Harrison Ford, who had been shooting for the upcoming Indiana Jones film, recently suffered an injury while on set. According to a report by The Sun, this shoulder injury has further worsened an old one he already had. While it has not yet been determined how long it will take for him to get back in shape and to filming, the makers of Indiana Jones 5 think that this could cause a month-long delay to the film’s schedule.

Harrison Ford will surely not be able to continue filming for Indiana Jones 5 for some time now, with even a possible surgery on the cards. The injury reportedly occurred while shooting a fight sequence at the Pinewood Studios. The report revealed that this time it might just be too bad and only fixable with surgery, for which the entire team has been told there might be over a month-long break from shooting. There has been no confirmation of how bad Harrison Ford’s injury exactly is, but everything is now being planned around this new unfortunate development.

Harrison Ford was filming for Indiana Jones 5 in Europe when the accident took place. Pinewood Studios in Buckinghamshire and places like Scotland, Yorkshire, and even Bamburgh make for some of the spots that the film is being shot at. This final instalment of the Indiana Jones film franchise was expected to release in July of next year. Being temporarily addressed as Indiana Jones 5 by many, there has been no official announcement regarding the actual title of this fifth film instalment of the Indiana Jones series.

A little about the Indiana Jones cast 

Directed by James Mangold, the film will feature eminent actors like Phoebe Waller-Bridge, Mads Mikkelsen, Thomas Kretschmann, Boyd Holbrook, Shaunette Renée Wilson, and Toby Jones, alongside lead actor Harrison Ford. He will be starring in his longtime titular role in the film. While Mangold has taken the reigns of the film’s direction in his hands this time, Steven Spielberg has hemmed the prior Indiana Jones films.
