Indiana Jones 5: Harrison Ford Is On Board Despite Leg Injury

The Inquisitr has been reporting on all of the rumors about Indiana Jones 5, including potential A-list stars. The rumor that Bradley Cooper would join the cast of a new Indiana Jones was shot down, but Robert Pattinson is still being considered. None of this matters if Harrison Ford doesn't reprise his role as Indiana Jones himself, right?

Well, according to Enstarz, Ford is willing to take on Indiana again. Following a broken leg on the set of the new Star Wars film, Harrison Ford admits he's up for a potential Indiana Jones sequel, even after the poorly received sequel Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull. Ford claims he would be doing his own stunts to maintain authenticity, despite his age and feeling like a "battered old car."

Enstarz claimed that Harrison Ford wasn't interested in doing a seventh Star Wars movie unless he was allowed to play Indiana Jones again. A source confirmed that more Indiana Jones films are in the works, saying, "Regarding Harrison Ford, two more Indiana Jones features are in the negotiation stages as per Ford's contract clause on Star Wars, which is the primary reason he didn't 'publicly' or 'privately' commit, or so I'm told."

It seems Harrison Ford takes a lot of pride in his work in both Indiana Jones and in his personal stunt work. He made the following statement in regards to doing his own stunts:

"Although I do my own running, jumping, and falling, I always try to keep myself from being hurt. So I know what will work and what won't."
Despite his stubborn confidence in his physical ability and his Indiana Jones-like bravery, Harrison Ford wasn't so lucky on the set of Star Wars. According to Express.co.uk, Ford was spotted in a wheelchair after a prop door from the Millennium Falcon fell and broke his leg. This could keep Ford from filming Star Wars for up to eight weeks. A source told The Sun newspaper:
"Shooting is continuing, but Harrison won't be back for months... the film company is looking into extending filming well into the second half of this year to allow Ford time to get back on his feet."
But Harrison seems determined to stick with it and continue to do his own stunt work in any future Indiana Jones sequels. The Internet Movie Database still has Harrison Ford listed as a rumored star of Indiana Jones 5, but that could change at any minute. What do you think? Do you want to see Ford reprise his role as Indiana Jones? And are you ready for another Indiana Jones movie?
