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

Benjamin Simon

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."
"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."
