Harrison Ford Seen Wearing Sling In London
Indiana Jones looks strange in a sling, but we’re happy to see Harrison Ford walking around in the UK…
And, at the time, the 38-years-old Harrison Ford didn’t know the half of it.
Forty years later, the now 78-year-old Ford actor is still playing Indiana Jones, and, for just the latest time in his career, his body is taking the brunt of it.
Recently, Ford, who caused a stir all around the UK as he began filming the latest film in the Indiana Jones franchise, sustained an injury while rehearsing a fight scene.
A Beloved Actor
Of course, fans around the world held their collective breath at the news. Ford remains one of the top box-offices draws, even 55 years after his “big break” in 1966’s Dead Heat.
Today, July 3, People.com’s Alexia Fernández posted:
Harrison Ford is back on the mend.
On Friday, the actor, 78, was spotted taking a stroll in London’s Mayfair district with his right arm on a khaki sling after he suffered an injury while rehearsing for Indiana Jones 5.
The actor wore a navy sweater, gray pants, and wore a black face mask as he took in the views.
- It is Harrison’s last outing as Indiana and everyone thought it would be plain sailing.
- “After the initial delays, everyone was raring to go. But now Harrison is injured and it is worse than first thought.
- “The film’s bosses have come together to work out the scheduling and it’s chaos. The earliest they think they can restart the production is September.
- “It was not what anyone was expecting so to have to change everything is a huge blow. Everyone was concerned for Harrison and they are glad he is on the mend.”
Remember, the above is from an unnamed source.
Meanwhile, in a statement at the time of the injury, Disney said, “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…”
People explained that director James Mangold planned to keep shooting while his main actor recuperates.
Mangold also tweeted, “Well if it’s any relief, the story came from my co-writers and myself. No star chamber. No corporate edicts. I simply adore Indy and admire Harrison and I have been inspired by Steven Spielberg all my life.. so this project allows me a chance to collaborate with personal heroes.”
And, as far as Indy is concerned, I think Mangold’s advice is sound. Let the scenario play out. Moreover, who would EVER bet against Harrison Ford?
Not this guy.
I have a question: Does it matter to you when Indy V debuts? Should Lucasfilm push the film back to Christmas 2022? Let us know in the comments.
