According to this article and various reports from this year’s ComiCon in San Diego, Karen Allen will be returning for the next Indiana Jones movie! For those of you who don’t know, Karen Allen was the female protagonist in the first Indiana Jones film and has been in other films such as Scrooged with Bill Murray, and of course the classic Animal House. They have a photo of Karen up at the official Indiana Jones web site, so check it out.
This news just makes me happy. For one, I like Karen Allen in all the movies I have seen her in. Two, I just love when movies like this bring people back from previous movies. This makes me even more excited to see Indy 4, and it at least appears that this one will be faithful to the other three movies. Now, if they can just keep George Lucas away from, well everything, I think they’ll be ok.
