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.

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.
