Shia LaBeouf Leaks 'Indiana Jones' Fourth Title At VMAs

'Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull' is the name we've all been waiting for.

"If adventure has a name ... it must be Indiana Jones," a publicity campaign announced in 1984. Now we know that the fourth installment in the Indiana Jones series has a name, and it will be "Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull."

Ever since the last Indiana Jones adventure, "Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade," was released in 1989, rumors of a fourth film have run wild. Several high-profile Hollywood writers, including Frank Darabont ("The Shawshank Redemption") (see [article id="1557263"]"After 'Waste Of A Year' On 'Indy 4,' Director Rebounds With Stephen King's 'Mist' "[/article]) and M. Night Shyamalan ("The Sixth Sense") were signed on to pen the sequel in the last few years. In the end, it was a polished script by David Koepp ("War of the Worlds") that convinced Steven Spielberg, George Lucas and Harrison Ford to break out the famed fedora one more time. The film has been shooting since June in locations ranging from Connecticut to Hawaii.

The story line is being kept under wraps for now. But we do know that several new castmembers are part of the adventure. The aforementioned LaBeouf has been rumored to be playing Jones' long-lost son. And his mother could be none other than Marion Ravenwood from "Raiders of the Lost Ark." Spielberg announced that Karen Allen would reprise her role as Ravenwood during a dramatic Comic-Con presentation in July.

Ford introduced actor Ray Winstone ("Beowulf") in that same presentation, describing him as his "sidekick." Also in the cast are Oscar winner Cate Blanchett and John Hurt. The most pervasive rumors have them pegged as a villain and the long-lost Abner Ravenwood (Marion's father) respectively. Sean Connery will not reprise his role as Indiana Jones' father, saying he finds retirement "too damned much fun" (see [article id="1561905"]" 'Indiana Jones 4' Loses Sean Connery As Indy's Dad, Picks Up John Hurt"[/article]).

"Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull" is set for release May 22.
