Indy update Can Indy do it again?
If we were slap bang in the middle of the 90s and Harrison Ford was gearing up to release another Indiana Jones flick, we would be thrilled.

After all, most of us have spent many a pleasant afternoon watching the hunky archaeologist chasing treasures all over the globe.

But here we are in 2007, with the actor reprising his role of adventure-seeking Indy for the fourth time at the ripe old age of 64, and we have to ask, will it be the same?

Note this:
"If they take a tongue in cheek approach it would work but if they take themselves completely seriously they might not manage it," she says.

"I have heard that they have been quite clever with Indiana Jones and will be playing it quite tongue in cheek which should work."

Maybe true. They're going to have to deal with the age issue, which they mention in the piece. One doubts whether Indy'll be hauling himself up the back of a speeding truck again. I haven't seen, but heard pretty good things about Rocky Balboa so this might work out all right.

Interesting trvia bit: For Terminator 3, Schwarzenegger went back to the gym and worked himself into the same measurements he had for T2 because he was supposed to be an un-aging android.
