Harrison Ford Out Of STAR WARS EPISODE VII Filming For 8 Weeks!

Harrison Ford Out Of STAR WARS EPISODE VII Filming For 8 Weeks!

After last week's dramatic injury on the set of Star Wars Episode VII, fans were left in the dark on just how bad Harrison Ford's ankle injuries were, but it doesn't look good for the Blade Runner star as he will be unable to film for 8 weeks!

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? Sign off your thoughts on the matter below!

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.

I'm not surprised that they're going to continue with filming. It's not like Ford was going to be in every scene in the movie.

Hopefully he recovers soon, and this doesn't have a permanent effect on him.

Hey, look at the bright side, the original had a lot of problems filming too--maybe a trial by fire for Abrams.

@ McGee, you know Gusto was a war vet? He killed 50 tea drinking bastards back in the American Revolution.
ComicsBornAndBred - 6/16/2014, 10:31 AM
Damn that sucks!! Movie may be pushed back
mcminnjb1990 - 6/16/2014, 10:34 AM
this sucks but still they can film a lot more without him I'm sure
ruadh - 6/16/2014, 10:35 AM
He did this on purpose, that bastid!!!
shabat - 6/16/2014, 10:46 AM

My God that is funny!
shabat - 6/16/2014, 10:47 AM
For some reason, I have never been into these movies. These and Star Trek. Just not my cup of tea. That being said, I saw Star Trek into Darkness recently, and there's a reason I am not into these movies. Did that movie suck or is that just me?
MrBlackJack - 6/16/2014, 10:49 AM
Damn, you're really putting the work in today Dev!
charlie2094 - 6/16/2014, 10:50 AM
Sucks :/ Hopefully they can just shake the filming around a bit and not too much time will be lost, really don't want the film to be delayed at all
MrBlackJack - 6/16/2014, 10:50 AM
As a reward, I present to you a WTF fact
RetroFit - 6/16/2014, 10:51 AM
Some lazy construction worker probably got fired for that.
JorL5150 - 6/16/2014, 11:03 AM
When I get back to the office I am slamming this place with boob pics

Take it to the bank!
MrChuff - 6/16/2014, 11:03 AM
No way...a negative comment from Grif.
Scorpion8125 - 6/16/2014, 11:07 AM
It just goes to show you,

If you spend most of your time with your pants down around your ankles, something's going to get hurt.

JorL5150 - 6/16/2014, 11:09 AM
We can pick on general geezer gusto solo all day long - but he's STILL better looking tha us.
McGee - 6/16/2014, 11:25 AM
You guys go on ahead and talk your shit on Abrams.

We all know this is Obama's fault.

Indy - 6/16/2014, 11:26 AM
Do you want it sugar-coated, or right between the eyes?
looks like I'll be off the set forgoing for six to eight weeks.
Is it too late to get it sugar coated?
That was sugar-coated.
Danbojohnj - 6/16/2014, 11:27 AM
Take your time,let the guy recover,rather a great film than a compromised one.
I can wait an extra month or two.
Indy - 6/16/2014, 11:35 AM
Take it easy and get well MR. FORD!!

Pasto - 6/16/2014, 11:50 AM
Gusto must know what Harrison is going through.
Gusto - 6/16/2014, 11:53 AM
McGee...I'm gonna kill you!
TheBeard - 6/16/2014, 12:02 PM
that sucks
RichBarnes - 6/16/2014, 12:04 PM
Maybe this is a sign you shouldn't be involved anywhere near this crapfest, Harrison. Get well soon and get the hell out while you still can!
