I'm getting a bit tired of these constant casting "rumors" and announcements (does anyone really care that much about them?) - but this is one definitely worth mentioning. It's been rumored (as originally started by Ain't It Cool News) that Shia LaBeouf, of the upcoming Disturbia and Transformers, is apparently going to be cast as Indiana Jones' son in the upcoming Indiana Jones IV that was recently set for opening on May 22nd, 2008.
Ain't It Cool bases this purely off of speculation that Steven Spielberg currently "loves the kid" and that both Disturbia and Transformers are big Paramount / Dreamworks projects (the company that Spielberg owns). So take this completely as a rumor, as it's not confirmed at all yet and I don't think even that much is known about the script and story.
