Harrison Ford was injured on set of “Indiana Jones, 5” requiring the actor to take a break from filming.

Director James Mangold will continue to film without Ford while he seeks treatment for his shoulder.

“In the course of rehearsing for a fight scene, Harrison Ford sustained an injury involving his shoulder,” a spokesperson from Disney said in a statement according to Variety. “Production will continue while the appropriate course of treatment is evaluated, and the filming schedule will be reconfigured as needed in the coming weeks.”

The seriousness of his injury is unknown at this time. This is not the first time Ford has hurt himself on set. He suffered a back injury on the set of “Indiana Jones and The Temple of Doom” and went through leg trauma on “Star Wars: The Force Awakens.”

Production for “Indiana Jones 5” began in the U.K. earlier this year. Details on the story line have yet to be announced, but 78-year-old Ford will be coming back as his iconic role as the archaeologist. Mads Mikkelsen and Phoebe Waller-Bridge will co-star in the latest film.

“Indiana Jones 5” has been pushed back several times and is set to debut in theaters on July 29, 2022. It will be almost 15 years after the the latest movie in 2008, “Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull,” and more than four decades after the original, 1981’s “Raiders of the Lost Ark.”

Deadline Hollywood first reported the news of Ford’s on-set injury.
