That being said, Ford was MIA for a great deal of the action in ToD, and that didn't seem to harm the film. That being said, the extent of his injury back then wasn't quite as widely known as it is this time around, so suspension of disbelief may take a kicking.

To make matters worse, I just read that Spielberg's next two films are locked in...

Sadly I think Indy 5 is almost finished :sick: Ford will be hard to get insurance for when he fully heals (history of film set injuries not his fault but still becomes very costly to get insurance for) & Spielberg is clearly not thinking about Indy as Lucas is obviously not interested either so it looks like KOTCS was the true Ford Indy ending :dead:

I would not be surprised to see Ford retire for good either he must be pretty unhappy the set was not safe & has caused him so much pain/concern @ his stage of life its a bad experience even if it was an accident a $200m+ mega budget film should have higher standards in 2014 its appalling to happen to anyone let alone the megastar leading man !

The one slight glimmer of hope I can see is if Ford uses this to gain leverage on Disney by waiving the right to sue if they actively develop Indy 5 ASAP. But that would have to be a gentlemans agreement & Ford is a gentleman I am not sure many execs are nowadays its all about money sadly.

Temple of Doom was the first thing I thought of when I heard of Ford's ankle. I'm sure he's fine and will recover swiftly.

As far as Indy 5 speculation goes, I'll agree this news has probably made Disney's lawyers nervous about Star Wars 7(let alone a hypothetical Indy movie) it probably also inspired more internet "rumors" of recast Indy like that Robert Pattinson one last week, but these incidents happen all the time on sets so I wouldn't worry too much. After all, is anyone out there still talking about when Stallone sprained his back filming the Expendables?

Ford career will easily continue.

Why is there no information here about what Harrison is wearing at the hospital? Details about his pyjamas, etc.?:confused:

Now apparently his publicist has confirmed that it's not his ankle, but that he broke his left leg. Had successful surgery, and is now rehabbing. Probably broke the lower portion of the tibia and/or fibula. Honestly it's a better scenario for him than breaking ankle bones, which may well have caused him a permanent loss of movement in the ankle given his age.

foreignerfred 06-19-2014 01:25 PM

This might be too much to ask, but I just don't want Episode 7 to be altered in the slightest due to this injury.

I thought KOTCS treated Harrison like he was more incapable of action than he actually was.

I don't want Episode 7 to have to scale things back for him because of an injury.

In full health, I know Harry's still got it. If filmmakers would just believe.

...and yes, I'm aware breaking a leg is a serious injury.

IndyForever 06-19-2014 01:27 PM

Get well soon Harrison :up:

Breaking his leg though is still very serious that will take a long time until he could run again & the amount of PR Spin around this from Disney saying he broke his ankle :down: there is a huge difference between ankle vs leg. Leg is easier to set/heal but Harrison will not be running anytime soon will he & Indy does a lot of running.

Another nail in the coffin of Indy 5 its destined to never be made with Harrison unless there is a miracle or divine intervention :eek:

Harrison's supply of nails ran out a few years ago. And the divine has always been just a figment in the imagination of the hopeful.

Gonna need to find a new pet to stroke. :p

Grizzlor 06-19-2014 02:34 PM

First of all, Harrison didn't exactly do a ton of stunts in the OT either, and I wouldn't have expected this VII script to feature a ton of it either. As for Indiana Jones, I'm sorry naysayers but a broken leg is not going to stop his doing another film if he has the ambition. Not to mention that he's in great shape, and an Indy film probably wouldn't be shot anytime soon of course.

Montana Smith 06-19-2014 02:47 PM

A broken leg is the least of his worries. And it won't be his ambition but the ambition of those who'll be putting the money up for another film.

His future as Indy is even less likely under the new management which has a reputation for selling youth rather than old age.

Not shooting any time soon? Just how old can a leading man be in the action adventure genre nowadays?

Whether he's Indy, or whether he isn't, either way he'll be side-lined.

I heard Lucas took the actual tin of nails home & threw a tantrum as some random not fellow billionaires he never met or ever would/could :rolleyes: internet dudes dared to criticise him so no-one else can play with Harrison :whip: as Lucas also took ALL his toys after throwing them out of the pram at the very same random dudes who made him a billionaire :rolleyes:

Completion bond insurance will be much higher for another Indy now. That goes on the budget with Harrison attached its another minus factor (although Disney owe Ford big time for not suing them for millions).

Disney are in trouble though their Indy property is only worth something with Harrison playing the role for the whole movie like he did in KOTCS. A reboot will not fly at the box office either to justify the investment. What was the last 1930-40-50s serial that had massive global box office success (apart from the Brendan Fraser Mummy series).

Indy is Harrison its not really a franchise either its a movie series that continued over 3 decades. Complex issue(s) for Disney to resolve.

Seeing some rumors on twitter saying Ford's broken leg needs 6 months of rehab. Hope this isn't true...:(

IndyForever 06-22-2014 06:04 PM

Harrison going back to US for now.

That's rehab to be fully healed, that doesn't mean he can't stand/walk on it for the full 6 months. Obviously it would be wisest for him to take as much time off as possible.

Nice interview from Cannes. Probably can't wait to rejoin his biker gang.

Rumours are he is in most scenes in EP7 this URL gives away what exactly Han does so only look if you want to know its actually interesting & makes me wonder how they can possibly shoot the movie without Ford being present for most of it :eek:

Nope, that's not the rumour at all. Not even close. Did you read the article you posted?

It's a bit like Admiral Ackbar leading the assault on Death Star II. He did it from the comfort of his flagship.

So I expect Harrison to spend a lot of time sitting in the captain's chair gazing back in the direction of the door and mumbling angrily, "It's a trap."

And when one of the new faces wonders what is, he taps on the cast on his leg and gives Chewie an earful for not fixing it.
