Harrison Ford injured while shooting ‘Indiana Jones 5’ fight scene

A fight scene rehearsal has left Harrison Ford, 78, with an injury.

While on the set of “Indiana Jones 5,” Ford reportedly hurt his shoulder, according to Deadline. The extent of the injury is not yet known, but the shooting is reportedly set to continue coordinated around Ford’s recovery. The details of his treatment are also not yet known.

“In the course of rehearsing for a fight scene, Harrison Ford sustained an injury involving his shoulder,” Disney confirmed to Deadline in a statement. “Production will continue while the appropriate course of treatment is evaluated, and the filming schedule will be reconfigured as needed in the coming weeks.”

The treatment comes in addition to an already rigorous workout regime. To stay in shape for the current flick, Ford has been cycling 40 miles a day, walking frequently and eating plenty of supplement bars, The Mirror reported. He fits this into a packed schedule of 11-hour nighttime film shoots and just six hours for sleep.

The newest addition to the Disney franchise is set to be released on July 29, 2022. Production on it began just this month at various UK locations.

“Logan” and “Girl, Interrupted” director James Mangold is leading in place of Steven Spielberg, who is sticking to a producer role for this sequel. The same man who has worked on every one of the “Indian Jones” scores for the past four decades, John Williams, is once again serving as the composer.

This is not the first time Ford has been injured on set, and hopefully, this instance is less severe than the last: In June 2014, while shooting “Star Wars: The Force Awakens,” Ford broke his leg in an accident involving a hydraulic door and the Millennium Falcon.

Representatives for Disney and Harrison Ford did not immediately return The Post’s request for comment.
