There is something reassuring about the return of Indy Jones, not least in the decision for Karen Allen to reprise her role as Marian Ravenwood - who we all fell in love with as little boys.

Far less whiney than Kate Capshaw's Willie Scott, and far more human than Alison Doody's Dr. Schneider, Marian was sufficiently head-strong enough to give Indy a run for his money whilst easily falling upon her feminine charm and the occasional ditzy "Help Indy, get me out of this burning building... basket... snake pit... plane."

With John Hurt on to play her father and Indy's mentor: Abner; Shia LaBeouf as Marian's son Mutt (hmm, Dog names again), Ray Winstone as Indy's assitant and Cate Blanchett as the villain, this film is set to be expensive if not entertaining - and we'll have to wait and see on that front.

At least I have all faith in Koepp... fingers crossed
