Spielberg-Hanks Reunion Could Bump Up Indy

Steven Spielberg and Tom Hanks have already gone to war and pursued a check forger, so it's only logical that their next collaboration be an airport comedy titled "Terminal," right? Maybe not, but "Saving Private Ryan" and "Catch Me If You Can" have combined to gross more than $360 million in the US, so the duo could join forces on a medieval porn flick and most studios would gladly give it the green light.

"Terminal" follows an immigrant (Hanks) who takes refuge at a New York airport after a war wipes his country from existence, thereby rendering his official documents worthless. Variety says Spielberg is negotiating to direct the film -- with Hanks on the marquee Spielberg's involvement is pretty much assured -- and filming is likely to begin later this year.

And this is where things get interesting. Variety also says that Spielberg could have enough free time in his pre-"Terminal" schedule to work on "Indiana Jones 4." The anticipated sequel is tentatively slated for a 2005 release, but the trade magazine astutely notes that Paramount wouldn't have any objections to receiving a big, lucrative "Indy" move in time for summer 2004.
