New photos from the set of Indiana Jones 5 give us new looks at Harrison Ford and our first glimpse at Mads Mikkelsen.
Production on the highly-anticipated Indiana Jones 5 continued on the streets of Cefalu in Sicily. Notably, Harrison Ford made his triumphant return to set following a shoulder injury he had in June. New set photos from the film, courtesy of Daily Mail UK give us a new look at the beloved actor donning his iconic outfit as well as our first look at the character played by Mads Mikkelsen.
No stranger to enduring through injuries on set, Harrison Ford previously injured his ankle while filming Star Wars: The Force Awakens. His return to set in Sicily marks his first time filming new scenes for Indiana Jones 5 in roughly three months, showcasing that he has recovered from his shoulder injury and is ready to continue shooting the newest adventure for one of the most-iconic characters in cinematic history.
Plot details for Indiana Jones 5 remain a secret, but the James Mangold-directed film is shaping up to be an epic new adventure for Dr. Jones. Set photos have given us glimpses at some of the supporting players such as Phoebe Waller-Bridge and Toby Jones, and to see Mads Mikkelsen donning a classic grey suit, tie and fedora feels just right.
Directed by James Mangold, Indiana Jones 5 stars Harrison Ford, Phoebe Waller-Bridge, Mads Mikkelsen, Thomas Kretschmann, Boyd Holbrook, Shaunette Renée Wilson, and Toby Jones.
Here is the synopsis for the previous film in the franchise, Kingdom of the Crystal Skull:
