According to Mirror, veteran actor Harrison Ford was at Pinewood Studios today when a hydraulic door fell down on him as he was filming Star Wars: Episode VII.  "The Han Solo actor fell to the ground in agony and after medics assessed him on the M Stage at the studios close to spaceship the Millennium Falcon, he was taken by stretcher onto a helicopter for further treatment," reveals the UK source. Ford was apparently airlifted to an Oxford hospital, where he's currently admitted. Disney also released an official statement on the mishap: "Ford sustained an ankle injury during filming today on the set of Star Wars: Episode VII. He was taken to a local hospital and is receiving care. Shooting will continue as planned while he recuperates."



Star Wars: Episode VII is being directed by J.J. Abrams from a screenplay by Lawrence Kasdan and Abrams. Kathleen Kennedy, Abrams, and Bryan Burk are producing, and John Williams returns as the composer. John Boyega, Daisy Ridley, Adam Driver, Oscar Isaac, Andy Serkis, Domhnall Gleeson, Max von Sydow, Gwendoline Christie and Lupita Nyong'o join Harrison Ford, Carrie Fisher, Mark Hamill, Anthony Daniels, Peter Mayhew and Kenny Baker, and the film opens December 18, 2015.

Escalation would be him falling down some stairs, breaking a hip, and shitting himself on the way down. Let's label this a "senior moment" of sorts for now. ;)

Looks like he's suffering from the "getting too old for this shit" syndrome.

What were they making him do? a backflip?
MercwithMouth - 6/12/2014, 11:55 AM
Love Ford, hate Star Wars... Damn you Disney!
Gandhi - 6/12/2014, 11:55 AM
Maybe Gusto is not old, he just has that Benjamin Button's syndrome. He's a kid and that explains why he likes other kids too.

Damn what the hell is JJ making him do?

As Yoda told Obi won, "they are too old to begin the training".

@ Indy

true story, he didn't even do that scene with all the bugs. He has his stunt double do it. Loved that movie. Saw it as a double feature with Star Trek: Search for Spock.
DaVinci31 - 6/12/2014, 12:19 PM
It's Indiana Jones and the Temple of Doom all over again.

Indy - 6/12/2014, 12:20 PM
