The New Haven Register reported that film crew of "Fourth Installment of the Indiana Jones Adventures" would shoot some of the flick's scenes in New Haven, Connecticut next month.
The layers covering filming locations on "Fourth Installment of the Indiana Jones Adventures" apparently has had the first one lifted by now.
The New Haven Register has claimed that it has obtained confirmation from a spokesman for director Steven Spielberg on Monday, May 13 informing that the highly anticipated project will get shot in New Haven, Connecticut at the city's Chapel Street next month.
Scenes taken will include what looks like to be car chase on Chapel between College and High streets. A pre-production crew reportedly stopped by the city last week and Monday talking to shop owners on the block.
"I really have no details on it at all, except to say that there will be some filming there," the spokesman, Marvin Levy, remarked while adding that the filming dates are not set yet despite one merchant's statement that production would be commenced on June 28 and 30.
Regarding this matter, New Haven's Office of Cultural Affairs director Barbara J. Lamb revealed that the shooting on the flick would close down parts of College and Elm streets and possibly other downtown streets as well.
"We are working with them on a plan to minimize those disruptions on the community," she informed. "We will ensure the smoothest flow of both vehicular and pedestrian traffic in downtown New Haven."
The follow-up to the hit adventure franchise after the last installment in 1989, "Indy 4" has already had "Spider-Man" scribe David Koepp onboard to pen the script, which is still being kept tight in secrecy up to this time. Renowned filmmaker/producer George Lucas is returning to executive produce alongside Kathleen Kennedy with Frank Marshall serving as producer.
