The New York Observer has posted an article about Paramount Pictures has taken over the campus of Yale University to film the forthcoming fourth installment of the popular Indiana Jones series. "They've transformed a whole block of storefronts to make them look like 1957," senior student Lauren Dunn told the newspaper.
Dunn, who was cast as an extra after waiting in line for four hours along with "thousands" of other "aspiring movie stars", is bound to secrecy about her participation by a confidentiality agreement. She did divulge that she would be playing a student, and will be wearing "period clothes."

Construction along Chapel Street began late last week, and the production team has also set up shop in Yale's main dining hall. Filming begins on June 28. "It's the opening scene of the movie," Dunn says. "[Harrison Ford] is teaching a class and he hears some noise outside, which turns out to be an anti-Communist rally, and he goes out to investigate and he recognizes one of his old rivals from one of the other movies and he jumps on a motorcycle and ends up being chased by some guys in a car." She added: "I've heard rumors that the archeological artifact that they're looking for is the fountain of youth," Ms. Dunn said. "But I don't know."
Spielberg's son, Theo, is currently a sophomore at Yale. The newspaper contacted a Paramount publicist who refused to comment on the family connection, or any aspect of the production.
