Lucas Wants Connery Back for "Indy 4"

While attending a gala event in honor of legendary actor Sean Connery, filmmaker George Lucas told Access Hollywood that he's intent on getting the sly Scotsman to reprise his Henry Jones role for "Indiana Jones 4." No word yet on how interested Connery is, although Lucas seems to think he's game.

From Access Hollywood: "Despite reports that Connery is retired, Lucas told (Access Hollywood), "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."

i dunno Indy 3 was so good with connery, but I think they sort of played through the different aspects of the father-son thing. what do i know, but personally i think they should go with a brand new approach.

Is it me or does Ford actually look older than Connery these days?

Connery definitely gave Indy 3 a much-needed boost in the fun department. I'd love to see him in the next one.

Lucas+Ford+Connery getting together to have fun one final time with Indiana Jones and you have Spielberg involved in script approval and directing it with a John Williams a soundtrack. Regardless of their ages, this sounds pretty damn good to me!

hey I know Ford and Connery will look the same age, but The Last Crusade was my favorite of the Indy series so maybe it will work.
