Harrison Ford with Calista Flockhart at the 2014 Oscars.
Hollywood leading man Harrison Ford is in hospital after being injured by a spaceship’s door on the set of Star Wars: Episode VII.
The 71-year-old Indiana Jones star was taken to hospital with an ankle injury on Thursday, after an accident on set at Pinewood studios in England.
"Harrison Ford sustained an ankle injury during filming today on the set of Star Wars: Episode VII. He was taken to a local hospital and is receiving care. Shooting will continue as planned while he recuperates," a statement from Disney said, according to the Hollywood Reporter.
The Hollywood Reporter quotes a source as saying Ford was injured by the door of the Millennium Falcon, the spaceship his character, Han Solo, pilots in the original Star Wars trilogy.
The actor was taken by helicopter to the John Radcliffe hospital in Oxford with a suspected fracture, British newspaper Daily Mirror reports.
Ford joins fellow actors Carrie Fisher, Mark Hamill, Anthony Daniels, Peter Mayhew and Kenny Baker from the original Star Wars series in reprising their roles for the J.J Abrams-directed series reboot, which will be set 30 years after the events in 1983’s Return of the Jedi.
