Harrison Ford injured by MILLENNIUM FALCON on ‘Star Wars’ set
Here’s one way to confirm that the Millennium Falcon is going to be in S7ar Wars: Episode 7 – Don’t Call It A Comeback (But Maybe Call It A Cash Grab). The fucking Falcon dinged out Old Man Ford today while on set. More like HAN OHNOMYFUCKINGANKLE amirite? #selfhate #poortaste #inappropriateiknow
Harrison Ford was injured on the set of the next Star Wars film and is currently in the hospital receiving care, reports Variety. Ford reportedly sustained the injury while filming on Wednesday and is currently hospitalized in London — Entertainment Weekly notesthat the injury was to his ankle and wasn’t severe. The incident isn’t expected to slow the film down, however, as shooting is expected to continue while Ford recovers. That said, there’s no timetable for exactly when the 71-year-old Ford will be ready to pick up his role as Han Solo, a character expected to play a major impact in the film despite Ford’s age.
It’s not clear how Ford was injured yet, either, though Variety editor Marc Graser tweeted that he was “injured by the door of the Millennium Falcon.” Here’s hoping the iconic fighter ship doesn’t injure any other cast members as shooting continues. [The Verge]
