Harrison Ford’s stuntman storms through parade on horseback as star heads to grand prix

Shooting for Indiana Jones 5 continued in Glasgow on Sunday, as Harrison Ford’s stunt double-throttled a packed parade honoring the 1969 landing of Apollo 11 on horseback.

As he darted down a downtown street in a gray suit, the action-packed scene saw a 79-year-old Ford lookalike tear through a banner as cheerleaders performed in the street and crowds waving American flags watched in amazement.

Ford himself has been forced to stop filming for three months as he recovers from a shoulder injury sustained on set, and he appeared in good spirits when he stepped to Silverstone for the British Grand Prix on Sunday.

The actor was beaming from ear to ear as he posed for photos along the track, looking typically smart in a blue shirt paired with sunglasses.

While chatting with Canadian driver Nicholas Latifi, Ford appeared in his element as he soaked up the beating British sun.

Back in Scotland, his stunt double was chased down a street in an action-packed scene, with one of Glasgow’s roads transformed into a Manhattan, New York street for the latest scenes.

Harrison’s body double was seen wearing Indiana Jones’ signature gray suit and burgundy tie as he galloped down the street, with a stand-in for Boyd Holbrook on his heels.

Crew members were rearranged by the props between takes, with two carrying a huge clapperboard across the street.

Shooting for the fifth and final Indiana Jones film in the series is said to have been delayed for three months due to Harrison’s injuries, after originally set to be released in 2022.

It was another blow to the film – in which James Mangold takes on the directing role of longtime director Steven Spielberg – after filming was previously rolled back due to the coronavirus pandemic.

An insider told The sunBizarre column: ‘It’s Harrison’s last appearance as Indiana and everyone thought it was going to be smooth sailing.

“After the initial delays, everyone was eager to go. But now Harrison is injured and it is worse than first thought.

“The film’s bosses have come together to work out the schedule and it’s chaos. They think they can start production again in September at the earliest.

“It wasn’t what anyone expected, so to have to change everything is a huge blow. Everyone was worried about Harrison and they’re glad he’s on the mend.”
