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.

The Return of the Michael Bay Blogs! This Time, With More Scathing Evisceration and Burnt Bridges

Bay with the producers that stayed on his good side.
