Hollywood legend Harrison Ford is taking a break from filming 'Indiana Jones 5' after sustaining a shoulder injury on the set.

A spokesperson for the Walt Disney Company said the 78-year-old was hurt rehearsing a fight scene. 

The production of the film is expected to continue and the filming schedule will be reconfigured as needed while treatment options are evaluated. 

Filming on the fifth installment in the series began earlier this month in the UK under the direction of James Mangold.

The Indiana Jones 5 is set to be released in July 2022.

The on-set injure was not the first for Harrison Ford. In 2014, Ford broke his leg on the set of 'Star Wars: The Force Awakens' when he was crushed beneath a heavy door of the Millennium Falcon while filming at Pinewood Studios in London.
