The shoulder injury Harrison Ford suffered while rehearsing a fight scene a week ago for the forthcoming Indiana Jones 5 movie hasn’t wreaked “chaos” on the U.K. set after all, as one report claimed.
Director James Mangold tweeted this response to a concerned fan: “We’re all good. Shooting! But thanks!”
Filming on this latest installment, already delayed by the COVID-19 pandemic, hit a snag last week when the 78-year-old star reportedly injured his shoulder while rehearsing a fight scene. A Disney spokesperson told ABC News at the time that filming would continue while the appropriate course of treatment is evaluated, but the U.K. tabloid The Sun then reported Wednesday that production on the film had “ground to a halt.” Mangold’s update appears to contradict that claim.
Indiana Jones 5, which was originally slated to hit theaters July 9, was pushed back to July 29, 2022 this past April over COVID-19 concerns.
The as-yet-untitled fifth Indy adventure also stars Mads Mikkelsen, Phoebe Waller-Bridge, Shaunette Renée Wilson and Mangold’s Logan baddie, Boyd Holbrook. The film is being produced by Lucasfilm, which is owned by Disney, parent company of ABC News.
