"Indy 4": Back to the Ark?

by | July 10, 2007 | Comments

It’s still about a year away from gracing our neighborhood air-conditioned palaces of cinema, but the gossip train has been running full-speed on "Indiana Jones 4" for months, and it shows no sign of slowing down — from Quint at Ain’t It Cool News comes word that maybe, just maybe, "Indy 4"’s storyline will bring the series full circle.

We’re talking, naturally, about the Ark of the Covenant, last seen disappearing among countless crates in a warehouse at the end of "Raiders of the Lost Ark." According to the AICN article, that warehouse might be in an interesting location:

The rumor is that the warehouse we see at the end of Raiders is in Groom Lake (aka Area 51) and the Russians are trying to find it in order to one-up the American military might.

Seeing as how we know (and by "know," we mean "can assume as safely as anything regarding this movie") that Indy’s "Raiders" flame, Karen Allen‘s Marion Ravenwood, is in the film — and that John Hurt might be appearing as Marion’s dad — this makes sense, and the idea of the series obtaining natural closure (or at least a pause before those rumors of Shia LaBeouf taking over the franchise come to fruition) is appealing. However, as Quint cautions us, there’s a reason they call them "rumors":

I love the idea, but from what I know of the film, from trusted sources within the company, there’s just not really any room for the Ark of the Covenant in the story they’re telling. It’s not the main thrust of the movie if it is in the flick and I just can’t see it as being something they’d sideline.

In short, we really don’t know any more about the movie than we did before. But wild conjecture can be its own reward…right?
