image for Cate Blanchett won't tell Harrison Ford he's too old for Indiana Jones.
Luckily, the spring loaded traps are as old as Harrison Ford.

In the tradition of Rocky and Rambo, another ex-action star refuses to recognize that he's old.

Harrison Ford the man who, a loooong time ago in a galaxy far, far away, was once Han Solo, is once again donning the famous hat and whip and going searching for treasure.

Cate Blanchett, who is rumoured to be starring alongside the arthritic Ford, refuses to tell him he may be too old for the part.

"The problem..." Blanchett admits "... is that, if I tell him that a 64-year-old might look a little stupid fighting ninjas, pirates, and ancient warriors, he might decide not to do the movie and then... I don't get paid. And woman gotta get paid."

However, money isn't the only reason Blanchett is so happy to be featuring alongside Ford.

"In my next feature I'm playing Bob Dylan. I'm not exactly going to feel hot. But standing next to Harrison... I'm going to feel fantastic!"
