Star Wars Episode VII's Harrison Ford (returning to reprise his role as Han Solo) was rushed to hospital last Thursday after an ankle injury on the set of the Millennium Falcon. Now, THR have learned that the actor will be out for up to eight weeks due to the injury!
The site's source is close to production and revealed that despite the hiatus in filming, the studio still aim to stick with it's December 18th 2015 release date. The original news revealed that filming will continue as normal while Ford recovered, but it is unlikely the studio were expecting such a large gap between production. What do you think?
