Actor Harrison Ford injured his shoulder while rehearsing a fight scene for a new Indiana Jones movie, Walt Disney Co. said on June 23.
Production of the fifth Indiana Jones film will continue while “the appropriate course of treatment is evaluated” for the 78-year-old actor, Disney said in a statement.
“The filming schedule will be reconfigured as needed in the coming weeks,” the statement said. The movie’s release date has been postponed several times. Disney currently plans for it to debut in July 2022.
Ford first played Indiana Jones, the fedora-wearing archaeologist and adventurer, in 1981 in Raiders of the Lost Ark. (Reuters)
Venice festival to honor Jamie Lee Curtis with lifetime achievement award
Hollywood star Jamie Lee Curtis will receive a lifetime achievement award at the Venice International Film Festival in September, where the latest installment of her Halloween movies will screen out of competition, organizers said on June 30.
Curtis made her film debut in the first Halloween, playing babysitter Laurie Strode, who faced off against deadly serial killer Michael Myers in John Carpenter’s 1978 horror flick.
“Jamie Lee Curtis belongs to that rarefied group of Hollywood actors who best reflect the qualities that are the very soul of the global film industry and its legacy,” festival director Alberto Barbera said. (Reuters)
