image for Indiana Jones comes out of retirement
Slow! Filming on location ahead.

After a gap of almost twenty years, Stephen Spielberg is about to begin filming a sequel to his successful 1980's Indiana Jones adventure series starring Harrison Ford and Sean Connery. 'Indiana Jones and the Daytrip to Bangor' is a ripping tale of a band of pensioners on a quest to discover the fabled Fountain of Youth before they kick the bucket.

Innovative special effects company Lucas Films have developed a revolutionary technology called geriatronics which will almost have the audience believing that Ford and Connery are still alive.

While details of the final script remain shrouded in secrecy the Spoof can reveal that the outline plot has geriatric nurse Cate Blanchett assisting Indi in the rescue of his father (Sean Connery, 95) from an old people's home in Eastbourne before setting out for the North Wales resort in a hijacked mobility van.

The full cast has yet to be announced, but is rumoured to include Courteney Cox (Monica Geller in the TV series 'Friends'), who as the last surviving cast member of Coccoon, has valuable experience of working with old people.

Harrison's stunt double, the sprightly Bruce Forsyth (79), has complained about the three hour makeup process required to make him look old enough for the part.

Make Joey da dog's day - give this story five thumbs-up (there's no need to register, the thumbs are just down there!)
