Harrison Ford has suffered an injury on the Indiana Jones 5 set.
Shooting began earlier this month on the still-untitled sequel in the United Kingdom, filming at Pinewood Studios and other locations.
“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,” Walt Disney’s released statement read.
According to Deadline, the severity of Ford’s injury remains unknown at this time, but we do know that the injury was on the seventy-eight-year-old actor’s shoulder.
Ford hasn’t had the best of luck on his sets as an actor when it comes to injuring himself…
He has quite the pattern of injuring himself on set!
In 2014, while filming as Han Solo for Star Wars: The Force Awakens, he suffered a serious injury to his leg when a hydraulic door on the Millennium Falcon set closed rather unexpectedly.
Later on in 2016, acting out his role as Rick Deckard for Blade Runner 2049, Ford accidentally landed what was meant to be a fake punch on co-star Ryan Gosling’s face, hurting his own hand in the process. Unlucky right?
“I don’t really want to give them what they want to see,” Ford told Hey U Guys.
“I want to give them something they didn’t anticipate seeing. I think they’re used to a degree of disappointment when you revisit — I mean certainly the Marvel movies have made a spectacular example of success that worked the other way around.”
“They killed it. Well, we’re not going to make another Indiana Jones unless we’re in a position to kill it. We want it to be the best. So we’ve got some scheduling issues, a few script things still to do, but we’re determined to get it right before we get it made.”
In an interview in 2020 he said that he has a “responsibility to his customers” continuing saying that “I think of the people that go to my movies as my customers than I do as fans, fans feel kind of weird to me…”
This will be Ford’s 5th and final time playing Indiana Jones – a spectacular archaeologist adventurer – so quite understandably, he wants to make it a good one.
“I’m responsible to them for the quality of service that I offer,” Ford said in an interview.
Indiana Jones 5 will be released in theaters on July 28th, 2022. If you want to have a movie marathon on the first 4 movies, an Indiana Jones Blu-ray collection is in stores now.
