'Indiana Jones' To Begin Filming In 2007
BEVERLY HILLS, January 1, 2007 -- Director George Lucas said Friday that filming for the much-anticipated "Indiana Jones" movie will begin next year, and he promises it will be "the best one yet."
Lucas says he and director Steven Spielberg recently finalized the script, which stars Harrison Ford, who appeared in the three earlier flicks.
The 62-year-old filmmaker was interviewed at the Beverly Wilshire hotel while taking a break from his duties as grand marshal for the Rose Parade.
Exact film locations have not been decided yet, but Lucas said part of the movie will be shot in Los Angeles.
The fourth chapter of the "Indiana Jones" saga, which will hit theaters in May 2008, has been in development for over a decade with several screenwriters taking a crack at the script, but it only recently gained momentum.
Lucas kept mum about the plot, but he promised the latest action flick will be a "character piece" that will include "very interesting mysteries."
