This makes me wonder if Sean Connery would be open to being in Indy5 as just the voice of Henry Sr.'s ghost or at least what could be one interpretation as such via the supernatural McGuffin.

Nice thought.

When Indy's in peril in Siberia after seizing documents leading to the Nazi Atlantis, the spirit of his father will appear to him like Obi Wan to Luke after the Wampa attack.

Henry: Junior...Junior...
Indy: Dad?
Henry: You will go to Atlantis(or a mysterious place in Argentina in my vision).
Indy: Atlantis?
Henry: There you will obtain true fortune and glory.
Indy: Dad!!!!!!!.....Dad! (Henry's ghost fades as "Jonathan" Ke Huy Quan swoops in to reprise his roll as an older, much more sophisticated, and feistier than ever Short Round.)

How amazing and bizarre would this be? Holy Jumpin!

Indy5 might be the last major blockbuster that Lucas will ever make so self refrences to movies throughout his career if not done tacky would be appropriate.

Thats one reason I think setting it in 1962 makes sense since that references American Graffiti and its also the year Sean Connery starred as Dr. No as James Bond 007, the father of Indiana Jones. A star wars inside reference like described above would be cool to as would an obvious 1138 reference.

Sean Connery has officially retired from doing any movies and public appearances. Michael Caine says Connery is not moving much these days.

It would be nice if Indy finds his old father now after thinking he was killed in the war or something like that. He was actually captured for something {can't think a reason now}and he was on the run hidding somewhere....and the story goes on
Seems nice to me, what you guys think ?
About Connery's retirement, I think he can make an exeption for Indiana Jones. It's not a new movie, it's a special movie for us and for him too IMO. It will be nice to end his acting career on an ending scene like the one from Last Crusade !

Going off topic for a few seconds, I was hoping Sean Connery would have been able to make an appearance in the new James Bond movie, SKYFALL (2012), since they are going to be filming scenes in Scotland and it is the 50th Anniversary movie.

I believe he now spends his time on roses, Tanagra figurines, and Debussy.

As to the subject at hand, I fail to see why you'd want to overwrite Henry Sr.'s established death. Do we really expect that if he had simply gone missing that Indy wouldn't have found him?

They need to let poor Henry go. I love his character but they made it pretty clear he died. Connery was great in LC but I want them to avoid going back to the old films. Leave the dead dead. I wouldn't mind Sallahs return or even Marion if its not all jokey dialogue between her and Indy but leave Mutt in school and let Sr R.I.P.
No more nods to the previous films. Let's do something fresh this time. And bringing back Sr will take away from a serious adventure and lead to a movie full of two older guys bantering. You might as well make a movie about those two guys in the balcony on the Muppets.

It's a pity really because I thought they killed off Henry Jones Senior too cheaply i.e. without any dramatic effect/consequence in KOTCS - other than Indy feeling a bit isolated and down. Better if they'd kept him alive, and off screen, or have some significant on-screen ramification of his death that drove Indy through the quest. Besides... we all know that Henry Jones Senior should have lived into his 100's after drinking from the Grail.

I can see why they did it, apart from Connery not wanting to be involved: Indy having reconciled his relationship with his father in 1938, we might expect that to be reiinforced in 1957. They gave us that with the photo on the desk, while at the same time making a clean break: there's no going back.

It wasn't an ideal situation, as the relationship of the father and older son (Indy) was more compelling than that of the father and the younger son (Mutt).

KOTCS was creating a climate of isolation for Indy, readying him for marriage and family. That wasn't ideal either.

Oh yes, the greatest issue of KotcS for me was that Sallah was missing. If Indy 5 has Sallah in it it's already gonna be a much better movie than the 4th one !

If you pay attention to the dialogue in "Skull", Henry Sr. died well after WW2 was over. Plus, Connery is now in his 80s and his health is failing. Don't expect to see him in a new Indy movie.

Perhaps you aren't aware but Connery lives comfortably in the Bahamas* and won't go back to Scotland until it seperates from the U.K.

*(My best friend goes to the Bahamas once a year and has met him numerous times. He has even been to Connery's house. No joke.)

A sentiment we both share. Henry Sr. is dead.

That sir is impressive. I don't think I'll ever get that chance considering he's 80.

He also likes to golf.

I, somewhat, agree with this, Darth. According to expanded-universe-Indy-lore, Henry Sr. would've been 85 in 1957. Had he still been alive at that point:

"I've jusht resheived thish shtrange letter from Harold Oxshley...but I'm a dying man, Junior. Thish is a tashk deshtined for you, boy."

Yes, I'm very jealous of my buddy since his sister is friends with Connery & lives in the same neighbourhood (this is the very 1st time I've ever mentioned it here at The Raven). He has some fun stories, that's for sure!

Oddly enough I also know someone who's been to his house there quite a few times! And yeah... stories...

I don't think I want him to bother doing any films or anything: enjoy your retirement Sir Sean.

I think this was the last time I saw him on telly and he sounded a bit frail then:

He does sound frail, but if you think about it, its not bad for 80-something years old. I will definitely shed some tears when Connery passes.

Wow that was morbid. Sorry I brought the conversation down that road

Well, all of us men will have to face Old Father Time. We have used our body so much, that eventually our hips and legs have had it. Michael Caine said himself, his friend Sean Connery was not moving around much.
I would love to see Sean Connery make an appearance in SKYFALL (2012), even if they have to use a green screen.
They are allowing Connery to have his dignity. Traveling in your 80's, can be embarrassing. It's important to stay home where you can be safe and near your medication and loved ones.

I agree - I see why they did it... I just thought the net result wasn't worth it. I also agree that they tried to recreate a dynamic in KOTCS that, unfortunately, could not match the one in TLC (as we've discussed in other threads).

Connery in Indy 5 would never happen, and I seriously hope they don't go down the route of having Indy looking for a missing person AGAIN. Enough of that. I can deal with another family outing (we're never really going to have Indy on his own again, are we?) but at least make it that he isn't simply following in someone else's footsteps.
