Yes Finn you might be right, the actor expressed and interest to reprise the role, and Speilberg said he was open to using the character again.

This interview with Cate Blanchett looks like the one we've seen recently but with some new information I haven't seen before:

Quote:
Cate Blanchett Tells Her Set Story from Indy IV
But she ain't spillin' the secret of the crystal skull.
by Fred Topel | September 19, 2007
Blog Article | Discuss Article
Of course Cate Blanchett can't talk much about her villainous role in Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull, or the plot. We wouldn't expect her to. Just hearing about her first day on the set is plenty.

"It's such a well-oiled, as you say, iconic franchise, and one which I grew up with," Blanchett recalls. "On the first day of shooting, it was extremely surreal. I was watching the monitor as Steven [Spielberg] set up the frame, and I knew the iconography of the frame. I knew the trucks, I knew the layout, I knew the way these things were lit."

Recognizing such elements in person made it hard for Blanchett to do her job. "When I was meant to enter the frame, it was a real Zelig moment. So it's been fantastic, and so much fun. And my boys have had an absolute ball. I've got a couple more weeks."

Even her sons are sworn to secrecy. "I'll be shot and so will you. Don't joke, there's FBI people on the set."

Do Cate's the villian. I figured as much! So the question here is wether she plays a soviet, and if she tries to seduce Indy. (Too LC for me!)

From what the extra has said, my guess is that no seducing will be going on between the two. At first I was worried they'd go a Last Crusade route and have a female villain that was in league with the good guys and reveals herself to be a baddie, but now I get the impression that she's more along the lines of the other villains, bad from the beginning.

She may not be a love interest, but she'll probably still play a sexy character...a femme fatale that Indy may feel attracted to in spite of himself.

New Cate Blanchett info from EmpireOnline:

Quote:
Exclusive: Cate Blanchett Talks Indy IV
We're going to see Butch Blanchett?

There are many words that come to mind when you think Cate Blanchett. Ethereal, maybe. Fantastically talented, certainly. Agreeably antipodean, even. "Butch" is not one of them. But that's what Blanchett recently told us we could expect of her character in Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull.

“Oh, it’s so much fun,” she says of working on the franchise's fourth movie, “I’ve been having a ball. I went on set [recently] and Steven said, ‘I’ve got five really macho things for you to do today.’ He was so excited about butching me up. And I was such a fan [of the Indiana Jones movies], I grew up on them. I was completely in love with Harrison Ford, and still am. He’s a hottie, he’s definitely stood the test of time. And it’s fantastic to be working in a genre that Steven and Harrison know like the back of their hands. They grew up making these films together; it’s like a family, all the people who’ve worked on this franchise. And they’re so welcoming; it’s a really happy set to be on.”

Spielberg has been doing an admirable job of keeping plot points under wraps, but this certainly adds credence to the rumours doing the rounds that Blanchett's playing a villainess, possibly a Russian. One with a touch of androgyny about her, apparently.

Oh...this is...not quite alarming but a little more than concerning. Not really sure what to call that.

I'm thinking "butch" or "macho" more along the lines of Sigourney Weaver in Alien, or Linda Hamilton in Terminator 2. What's wrong with that?

Cate Blanchett can pull it off. And it's not surprising, given that she's supposed to be a Russian interrogator. She's certainly not going to be a soft, gentle interrogator...that would make no sense.

I'm not saying Doris Day, but more Sharon Stone in Basic Instinct? Although that's not a great example. Just a sort of femme fatale in general. No good example is coming to me at the moment (of course, I haven't been expressing my ideas very well lately.)

I doubt her main role in the movie will be as an "interrogator". Calling her an interrogator makes it sound like all she's going to do is interrogate.

There are people involved in government/military whose primary jobs are to interrogate prisoners; they specialize in all the techniques of doing so. That's all I mean by the term. According to rumors Cate will play such a person, but that doesn't mean she won't do any number of other things in the movie.

Well, if she where only an interrogator, given the scene where she gets to do her job, she could appear first when the movie is very advanced in its story. I don't think so, but Henry appeared almost in the middle of the movie.

Great point. She could easily appear well into the first half of the movie. Or disappear in the second half, for a touch of variety!

As for references to butch, keep it together people. Imagine the atmosphere. Its just he style of humour between the principles that exist on these things. Rapport between the director and main female lead. They have what is commonly referred to as A SENSE OF HUMOUR. `You have to be the tough guy today, none of the femine stuff, there are five butch things you have to do today´, of that ilke. This doesn´t mean she was sombrely referring to having to behave in an uber-lesbian leather-clad dominatrix manner. In spite of how several members here may wish the film to progress...

It's just amusing (and sad) how badly some of our folks around here read into random pointers just mentioned to be happening in the film. When they hear about loose head on a statue, it must contain the McGuffin. Some Russian dance to set up an athmosphere means huge musical number. And when Cate Blanchett is associated with word "butch", they start thinking female wrestlers or something... sheesh.

Well given the possibility that she might be be the main villain I would hope she gets more screen time than that.

From MTV:

Quote:
From the very moment he struck an iconic pose onscreen nearly 30 years ago, Indiana Jones became one of the most beloved movie characters of all time. So when word went around town that Harrison Ford was once again itching to whip it up as the intrepid archaeologist, you would think that the actors fortunate enough to hear from Steven Spielberg or George Lucas would instantly jump at the opportunity to star in the series' fourth installment, "Kingdom of the Crystal Skull."

"Well, no," "Indy" producer Frank Marshall laughed. "I think it's an opportunity that doesn't come along very often — to do these kinds of big movies — but they talk to Steven and he pitches the role. [Before they commit], they want to know, rightfully, what the part is."

The actors' roles are a secret Marshall is finally ready to share with the world, explaining exclusively to MTV News just who exactly some new castmembers will be playing.

"Well, Cate [Blanchett] is just spectacular, one of the finest actresses working today. She went from '[The Curious Case of] Benjamin Button' to playing the villainess in 'Indiana Jones,' so she's up for anything," Marshall enthused, confirming speculation that the Oscar winner joined the cast as Indy's main adversary. "She makes a great villain. She had a really fun time.

"Ray Winstone, he came from 'Beowulf' to this," Marshall continued, describing Winstone's character, Mac, as a sort of cross between villain Belloq and friend Sallah. "He plays an archaeologist competitor to Indy. Friend and competitor."

And Jim Broadbent? He plays a Yale colleague of Dr. Jones' that "sort of replaces Marcus Brody," Marshall said.

Oh woe. Although I wouldn't care if it was on the Lifetime Channel. Articles on Indy are good...no matter where they come from.

I like the female main villan this time. 'Tis different. And she seems to be able to play a real hard-***. I hope she beats the pulp out of Indy.

And Mac being an ally and a competitor. That should make for some interesting scenes.

Thanks for the heads-up, Dr.

Now lets take bets on how many threads will be opened to announce this to the Raven. I say 4.

That's exactly what I thought, when I read this stuff. I always liked Belloq, because of his past and the way he presented himself, I just hope Winstone lives up to the expectations.

If I am to make predictions now, he's a guy Russians have hired, but he turns and starts fighting for Indy's cause instead.

Mac a competitor, eh? I wonder if they'll compete for Marion, the same way Indy and Belloq did in Raiders?
