Set photos from Indiana Jones 5 show a stunt actor wearing a creepy Harrison Ford mask.
Production for James Mangold’s Indiana Jones 5 has officially kicked off in the United Kingdom and our first glimpse of Harrison Ford as Indy has been revealed… sort of. Set photos obtained by The Daily Mail show filming taking place in the middle of the night on the North Yorkshire Moors. The scene in question appears to be a motorcycle chase with Harrison Ford’s Indiana Jones at the helm. Except, it isn’t really Ford driving the motorcycle.
In actuality, a stunt actor is seen driving the motorcycle through the moors, with a life-sized face mask of Harrison Ford’s Indiana Jones on his face. Another photo shows a set worker holding the mask before the stunt actor shoots the chase scene. While it can’t be confirmed wholly, the chase scene was filmed alongside a scene showing a Nazi train. Since it’s known that Indiana Jones 5 likely takes place in the ’60s, it’s safe to call this scene a flashback. And because Ford isn’t at the helm of the motorcycle, it can be surmised that in post-production Ford’s de-aged face will be superimposed on the stunt actor, something that’s similar to what was done to Luke Skywalker in The Mandalorian.
