The Complete Making of Indiana Jones (upcoming book)

This should be cool:



Indiana Jones is Back -- and Del Rey's Got Him

Quote
Del Rey Books, an imprint of Ballantine Books at the Random House Publishing Group, has announced that it will publish tie-in books based on the long-awaited, eagerly anticipated new movie, Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull, which will premiere throughout the world on May 22, 2008.

Del Rey Books was the publisher of the original movie novels, and this new adventure will be penned by New York Times-bestselling author James Rollins (Black Order, Map of Bones, Sandstorm, and the forthcoming The Judas Strain). Del Rey will also be publishing The Making of Indiana Jones by Laurent Bouzereau and J. W. Rinzler, a behind-the-scenes look at the people, places, technology, and events that went into the creation of all four Indiana Jones movies, beginning with the classic Raiders of the Lost Ark and culminating with an up-close-and-personal look at the brand-new blockbuster.

"We're very excited to be working with Del Rey on the new Indiana Jones books," said Carol Roeder, Lucasfilm's Director of Publishing. "Del Rey was there with the first Star Wars novel, and the first Indiana Jones novel, so it's wonderful to be able to continue the great adventure together."

"The Indiana Jones movies have attained legendary status in the world of film, and the character of Indiana Jones is a legend in his own right," noted Del Rey editor Shelly Shapiro. "We are thrilled to be a part of his return, and to have the opportunity to show an entire new generation of readers how exciting these novels can be."

As announced last September, Random House/Del Rey will be releasing The Complete Making of Indiana Jones on May 22, 2008, the same day the fourth Indy adventure is set to hit theaters!

Penned by Lucasfilm's J.W. Rinzler, the The Complete Making of Indiana Jones will cover the making of all four Indy movies, including Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull. If the new book is anything like Rinzler's Making of Star Wars, which exhaustively chronicled the making of the first Star Wars movie, Indy fans should be in for quite a treat.

The final front and back covers of the book are shown here below. Note that the front image will have a gold duotone finish, similar to the silver one used on Making of Star Wars.
