Harrison Ford Injured on the Set of Indy V

Harrison Ford Injured on the Set of Indy V

From Deadline:

 Harrison Ford hurt himself rehearsing a fight scene in Indiana Jones 5, sources tell Deadline.  The extent of his injury wasn’t immediately known…”

Yeah, I bet.

“…but it involves his shoulder. Director James Mangold will continue to shoot around him while the appropriate course of treatment is evaluated. The filming schedule will be reconfigured as needed in the coming weeks.

Ford suffered a serious injury when his leg was broken by a hydraulic door in a freak accident on the set of the Millennium Falcon spaceship while reprising Han Solo in Star Wars: The Force Awakens in June 2014 at London’s Pinewood Studios. Let’s hope this injury is, by comparison, a momentary setback for Ford, who at age 78 is in remarkable shape.”

So, this happened during rehearsal. Is anyone surprised?

Of course you aren’t. But here is a better question, when did this actually happen?

Today? Yesterday? Last Week? Or was it right before Indy V director James Mangold had a legendary meltdown on Twitter?

This last would make sense of Mangold’s Tweetstorm. The account he was screaming at was such a minor one he would have had to have been searching for things related to a Ford injury. And also he had to have had plenty of time on his hands to look for them. Because Mangold was ranting for 12 (freaking) hours!!!

Is Indy V in trouble?

Developing.

    I wonder how many Twitter peeps will cotton onto this theory and kick off another meltdown.

    I thought that the hat was handed over in the Crystal skull
    Why hasn’t Mr Ford retired?

    Indy V was in trouble when it was helmed by woke idiots.

    No one thinks another Indy movie staring Harrison Ford is a good idea. It’d be like doing a Bond movie with Zombie Sean Connery. Either go the reimage route, or let it die.

    Is it Indiana Jones and the Rainbow Skulls? I mean who watches Indiana Jones past the originals 80s movies? There was that TV series in the 90s, Young Indiana Jones, and it worked without Ford. Whatever.

    Who has a 78 year old doing anything beyond ambling along at a moderate pace? In “The League of Extraordinary Gentlemen,” it was obvious they had Connery do nothing more than deliver his lines and walk to the spot where the stuntman took over. I don’t care how great of shape a 78 year old man is in. Unless he is one of those ultra-rare examples, he is one injury or illness away from beginning the death spiral.

    This could be fixed in the first reel, reprising a scene from “Lost Ark”:

    Sullah: Indy! Holy Smokes, my good friend, you are not dead!

    Jones: No, Sullah, I’m not. Still alive and kicking. (grimace)

    Sullah: (sighs heavily) Ah, but we are not young men any more. This calls for strong backs and youthful energy … (brightens) but, our children will need our wisdom and wiles. Come, let us have coffee, and we will take counsel.
    Then … but let me tell you all about my grandchildren!

    [Sullah eloquently waves his good friend off [stage left], nattering all the while. “Kentucky Long” Jones and Mahmet eye each other, then realize in horror that Sullah is serious about sharing all their baby stories.]

    … and enter a new set of actors, reprising the roles but with new missions.

    Naah, too easy and sensible

    Marion: You’re not the man I knew ten [forty] years ago.

    Indiana: It’s not the years, honey, it’s the mileage.
