The movie star has filmed the movie in London, Glasgow and North Yorkshire.

The fifth and final Indiana Jones movie was originally due for release in 2022, however that was before filming was pushed back by three months due to Harrison’s injury. 

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 because it’s Harrison’s last outing as Indiana, everybody was expecting it to be plain sailing.

They said: ‘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.’

Raiders Of The Lost Ark director Steven Spielberg famously branded himself ‘an idiot’ for allowing Harrison to do his own stunts, including one where the starring actor had to outrun a prop weighing 300 pounds.
