The production of the fifth Indiana Jones film is expected to be adjusted following the injury of star Harrison Ford on the set, according to Deadline.
Ford was hurt while rehearsing a fight scene. The exact injury isn’t known, but it is believed that it affected his shoulder. While the extent of treatment is being determined, director James Mangold is expected to shoot around him, with the filming schedule to be adjusted in the next few weeks. Production on the film began in the United Kingdom earlier this month, with Ford having been seen wearing the character’s iconic jacket and fedora.
Disney said in a statement: “In the course of rehearsing for a fight scene, Harrison Ford sustained an injury involving his shoulder. Production will continue while the appropriate course of treatment is evaluated, and the filming schedule will be reconfigured as needed in the coming weeks.”
Ford reprises his role alongside new cast members Phoebe Waller-Bridge, Mads Mikkelsen, Thomas Kretschmann, Boyd Holbrook and Shaunette Renée Wilson. Composer John Williams, who has scored every feature film in the franchise, will also return.
“Indiana Jones 5” is expected to hit cinemas July 29th, 2022.
