Harrison Ford Forced To Stop Filming Indiana Jones 5 After Injury

Indiana Jones And The Raiders Of The Lost Ark

This was bound to happen at some point! Harrison Ford’s been forced to stop filming Indiana Jones 5 after sustaining a shoulder injury on set.

This isn’t the first time Harrison Ford’s been involved in an accident on set that’s ended up stopping production.

Whilst filming Star Wars: The Force Awakens, a prop door fell on Ford and he broke his ankle in the process.

That ended up putting a delay on filming and it seems as though a similar thing’s happened to the legendary actor whilst getting ready to film Indiana Jones 5 in the UK.

According to Deadline, 78-year-old was hurt whilst rehearsing a fight scene for the upcoming movie.

This was revealed by a spokesperson for the Walt Disney Company.

However, it was also revealed that production on Indiana Jones 5 is expected to continue as planned.

They are just going to have to rejig the filming schedule a bit and try and work around Ford’s injury.

Ford’s injury will be evaluated and they are working on what treatment he should follow in order to ensure he’s back and as good as new as soon as possible.

Indiana Jones 5 is being directed by James Mangold after Steven Spielberg decided to step away from the project.

Mangold is, in my opinion, an excellent choice for this movie.

He’s made the likes of Logan, The Mans 66 (or Ford Vs. Ferrari) and Walk The Line.

He’s an excellent director and I cannot wait to see what he does with this legendary franchise.

The film will star Ford, Mads Mikkelsen, Phoebe Waller-Bridge, Toby Jones, Boyd Holbrook, Thomas Kretschmann and Shaunette Renée Wilson.
