Paramount to begin filming pic in June

After years of languishing in development, the fourth installment of the Indiana Jones franchise is finally moving ahead, as Steven Spielberg, George Lucas and Harrison Ford look to reconnect with their blockbuster roots. The trio confirmed Monday that Paramount is set to begin lensing the new Indiana Jones pic in June from a script by David Koepp (“Spider-Man”). Par and Lucasfilm, which is producing, are eyeing a May 2008 worldwide release — some 19 years after the last film in the action-adventure franchise, “Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade,” came out.
