Harrison Ford’s stuntman charges through parade on horseback as star heads to Grand Prix

Filming for Indiana Jones 5 continued in Glasgow on Sunday as Harrison Ford‘s stunt double charged through a crowded parade celebrating Apollo 11’s landing in 1969 on horseback.

Bolting down a city centre street in a grey suit, the action-packed scene saw a lookalike for 79-year-old Ford rip through a banner as cheerleaders performed in the street and crowds waving American flags looked on in surprise.

Ford himself has been forced to take a break from filming for three months as he recovers from a shoulder injury sustained on set, and appeared in high spirits while stepping out at Silverstone on Sunday ahead of the British Grand Prix.

The actor beamed from ear to ear while posing for photographs trackside, and looked typically dapper in a blue shirt teamed with sunglasses.

Chatting away to Canadian racing driver Nicholas Latifi, Ford appeared in his element while enjoying the beating British sunshine.

Back in Scotland, his stunt double was chased down a street in an action-packed scene, with one of Glasgow’s roads having been transformed to look like a street in Manhattan, New York, for the latest scenes.

Harrison’s body double was seen wearing Indiana Jones’s signature grey suit and burgundy tie while galloping down the street, with a stand-in for Boyd Holbrook hot on his heels.

Crew members were seen rearranging props in between takes, with two carrying an enormous clapper board across the street. 

Filming for the fifth and final Indiana Jones movie in the series was thought to have been pushed back by three months due to Harrison’s injuries, after being originally due for release in 2022.

It’s been a fresh blow for the movie – which sees James Mangold taking on directing duties from long-time helmer Steven Spielberg – after shooting was previously pushed back as a result of the coronavirus pandemic.

An insider told The Sun‘s Bizarre column: ‘It is Harrison’s last outing as Indiana and everyone thought it would be plain sailing.

‘After the initial delays everyone was raring to go. But now Harrison is injured and it is worse than first thought.

‘The film’s bosses have come together to work out the scheduling and it’s chaos. The earliest they think they can restart the production is September.

‘It was not what anyone was expecting so to have to change everything is a huge blow. Everyone was concerned for Harrison and they are glad he is on the mend.’
