Harrison Ford Is Out For Two Months

The headline makes it sound like this is an injury report for a pro team, but instead, it is a movie. A really big movie and Harrison Ford is not going to be shooting Star wars for the next two months after injuring himself on set last week. All manner of injury has been speculated, but apparently the Millennium Falcon door slammed down on the ankle of Ford which crushed it. Even though he will miss such a lengthy amount of time, the production schedule shouldn't be affected and nothing is going to change the release date of December 18, 2015. Yep, that is still 18 months away. By the time they are promoting the movie, they will have forgotten everything about what happened. Except for Harrison and the ankle. I'm pretty sure he will remember that.

What an old pic

Riven said...

...As will the set crew that put the Falcon together.

What about the groin injury? That can't be fun!

Renoblondee said...

Ouch! Sounds painful.

Cocoa said...

The Millenium Falcon was always a falling-apart bucket of bolts.

Can't Chewie carry him around like Hodor and Bran?

Harrison is a bit too old to be trying to reprise this role in my opinion. who the hell decided to wait so long to make this movie?

TalksTooMuch said...

Sounds like he'll be spanking from a chair for awhile.

That image made me do a coffee spit take. Nice one Wiglet.

Violet said...

Poor Steve.

Kristin (Wiglet) said...

It should be concerning that his ass is out for two months and it affects nothing.

Ray Nicolet said...

Hodor!

AJ said...

I read on the DM that part of the reason this will not effect filming is that they will just film from the waist up. Problem solved.

Kristin (Wiglet) said...

They should just film a bag of potatoes on a barstool. Same thing.

Riven said...

This movie doesn't have Darth Revan and therefore is of no use to me.

(She said for the 5th time. Blogger can suck my dick right now.)

that had to hurt

funny Wiglet

Tigercat said...

@cocoa Good one!

D Brown said...

They should just take the Princess' hair buns, strap them to his ankle to support it and resume shooting. That is the problem with sci-fi movies, they overlook the low tech fixes!

Basil said...

I was under the impression that the old guard (Leia, Luke, Han etc) were fairly small roles, so I doubt this would affect shooting or not. BTW, just a guess and not a spoiler, but they probably WILL bring Darth Vadar back. In the books, Palpatine was brought back as a clone, so they could do the same for Vadar.

Best headline I saw on this story was over on D Listed- "Pee-Paw Down", lol hope he gets well soon.

OMG...that title scared the hell out of me. For a minute there I thought Harrison Ford was going to be gay for two months. I've always had a thing for that man.

Sugar said...

A spokesman for the Thames Valley Police, who responded to the call about Ford's injury and spoke to the Mirror about it, interpreted the story slightly differently, it was reported as: "71-year-old man being injured by a garage door."

Classic!

Sherry said...

AuntLicky made me laugh as did Wiglet!!

punningtons said...

Ha!

Jason Blue Eyes said...

Kristen, he busted up his back pretty bad during filming of Temple Of Doom and he was out for six weeks then too. They used stuntmen in his place. Po' Harrison. He is not going to enjoy talking about this when he has to promote this thing next December.

kit said...

Gives him more reason to continue to slag off on the franchise that helped make him. :P

I'm starting to think Enty is not of North American extraction, and Google Translate is not her friend.

MadLyb said...

His employers failed him. He never should have been in a situation where there was even the possibility of his being injured. He's a national treasure. Honestly, the director should be fired.

Malibu Borebee said...

He's always done a lot of his own stunts. He used to say "That's just physical acting." They haven't said what he was doing, if it was an action scene or if he was just walking through or near the door and it fell on him.

Trashaddict said...

If it was an Aluminum Falcon it wouldn't have been so heavy, you could recycle it at the end of filming, too. Nyuck, nyuck.....

IWish said...

Nice!

Tore a ligament in his knee while filming the forest chase scenes in The Fugitive (1993), in which he took the lead role after Alec Baldwin backed out (as had happened with Patriot Games (1992)). Later in the film he can be seen obviously limping. (imdb.com)

If I recall, the injury happened during shooting of the scene when the train plows into the prison transport bus. The dude gets pretty physical in a bunch of his movies.

Lula Surber said...

I meant that I had heard it was during the train meets bus sequence.
