Tried the old trick of giving the starter motor a hit with a hammer or something solid. Overtime they can get a little uncooperative. If that doesnt work try getting a mate to start the car while you tap the starter with something.

Is the starter solenoid wire attached? It comes out of the injector loom at the back of the engine and has a female spade terminal on the end

Could be the good old B.C.M. issue, try holding the key over to the 'start' position and give the lower dash a firm thump just above your left knee. If she fires up, the B.C.M. (Body Control Module, controls Smartlock, interior lights etc..) is playing up.
