Being an actor sometimes means taking risks and exposing yourself to injury. Harrison Ford can attest to this since at almost 80 years old, he had just been injured during the filming of “Indiana Jones 5”. Will the film be delayed?
Indiana Jones 5 : the last for the famous adventurer
13 years after a complicated Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull, a fifth episode is finally in the making. The project was in the making for a long time, stuck in an extended development that did not inspire confidence. It must be said that after the previous failure, it is better not to miss each other for what should be the very last release of the character played by Harrison Ford. Because, yes, at 78 years old, the actor cannot continue to wear this costume forever, which requires physical resources.
For the first time, it is not in front of Steven Spielberg’s camera that we will find him, the latter having given way to James Mangold. The script for this final chapter has not yet been revealed, but photos from the set have shown that it will be about those goddamn Nazis. The plot will take place a priori in the 60s and will present new characters. Phoebe Waller-Bridge, Mads Mikkelsen and Toby Jones will share the bill with Harrison Ford. The release in France is scheduled for July 27, 2022.
Harrison Ford injured himself while filming
Production has started in recent weeks and has just experienced a small hitch. Deadline teaches us that the star of the film injured his shoulder during a rehearsal of a fight scene. The American media affirms that the shots will still continue. No details are given on the severity of the injury but, in any case, the team will have to organize themselves to turn as much as possible while waiting for Harrison Ford to be on the attack. It will be understood that the producers want to do everything to avoid falling behind.
At almost 80, an injury is not surprising. The interpreter had already messed up during the production of Star Wars – The Force Awakens. Basically, he must tell himself that it is really time to leave behind all this nonsense that is no longer his age. Hoping that his efforts are worth it and that we witness a last lap at the height of the myth.
