Although, as with all Steven Spielberg movies, a thick wall of secrecy surrounds the production of the upcoming 'Indiana Jones' movie, enterprising reporters in New Mexico have observed that work has already begun on transforming the town of Deming into Morocco during World War II for initial filming due to begin later this month.
A newspaper noted that a building at the former air strip near the town has been painted blue, with an Air Force insignia and the words "Home of the Fighter Pilot" painted on the wall. Vehicles with Air Force insignias are also parked nearby. The newspaper said that the film's working title is 'Indiana Jones' and the 'City of the Gods'. Other reports have indicated that production will move to tropical-forest locations near Hilo, Hawaii following the New Mexico shoot.
