Indiana Jones reunites with Marion, again.


MTV Movies Blog reports that it was announced at Comic-Con today that Karen Allen will be back as Marion Ravenwood in Indiana Jones IV — just as she predicted at a screening of Raiders of the Lost Ark (1981) over a year ago. Mind you, she also predicted at that time that Natalie Portman might be in the new movie as Indy’s daughter, and that prediction doesn’t seem to have come true — though rumours do persist that the Shia LaBeouf character will turn out to be Indy’s son. (Perhaps the character’s gender was changed in rewrites?) At any rate, what about the other prediction she made, that the Temple of Doom (1984) leading lady played by Kate Capshaw — who now happens to be Steven Spielberg’s wife — might also be in the new film…?

    I like Karen Allen, but I don’t hold out much hope for this new film.
