopes his character 'Sallah' will return but says he has had no contact with George Lucas or Steven Spielberg.
