'Indy 4' not enough to lure Connery back

How is this not fun??

In case you missed the news today, Sean Connery will not be returning for 'Indy 4.'

"I thought long and hard about it, and if anything could have pulled me out of retirement it would have been an 'Indiana Jones' film,'' says the 76-year-old actor currently having too much "fun" out of the industry to be sucked back in, even for a landmark picture like this. Too bad. The man has plenty of mileage in him yet.

But take a look at the rest of the cast. Not too shabby, apart from the terrifying rumors of Kate Capshaw returning. (Any involvement beyond fetching coffee for the real actors is not acceptable.) Ray Winstone is a phenomenal talent who's been in the moving pictures forever now without the true break-through role he deserves. Check him out here in a brilliant piece of film called The Proposition to see what I mean (beware the violence). And I'd pay to watch Kate Blanchett in a dog food commercial. Now, as the new Indy Girl adventure babe? Sign. Me. Up.

Yes, my hopes are getting dangerously high for this one, even with out Connery in the mix.
