That Indiana Jones Feeling

George Lucas has admitted that the current Indiana Jones script has a role for Sean Connery in it, but should he decide not to appear, a 'quick rewrite' will remove the part.

That seems to mean one of the three following things: a) his part is absolutely insignificant and can be removed without wobbling the script structure at all b) Lucas and co don't much care about tidying up loose ends and would just nix the Connery role and to hell with tidying up around the omission c) their script operative (whoever it might be on rewrite duty) is so good that they can quickly and efficiently tidy up an entire screenplay after a character with a point and purpose simply evaporates into thin air.

Who knows which of these it is, eh? I certainly have my suspicions...
