Minority Report director Steven Spielberg has ended months of speculation and confirmed that Sean Connery will feature in the new Indiana Jones film - but only "for a few scenes." And the veteran filmmaker is also hoping to reunite the globe trotting archeologist Indy with all his former love interests too. Karen Allen, who played Marion in Raiders Of The Lost Ark, is set to star for "one sound bite." Spielberg adds, "There are other Indy girls who had smaller roles who will come back." However, there may be trouble closer at home as script writer Frank Darabont has warned the Catch Me If You Can director that he may not be able to write in Spielberg's real-life wife Kate Capshaw, who played Willie Scott in Indiana Jones And The Temple Of Doom. Spielberg explains, "Frank Darabont, who is writing the script, called me and said, 'I'm not sure we can work her into the script too.'"
