Indiana Jones 4 to Film in New Haven


The New Haven Register reports that Indiana Jones 4 will film in New Haven, Connecticut next month:

Indiana Jones will be racing up Chapel Street next month, a spokesman for director Steven Spielberg confirmed Monday.

The fourth installment of the hugely popular series, arriving in theaters almost 20 years after the third, will include some kind of car chase on Chapel between College and High streets. A pre-production crew was in 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,” said Marvin Levy, a spokesman for Spielberg, who did confirm the film will be the next in the series starring Harrison Ford and Sean Connery, set to open May 22, 2008.

Levy said the filming dates are not set, but one merchant said she was told it would happen June 28 and 30.

Barbara J. Lamb, director of the city’s Office of Cultural Affairs, said the production would close down parts of College and Elm streets and possibly other downtown streets as well.

This one will be set in the 1950s, according to several merchants who were approached by crew members. Savitt Jewelers will become a pharmacy, according to owner Mike Rosenthal. And Enson’s men’s clothing store will become … Enson’s.
