Filming For Indiana Jones 5 Is Underway In The UK
Photos show Dr. Jones up against familiar foes in Indy 5…
Firstly, I have typed this before, almost word for word, but it’s true. Secondly, I can already hear the music. “Da da da dah, da da dah…”
Today, we’re seeing evidence for filming for Indiana Jones ramp up in the North Yorkshire Moors via photos featured in London’s Daily Mail.
In the pictures, a stuntman — who looks to be wearing a Harrison Ford mask (?) — rides a motorbike, not unlike what we saw Indy do in Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade. A common trope in Indiana Jones (much like Rebels/Resistance wearing Stormtrooper armor in Star Wars), Dr. Jones also looks to be wearing a Wehrmacht uniform.
Meanwhile, the same report notes that the stuntman was thrown from the bike as the stunt “went awry.” Thankfully, afterward, the stuntman looked fine.

If that is a mask, it’s a heck of a likeness.
“Fortune and glory!”
This is post-accident. The stuntman looks okay.
Hard to tell if the mask survived.
A Castle Curse?
One wonders if the Indy mask (sightlines?) might have been the culprit in the mishap. But, some of the crew may believe that the ghostly “Pink Lady” had something to do with the accident.
You see, a story out of The Sun said filming was set to begin at Bamburgh Castle in Northumberland.
Work on the movie, starring Harrison Ford, begins next week at Bamburgh Castle in Northumberland, where crew members are transfixed by the prospect of meeting the ghostly Pink Lady, who is said to patrol the corridors… Some of the film crew preparing for the shoot are already spooked out, claiming they have encountered unpleasant sensations during set visits as they plan the scenes.
An insider told Boyle:
A surprising number of the crew really believe in this stuff and it’s rattled, everyone. A number of the team are reluctant to even go into the oldest part of the castle, it’s really shaken them up.”
Moreover, and speaking of castles, the homepage for the historic site says, “Bamburgh Castle is closed until 14 June 2021 due to filming. We apologize for any inconvenience.”
Meanwhile, you recall that a European castle has already been featured in the series.
Finally, keep it here. No doubt there will be much more news coming from Europe on the trail of Indiana Jones.
