Somewhere on a Downey Studios soundstage, you can actually see this. Or a scaled-down version at least. But why?
AICN‘s Moriarty seems to be indicating that he has at least a partial answer for this, but after the tragedy of Tyler Nelson and the Violated Non-Disclosure Agreement, he’s understandably reticent to share his info. All he’s saying is that the cavernous government warehouse, which was nothing more than a big punch line at the end of Raiders of the Lost Ark, has been recreated for a scene of some sort in Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull – and the significance of said scene might contradict some of what we’ve already ascertained (i.e. damn near everything) about this fourth installment.
While there’s no way in hell you’ll be able to get past the throng of security guarding this set to snap a picture, that doesn’t mean you shouldn’t get arrested trying. So I offer this reward: anyone who provides me with a clear image of the warehouse set will win a shitty VHS copy of Ferdinando Baldi’s 1983 epic, Treasure of the Four Crowns. That’s got to be worth a night in the clink.
