A Disney spokesperson gave the following statement, ā€œIn 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.ā€

This is far from the first time Ford has been hurt making a film, the action star doing as many of his own stunts as possible. In fact, he suffered a serious back injury while makingĀ Indiana Jones and The Temple of Doom. Ford also suffered a serious leg injury during the production ofĀ Star Wars: The Force Awakens.

However you look at it the Indiana Jones actor seems to have a guardian angel looking over him. He has had his fair share of injuries while filming some of the most iconic action heroes of all time.

 

LoganĀ andĀ Ford v FerrariĀ director James Mangold is behind the camera forĀ Indiana Jones 5. This marks the first time Steven Spielberg is not at the helm, although he is a producer on the film, along with Kathleen Kennedy, Frank Marshall and Simon Emanuel.
