Lucasfilm's untitled fifth Indiana Jones movie is currently filming in the United Kingdom. However, production has reportedly been halted as main actor Harrison Ford has suffered a rough injury on set.
In a report by Deadline, reported that Harrison Ford has injured his shoulder while filming Indiana Jones 5. The report claimed that Ford suffered the injury while rehearsing a fight scene. There were no additional details surrounding the injured shoulder.
Shortly after, Disney confirmed that Ford has indeed suffered from a shoulder injury. As such, Lucasfilm will be altering their filming schedule to give the actor time to recover. Disney explained:
"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.”
For now, production on Indiana Jones 5 has been halted. However, filming will likely start back up again for low-stunt scenes and scenes where Indy is absent.
What is Indiana Jones 5 about?
Details on Lucasfilm's bupcoming fifth Indiana Jones movie are sparse. However, there are a few details that have leaked. The leaks explain that the movie will revolve around Operation Paperclip.
The real life Operation Paperclip saw the American government recruiting high-ranking Nazi scientists to assist with the Space Race. In exchange, the U.S government gave Nazis full pardons for their war crimes and new identities. Seeing as Indiana Jones is very anti-Nazi (he is a hero, after all) this should be an interesting conflict.
James Mangold's untitled Indiana Jones 5 will release on July 29th,2022.
