that Star Wars is over, George Lucas can finally get back into making experimental, indie type films. Like Indiana Jones 4.

It seems to me like this movie not only should never happen, but that it quite likely will never happen. Still, Lucas et al are forging ahead, and now the Emperor is focusing his efforts on Sean Connery, whom he wants to bring back for another round as Indy’s dad. Says a press release from news juggernaut Access Hollywood:

Despite reports that Connery is retired, Lucas told Menounos last night, "I would love him to be in the next ‘Indiana Jones’…maybe I can push him into it." When asked if he knew whether or not Connery wanted to appear in the film, Lucas said, "I think he does."

Lucas jokingly added, "We are writing him in whether he wants to do it or not."

Jokingly? The Emperor never jokes. Connery, your only hope is to begin a new life underground.
