Even Indiana Jones is susceptible to bumps and bruises. Star Harrison Ford sustained a shoulder injury on the set of “Indiana Jones 5,” requiring the actor to take a hiatus from filming while treatment is evaluated.
In the meantime, director James Mangold will continue to shoot without Ford.
“In the course of rehearsing for a fight scene, Harrison Ford sustained an injury involving his shoulder,” a Disney spokesperson said in a statement. “Production will continue while the appropriate course of treatment is evaluated, and the filming schedule will be reconfigured as needed in the coming weeks.”
“Indiana Jones 5” began production earlier this month in the U.K. Plot details for the sequel haven’t been announced yet, though the 78-year-old Ford is reprising his iconic role as the fedora-wearing, swashbuckling archaeologist. The latest installment will also star Phoebe Waller-Bridge and Mads Mikkelsen.
“Indiana Jones 5″ has been delayed several times and is currently set to debut in theaters on July 29, 2022. That’s almost 15 years after the most recent entry, 2008’s “Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull,” and more than four decades after 1981’s “Raiders of the Lost Ark.”
