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.
