Not even Indiana Jones can avoid injury.

Star of "Indiana Jones 5," Harrison Ford, 78, has an unfortunate shoulder injury that he sustained during filming of the movie.

In a statement, Disney explained that they would adjust the filming schedule as needed to allow time for Ford to heal appropriately, according to Variety.

"In the course of rehearsing for a fight scene, Harrison Ford sustained an injury involving his shoulder," a Disney spokesperson said. "Production will continue while the appropriate course of treatment is evaluated, and the filming schedule will be reconfigured as needed in the coming weeks."

Filming of the iconic 5th film in the franchise began earlier this month in the UK, Variety reports. There are no public details about the plot for the film, leaving fans of the franchise wondering how the 5th film will play out.

Originally to be directed by Steven Spielberg, the famous film director passed the reigns to James Mangold of "Ford v Ferrari" and "Logan" fame. Spielberg remains a part of the production as a producer.

Joining Ford in the cast are Phoebe Waller-Bridge and Mads Mikkelsen.

Due to the coronavirus pandemic, the filming of "Indiana Jones 5" has been delayed several times. They are on track for a July 29, 2022 premiere. The previous "Indiana Jones" installment premiered nearly 15 years ago in 2008.
