Here is your “Indiana Jones” update!

‘Indy Jones’ sequel to shoot in Conn.
NEW HAVEN, Conn. (AP) – Some star power is coming to downtown New Haven, where scenes are scheduled to be filmed next month for a sequel to the popular “Indiana Jones” movie series.
A spokesman for director Steven Spielberg has confirmed that the fourth instalment of the action series will include a car chase set to be filmed on Chapel Street between College and High streets.
A preproduction crew visited the city last week and Monday to check locations and talk with merchants, one of whom said they were told that filming would occur June 28 and 30, the New Haven Register reported Tuesday.
“I really have no details on it at all, except to say that there will be some filming there,” Marvin Levy, a spokesman for Spielberg, told the newspaper.
The movie, starring Harrison Ford and Sean Connery is set to open May 22, 2008. It will be the fourth in the series, which began with the 1981 film “Raiders of the Lost Ark.”
That movie was followed by two sequels: “Indiana Jones and the Temple of Doom” in 1984 and “Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade” in 1989.
The new instalment is tentatively titled “Indiana Jones IV” and, in addition to Ford and Connery, is slated to feature actors Cate Blanchett and Shia LeBeouf.
Several New Haven merchants said their storefronts will be transformed to capture the 1950s-era look of the film, which centres on the adventures of fictional archaeologist and professor Indiana Jones.
The last Hollywood visit to the city was in September, when Uma Thurman filmed a scene for the thriller “In Bloom,” planned for release later this year. That also was shot on Chapel Street.
The Board of Aldermen must approve the street closings and other details before filming can occur.
Alderman Nicholas Shalek, who represents the city’s downtown area, said he had not heard the names Spielberg, Lucas and Ford in connection with the project, but that city officials were told the movie would be “big.”
“Generally, I think its a terrific thing for the city,” he said.
