    Re: 'Indy 4' for May 2008

    New flick brings old cars, memories to city

    -NEW HAVEN — Already looking picturesque in a fashionably nostalgic sundress, Yale University law student Helen Eenmaa solidified the perfect pose for a 1950s poster when she hopped into a 1957 Chevy Bel Air 210 parked along Chapel Street before being featured in a scene of the new "Indiana Jones" film.

    "Except in (auto show) exhibitions, we haven’t seen such cars," said the 26-year-old Estonia native, as she hopped into the front seat of the turquoise vintage car, draped an arm out the open window and flashed a coquettish smile.

    As if on queue, the digital camera captures the moment by the good graces of her equally intrigued friend and fellow law student, Ruslan Dimitriev, 29, of Moscow, Russia.

    The Yale duo weren’t alone in their fascination with the dozens of vintage cars lining the streets around the Green as the crew of the highly anticipated Harrison Ford movie took up its third day of filming in New Haven.

    Primarily owned by Connecticut residents who will drive them in the movie, set in the 1950s, the vintage cars attracted the general spectators and car buffs alike as though they were on display like an antique car night at a local parking lot or fast-food joint.

    "The people are drawn to them like magnets," acknowledged Jim Inglese of North Branford, owner of a black 1940 Ford Standard, as he relaxed between takes with a group of the other car owners.

    Other vehicles parked along the Green included a Packard Panama Super Clipper, Chrysler De Soto, Plymouth Savoy and several Chevrolet Bel Airs.

    His head briefly disappearing underneath the open hood of the turquoise Bel Air, Bethany resident Harley Hiscock instantly struck up a conversation of memories with other spectators and the car’s owner, Robert A. Gasparri, of Waterbury.

    "My first car I bought in 1936. If I had it today, it would be worth a fortune," said Hiscock, 91, noting that he spent $700 on a Chevrolet car, but not the "great" V-6 Bel Air that Gasparri decided to customize with a 400 short block.

    Even passers-by in their modern cars slowed down long enough to snap shots of the old models and those nearby drivers dressed in era clothing.

    "Hey, that’s one of my students," said Wilbur Cross High School Principal Robert Canelli as a camera turned his way. Canelli will be one of the drivers, along with his uncle Anthony Mongillo, who will drive his own 1958 Ford Fairlane.

    Some drivers’ cars also bring rich family history with them, such as the 1952 Crosley Sedan owned by Donna DeLorenzo of North Haven, whose daughter, Amy DeLorenzo, 19, convinced her to pitch to the crew for use.

    Although the younger DeLorenzo is still lamenting the fact she can’t drive the car due to her lack of a driver’s license, it will be driven by her brother, Joseph DeLorenzo Jr., 22, who hid a picture and written request in the car when their now deceased father sold it 11 years ago.

    Hoping to get the car back, he asked the English owner to contact the family should it ever be sold again and brought back overseas

    "I got a call one morning from England saying it was coming back to Connecticut," said Donna DeLorenzo, adding that her husband bought it back in October 2003.

    Up the street, vintage car and sign enthusiast Jim Fellows, 52, of Middletown, ventured to the Elm City for a day sight seeing trip with his girlfriend, Lindsay Ruppel, 44, of Roxbury, both walking away impressed by the convincing nostalgia of the altered shop fronts and antique wheels.

    "This one looks like they made it, but the (S. Malatesta & Sons moving truck) looks like it was put in a garage for 50 years," said Fellow, comparing it to a freshly painted truck.

    According to Michael Pacella of Derby, whose 1956 Chevy Bel Air will be filmed, the weathered look on the cars’ exteriors comes from a industry concoction of water and talcum powder to achieve the desired affect of the fall season the movie will portray.

    The vintage look wasn’t lost on the new era of potential Indiana Jones fans, like Zachary Wirth, 4, of Shelton, who looked in confusion from his stroller at an old Harley Davidson as his father attempted to explain that the metal attachments meant the bike would be attached to a car for stunts.

    "On what car?" Zachary asked, peeking out of a pair of binoculars for the elusive vehicle.

                          Isle abuzz over new 'Indy' film


                          Some residents to be in movie as filming on the Big Isle moved up to mid-July

                          by John Burnett
                          Tribune-Herald Staff Writer
                          Sunday July 1, 2007
                          At least one area casting call has taken place for the fourth installment of the Indiana Jones adventure films.

                          Tim Ryan, executive editor of Hawaii Film & Video Magazine, reported Wednesday in his blog, "Tim Ryan's Reel Hawaii," that Laura Bollinger of Big Island Casting in Kona held a recent casting call through the Hawaii offices of the Screen Actors Guild seeking "Eastern European military-looking males for an action sequence to be shot in Hilo 'in mid-July' for Indy."

                          One of the opening sequences of the film will have the archaeologist/adventurer Jones, played by Harrison Ford, in a fight sequence with Russian soldiers, Ryan wrote -- a scenario reminiscent of the video game "Indiana Jones and the Infernal Machine."

                          That would also be consistent with a blog entry on Movieweb.com by a "CLReif 87," who wrote that her husband, a soldier, whom she described as "a blonde hair, blue eyed, tall, bulky guy -- like the Mad Russian in the Rocky movies (Dolph Lundgren)" -- and six Army mates were extras on the set when filming opened in Deming, N.M., which was festooned to resemble Morocco in the mid-20th century.

                          Bollinger confirmed the union casting call to the Tribune-Herald on Thursday, saying "I still have a few parts to cast." She declined to elaborate, referring the HTH to the production office in Hilo, which also refused comment.

                          Unit publicist Deb Wuliger said Saturday that the mid-July time frame for local filming is correct, but that open casting calls for extras "are not in the plan as far as I know."

                          The film, directed by Steven Spielberg with George Lucas as executive director, is as yet untitled, but the Las Cruces, N.M., Sun-News has reported that the working title is "Indiana Jones and the City of the Gods."

                          Filming has wrapped in New Mexico and is currently going on in New Haven, Conn., where College Street, according to the New Haven Independent, was decorated to turn the clock back a half-century, with parking meters removed, streetlights changed and street signs changed to turn New Haven into Bedford and Yale University into Marshall College. Vintage cars from 1945 to '55 were brought in, and the stunt doubles and extras filming a chase scene there Thursday were costumed in the clothes of the period.

                          One stunt double reportedly fell off a motorcycle during a chase scene. It is not known whether the tumble was intentional, but according to New Haven Fire Chief Michael Grant, the man was taken to the hospital "cut up" and "semi-conscious."

                          Ford, meanwhile, was in Yale's William L. Harkness Hall for a lecture scene. Other confirmed credited cast members are Cate Blanchett, John Hurt, Ray Winstone, Jim Broadbent and Shia LaBeouf.

                              Spielberg and Lucas in Hilo


                              Giants of American cinema arrive in East Hawaii for newest Indiana Jones film

                              George Lucas and Steven Spielberg, two of the biggest names in Hollywood, quietly touched down in Hilo on Monday to work on the fourth Indiana Jones movie.

                              The two landed just after 4:30 p.m. at the old Hilo airport. They arrived separately in private jets amid tight security. They were given lei and were quickly escorted into different vehicles before leaving the airport for undisclosed locations.

                              Spielberg is directing the film, which will once again feature actor Harrison Ford as the wisecracking, whip-snapping Indiana Jones. Lucas is co-executive producer and co-writer.

                              The movie, which reportedly has been given the working title "Indiana Jones and the City of the Gods," is scheduled to be released in 2008.

                              Part of the film is being shot at various locations around East Hawaii, including an undisclosed waterfall on the Hamakua Coast and on a secluded piece of Shipman Estate property near Keaau, sources have told the Tribune-Herald. Filming is expected to take about three weeks.

                              Members of the film crew reportedly are staying at various East Hawaii hotels, including the Hilo Hawaiian Hotel.

                              The Indiana Jones films began in 1981 with the release of "Raiders of the Lost Ark." That and subsequent installments are some of the highest-grossing films in movie history.

                                'Indy 4' filming on Hawaii's Big Island


                                Associated Press
                                via The Hollywood Reporter
                                July 12, 2007

                                HILO, Hawaii -- The fourth "Indiana Jones" movie began filming on the Big Island this week with Hollywood powerhouses Harrison Ford, Steven Spielberg and George Lucas.

                                The movie, which hasn't been named yet, will be filming over the next three weeks along the Hamakua Coast north of Hilo. Other scenes have been shot in New Haven, Conn.

                                Studio officials aren't talking about the movie's Big Island invasion or even revealing the title, rumored to be "Indiana Jones and the City of Gods" or simply "Indiana Jones IV."

                                "They're insisting on using 'The Untitled Genre Project' as a title, putting us in an awkward position," said Donne Dawson, Hawaii's film commissioner who confirmed the production's presence on the Big Island.

                                The film, 18 years after release of "Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade," will again feature Ford as the wisecracking, whip-snapping adventurer. The first Indiana Jones movie, "Raiders of the Lost Arc," started filming in 1980.

                                Spielberg is directing the movie, as he did the first three films of the franchise. The producer is Frank Marshall and the executive producer is Kathleen Kennedy.

                                The movie started production in Deming, N.M., and it will be distributed by Paramount Pictures for an expected May 2008 release. Its budget is reported to be $125 million.

                                Shooting is scheduled at several Big Island spots, including a waterfall near the coast and a secluded piece of Shipman Estate property near Keaau.

                                Spielberg's company, DreamWorks, also is filming "Tropic Thunder" on Kauai.

                                Ben Stiller stars in the $100 million comedy about actors in a war movie who unexpectedly face real fighting.

                                Other actors cast in the new "Indiana Jones" movie include Shia LeBeouf, Cate Blanchet, Jim Broadbent, John Hurt and Ray Winstone. It wasn't clear how many of them would be on the Big Island for filming.

                                Spielberg has filmed a few other hits in Hawaii, including "Raiders of the Lost Ark," "Jurassic Park," "The Lost World: Jurassic Park" and "Jurassic Park III."
