STAR WARS EPISODE VII Update: Ford Falls, Foiled by Falcon?
Cue whatever "old guy" jokes you want, but according to THR Harrison Ford has injured his ankle on the set of Episode VII and has been forced to leave in order for his injuries to be mended. They have not said what happened, but I still blame those damn Millennium Falcon hallways.

According to the official statement:

"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"

This isn't the first injury for the actor - he famously required major surgery during the Raiders shoot - but it does prove to be a bit disconcerting for the well being of this rogue pirate/smuggler-turned-General of the Rebellion-turned-whatever he's going to be in this film.

We wish Mr. Ford a speedy recovery, and hope he gets back on his feet again soon.

Get well soon Han...

Btw, isn't it funny that he spent days in The Expendables 3 set and went uninjured ?

They could write this into the story and not miss a beat. Maybe he injured it in a dramatic assasination attempt by a Sith Lord, or a Jawa bit him after a deal gone wrong. He could just lean of Chewy to walk for the rest of the film.

Laugh it up, fuzzballs.

He'll recover in 12 parsecs.

Whatever that means.
