Indiana Jones’ lookalike takes reigns as injured Harrison Ford recovers

Indiana Jones' lookalike takes reigns as injured Harrison Ford recovers

For the man taking the reins as the whip-cracking hero is actually a stuntman. Harrison, 78, is still recovering from a shoulder injury he got last month while rehearsing a fight scene for the fifth instalment of the Indy saga.

But his stand-in turned heads when hordes of excited fans mistook him for the real deal as they gathered at the film set in the centre of Glasgow. The stuntman was not the only thing doubling up. Plot details for the new movie are a closely-guarded secret but the Scottish city was doing a very good impression of 1960s New York.

Harrison may have been up in a hotel but his co-stars were working. Fleabag actress Phoebe Waller-Bridge was in Cochrane Street. And Boyd Holbrook, of Gone Girl and Narcos fame, was also spotted on set.

Indiana Jones 5 set video ‘shows Shia LaBeouf Mutt return’ – WATCH

Indiana Jones 5 set video 'shows Shia LaBeouf Mutt return' - WATCH

The plot of Indiana Jones 5 has been shrouded in mystery since it was announced last year. Harrison Ford has been spotted filming in Glasgow over the past few months in a plethora of 1960s-styled clothes, giving fans their first taste in what the film might look like. It looked like shooting was going to stop when the 79-year-old star broke his arm earlier this year, but the latest video from Scotland shows off what could be a pivotal moment in the movie.

The video below shows Ford’s body double following a parade in Glasgow, styled to look like New York City.

The archaeologist can be seen chasing the parade on horseback – but he isn’t alone.

Before long, a motorbike follows him into the event.

The motorbike looks to be manned by a young man with dark hair and a leather jacket.

Of course, the only person in the Indiana Jones franchise who has these attributes is none other than Mutt (Shia LaBeouf).

Mutt was one of the main characters in the fourth Indy movie, Indiana Jones and the Temple of the Crystal Skull.

The young greaser was revealed to be Indiana’s long-lost son during the events of the film.

His mother, Marion Ravenwood (Karen Allen) explained that she fell pregnant after being with Indy and never got around to telling him.

What do you think? Should Indiana Jones have Mutt return to the franchise? Join the debate in the comments section here

Indiana Jones 5 has been confirmed to be the final outing for Ford as the iconic hero, so someone will most likely take over from him going forward.

With that said, Star Wars actor Phoebe Waller-Bridge has also signed on to the film, and was recently spotted on set for the movie.

On top of writing for enormous franchises such as James Bond, Waller-Bridge has made quite the name for herself as an actor.

Could she have been cast as the daughter of Indiana?

Indiana had a daughter in the 1990s TV show – The Young Indiana Jones Chronicles.

If Waller-Bridge and LaBeouf are playing the children of Indiana Jones, they could well take over as the archaeologists for the franchise.

Until the film comes out, fans will simply have to wait and see.

Indiana Jones 5 is due out on July 28, 2022.

Pirates of the Caribbean: Elizabeth Swann was inspired by iconic Indiana Jones character

Pirates of the Caribbean: Elizabeth Swann was inspired by iconic Indiana Jones character

When Pirates of the Caribbean hit cinemas in 2003 it was a smash hit. Johnny Depp’s portrayal of swashbuckler Captain Jack Sparrow became one of the most popular characters on the big screen – but he wasn’t alone. Sparrow spent most of his time on screen bouncing off of Will Turner (Orlando Bloom) and Elizabeth Swann (Keira Knightley). The latter in particular was hugely inspired by a character from the first Indiana Jones character, Marion (Karen Allen).

In particular, after Elizabeth was captured by Captain Barbossa (Geoffrey Rush) and his crew on the Black Pearl, she was forced to wear a dress.

This wedding-like dress was directly inspired by Marion’s own white dress in Raiders of the Lost Ark.

Marion was captured during the film by Major Arnold Toht (Ronald Lacey) and had to keep herself alive by doing what she was told – including wearing an overly demure white garment.

This isn’t where the similarities stop, however.

During Elizabeth’s captivity, she attempted to break free of Barbossa’s grip.

In doing so, she grabbed a butter knife and attacked the undead pirate while fleeing.

This, again, is a direct reference to Marion’s use of a butter knife to threaten her captor during the events of Raiders of the Lost Ark.

The fundamentals of Marion as a character were also more or less lifted for Elizabeth.

What do you think? Do Elizabeth Swann and Marion Ravenwood seem similar? Join the debate in the comments section here

Elizabeth had a main part in the Pirates series throughout its trilogy.

Marion, on the other hand, only appeared in Raiders of the Lost Ark and The Kingdom of the Crystal Skull.

Marion star Karen has recently teased her return to the big screen, however.

The as-of-yet unnamed Indiana Jones 5 film is due out next year, but Marion is not yet confirmed to be returning.

Karen was recently interviewed about her role in the next film, but she would not give a definitive answer.

When asked, the actor responded: “Ooo you might… I don’t know… you have to… time will tell!”

The Indiana Jones films are available on Amazon Prime Video.

The Pirates of the Caribbean films are available on Disney Plus.

Indiana Jones 5 set photos reveal year of setting and plot details for Harrison Ford movie

According to The Illuminerdi, Mads Mikkelsen’s villain is a Nazi scientist who is enlisted into NASA by the US government to work on the Moon Landing initiative.

Since 2008’s Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull was set in 1957, it would indeed make sense for the fifth film to take place in 1969 around the Moon Landing.

Plus, the fourth film introduced aliens to the franchise, so it wouldn’t surprising if the UFOs are back – especially if the new movie takes Indy into Space too.

Meanwhile, previous set photos from shooting in the north of England have seen actors dressed in World War II era Nazi uniforms alongside wartime vehicles with swastikas on.

An elderly man at this point, Indy still wore his famous fedora hat, but he also had a big scar over his right eye which was covered by an eye patch.

As for how and when Indy lost his right eye in the franchise’s canon is anyone’s guess.

But since the show aired, we’ve had the 1957 set Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull, in which the archaeologist adventurer’s eye remained intact.

Just as it continues to in the set photos for Indiana Jones 5, which may take place in the late 1960s as mentioned.

Harrison Ford injures shoulder on ‘Indiana Jones 5’ set

Harrison Ford injures shoulder on ‘Indiana Jones 5’ set

WASHINGTON — Harrison Ford is taking a hiatus from filming “Indiana Jones 5” after sustaining a shoulder injury on set. The 78-year-old was hurt rehearsing a fight scene, a spokesperson for the Walt Disney Co. said Wednesday.

Production is expected to continue and the filming schedule will be reconfigured as needed while treatment options are evaluated.

Filming on the fifth installment in the series began earlier this month in the U.K. under the direction of James Mangold. The film is set to be released in July 2022.

Deadline first reported the news.

It’s not the first on-set injury for Ford. In 2014, he broke his leg on the set of “Star Wars: The Force Awakens” when he was crushed beneath a heavy door of the Millennium Falcon while filming at Pinewood Studios in London.

Indiana Jones 5: John Rhys-Davies teases Sallah return ahead of filming in Morocco? WATCH

Indiana Jones 5: John Rhys-Davies teases Sallah return ahead of filming in Morocco? WATCH

Indiana Jones 5 filming is well underway across the UK, with Harrison Ford having been spotted out and about in a number of locations. The Hollywood legend, who turns 79 next month, returns for what will be his final adventure in the Lucasfilm franchise that began 40 years ago with Raiders of the Lost Ark. With much of the plot and even cast members under wraps, fans have been wondering if John Rhys-Davies will be reprising Sallah in the new blockbuster.

John, also know for portraying Gimli in The Lord of the Rings trilogy, played Sallah the Egyptian excavator in both Raiders of the Lost Ark and Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade.

Back in 2019, Express.co.uk asked the Welsh actor if he was set to reprise the role in Indiana Jones 5.

The 77-year-old had previously turned down a chance to cameo in the final wedding scene of Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull.

While on Indy 5, he told us: “Well I keep sending signals that I’d love to be [involved] but I’m not on the mailing list at the moment.”

John added: “And I’ve got an idea that perhaps I’m not quite as politically correct enough to survive in it anymore. 

“And that’s for a number of reasons, adding to which Sallah is no longer a believable character given the history of the Arab world and the West since we did the first one.”

Well now John has featured in a new video interview to celebrate the 40th anniversary of Raiders of the Lost Ark, and fans have been wondering if the Sallah actor was in fact teasing his involvement in Indiana Jones 5.

Speaking with Adventurer’s Summit, the 77-year-old coyly said: “And Indy 5 is brewing I hear…hmmm…[looks directly at the camera]…HMMMMM…”

As for why Morocco’s significant, it’s been rumoured that Indiana Jones 5 will shoot in the North African country later this year.

In fact, in the last 24 hours, Morocco World News has reported this as allegedly announced by the Moroccan cinematographic centre (CCM)

According to the outlet, the CCM noted that filming will take place in Fez and Oujda later this summer.

And a statement noted: “The success of Morocco and its attractiveness as that large filming space are due, on the one hand, to the multiple decorations offered by our country, in its exceptional light, the experience and the qualification of its technical teams, and, on the other hand, the measures taken since 2017 by the Moroccan cinematic center as well as the benefits granted to foreign producers.”

According to producer Steven Spielberg, Indiana Jones 5 will be set in the 1960s, following the 1930s and 1950s settings of the previous outing.

Ford is joined in the cast by Phoebe Waller-Bridge, Mads Mikkelsen, Toby Jones and more.

While Logan director James Mangold is helming the movie that looks set to have flashbacks and digital de-ageing of its star for World War II scenes.

Indiana Jones 5 will be released in cinemas on July 28, 2022.

Indiana Jones 5 director blasts backlash at Harrison Ford's age and denies rumoured title

Indiana Jones 5 director blasts backlash at Harrison Ford's age and denies rumoured title

Indiana Jones 5’s production is now well underway, shooting in the north of England. Harrison Ford, who turns 79 next month, returns as his archaeologist for a final outing in the franchise. However, there has already been criticism of the movie, which follows Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull – a sequel that some fans think went too far by nuking a fridge and introducing aliens.

Over the weekend, Salty Nerd Podcast’s Matthew Kadish went viral with his criticisms of Indiana Jones 5.

He tweeted: “To anyone thinking #IndianaJones5 might be good, just let me point out…

“1. Steven Spielberg is not directing. 2. Kathleen Kennedy is producing.

“3. Harrison Ford is 78 years old. 4. It’s written by Jonathan Kasdan, who wrote SOLO.”

After receiving support from a fan, Mangold replied: “I don’t mind people griping & prognosticating.

“But, on my watch, false info, agism & snark from so-called ‘journalists’ is gonna be confronted directly & forcefully.

“IMO, these click baiters like to dish it out, but like nightcrawlers, can’t stand the light.”

However, the original critic chimed in again saying how Ford will always be Indy, but argued that since he’s pushing 80, he might not still be believable as the character if doing “crazy action scenes.”

Mangold hit back: “Have you read the script, Matt? Clearly not cause you don’t even know who wrote it.

“So why don’t take a rest on my show till there’s a trailer or a title or something for you to be upset about. For all you know, I could be addressing all your worries.”

While Kadish replied: “Sir, I would love it if you proved me wrong and made a great Indiana Jones movie.

“I’ve been an Indy fan since I was a kid and its one of my all-time favorite franchises. But it’s hard to get excited over what I’m seeing.”

Mangold added: “I’m sorry you are finding it hard to get excited about the film I am making, Matt.

“Considering you don’t know the story, the script, the title, only some of the cast, nor have you seen images, if I were you, I would spend my time flipping hot takes about something that exists.”

As for the film’s title, a fan asked Mangold a few days before if it was the rumoured Indiana Jones and the Empire of Evil. However the director simply replied: “FALSE! Title will come later.”

Indiana Jones 5 is set for release in cinemas on July 28, 2022.

Indiana Jones: 'Indy was NOT a paedophile' says Marion star Karen Allen

Indiana Jones: 'Indy was NOT a paedophile' says Marion star Karen Allen

When Marion was introduced in the first Indiana Jones movie, The Raiders of the Lost Ark, she was already quite upset with the titular hero. During the pair’s first scene it became quite obvious that she had an expansive history with Harrison Ford‘s character, and revealed through their conversation at her bar that they had been in a relationship in the past. This was a little controversial considering she was the daughter of Indy’s teacher and she was far younger than him. During the passionate scene, Marion even yells: “I was a child!”

Marion star Karen recently gave her opinion on the scene.

Speaking to Uproxx she agreed there were some “sinister undertones” during that moment.

The actor said: “Yeah, I guess you could say that. I think I say [Marion] was 16. I don’t know.

“That’s always what I imagined is she was 16, he was 26. And he was her father’s student. And it’s left very mysterious.”

Later in the interview, Karen added: “Yes. I don’t think of him as a paedophile. That’s the direction some of these people are going.”

She then continued by elaborating on the relationship between the two characters, saying: “We don’t even know what it is.

“I mean, they could have kissed a few times, and she was just completely bowled over, and he could have just not wanted to get involved with someone so young. And maybe my father would have been furious at him.

“I mean, what’s great about it is we don’t know what the circumstances are. So she obviously cared deeply for him. He may have cared for her, too. But, in the end, decided it was a dangerous situation and he didn’t want to be involved.”

Despite these comments, Karen added: “I mean, I guess, when something is as vague as that, you can colour it any way you want to colour it.

“I’ve tended to colour it, sort of, that it was quite innocent. When [Marion] says: ‘It was wrong and you knew it.’ I mean, I think maybe he led her on in some way.

“But when she says she was a child, I think she meant she was 16. Something like that.”

The relationship between the two ended well, however, considering they got married in the final moments of the fourth Indiana Jones movie, The Kingdom of the Crystal Skull.

Karen is also rumoured to be returning to the big screen in the upcoming fifth Indy movie, which is due out next year.

The movie is going to wrap up the hero’s story, as it is Ford’s final outing as the whipcracking rogue.

He has his work cut out for him though. Indy is going up against Marvel and James Bond actor Mads Mikkelsen in the film, who is playing the antagonist of the picture.

Mads recently spoke out about joining the legendary franchise and reading the script for the upcoming movie.

Mads said: “I’m very, very excited about it… I rewatched Raiders of the Lost Ark the other day, it is so well-done and so charming, and it’s such great storytelling.

“So yes it’s a great honour to be part of that franchise that I grew up with.

“I’m in a lucky position where they let me read the script before. And yes, it was everything I wished it to be, so that was just great.”

Indiana Jones 5 is due out on July 28, 2022.

Indiana Jones 5 set photos tease time travel plot for Harrison Ford after statue spotted?

Some 13 years after the release of the last outing and Indiana Jones 5 has begun shooting in the north of England. Harrison Ford, who turns 79 next month, was spotted back in his iconic costume for the Lucasfilm blockbuster that co-stars Mads Mikkelsen. The final film in the franchise’s title remains under wraps, although Steven Spielberg – who has stepped back from directing to produce – has previously confirmed the action takes place in the 1960s.

This would make a lot of sense since 2008’s Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull took place in 1957.

Set photos from the fifth movie have been popping up all over the internet, including Nazi vehicles that could imply a flashback to World War II.

After all, a stuntman was spotted wearing a mask of what appeared to be a younger Harrison Ford.

While another snap included a train with a swastika on it, which had a potentially very interesting statue pictured nearby.

IJ Adventure Outpost, who posted one of the earliest set photos of Ford back in his Indy costume, also comment on that statue prop.

The sculpture included the head of a man with curly hair, a beard and a moustache.

The Twitter account wrote: “On first picture left up is in the wood construct a statue that looks like Chronos…. Story revealed?”

According to Greek mythology, Chronos is the personification of time and also the father of Zeus.

Even if that sounds too outlandish, we wouldn’t be surprised if there’s something to do with controlling time involved in the plot, especially if that statue is indeed Chronos.

Heck, if the Moon Landing’s involved maybe those aliens from Kingdom of the Crystal Skull are back?

Indiana Jones 5 will be directed by Logan’s James Mangold, while John Williams returns to compose the film’s score.

Additionally, Phoebe-Waller Bridge will co-star opposite Ford in an unknown role.

Back in 2019, Express.co.uk asked John Rhy-Davies, who played Sallah in the first and third movies, if he will feature in Indiana Jones 5.

After admitting he turned down a cameo in the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull wedding scene, the actor said: “Well I keep sending signals that I’d love to be [involved in Indiana Jones 5] but I’m not on the mailing list at the moment. And I’ve got an idea that perhaps I’m not quite as politically correct enough to survive in it anymore. 

“And that’s for a number of reasons, adding to which Sallah is no longer a believable character given the history of the Arab world and the West since we did the first one.”

Indiana Jones 5 hits cinemas on July 28, 2022.
