Harrison Ford Heads Back To Work As Production Resumes On 'Star Wars Episode VII'

August 29th, 2014 4:21pm EDT
Harrison Ford
Harrison Ford returned to work on Star Wars Episode VII this week after recovering from a broken leg he suffered on the set of the film back in June.

The actor, 72, was involved in an on-set accident involving legendary space cruiser the Millennium Falcon, when part of the ship fell on his leg and crushed it.

Initially believed to be a badly broken ankle, Ford's injury actually turned out to be a broken leg, which required surgery and rehab to fix.

Production on the highly anticipated movie came to a halt because of the star's injury, and filming finally resumed earlier this week, accord...

4 Reasons Why 'Star Wars: Episode VII' Will Be Awesome
When Disney bought out Lucasfilm in 2012 and gained the rights to Star Wars, pretty much no one saw it coming. One second fans of the franchise were lamenting the handling of the prequel trilogy, while the next the sheer prospect of a sequel trilogy -and the endless possibilities that go with it- were utterly tantalising.

Though the plot of Star Wars Episode 7 is unknown, filming is currently under way, with Disney viewing a December 18th 2015 release date. But after being stung by Jar Jar Binks, interplanetary politics between Naboo and the Trade Federation, Anakin Skywalker and an overu...

Disney will close down production on "Star Wars: Episode VII" next month for a couple of weeks while Harrison Ford continues to recover from an ankle injury he sustained on set.

The actor, 71, broke his leg in early June after a piece of the spacecraft Millenium Falcon fell on him at Pinewood Studios in the United Kingdom. Ford, who is reprising his role as Han Solo, had surgery, and less than three weeks after the incident was spotted hobbling around with a crutch.

Filming has since continued; however, movie executives have revealed that they will shut down production for two weeks in Au...

Tom Cruise Will Not Be Starring In 'Star Wars'
If you were hoping to see Tom Cruise in the upcoming "Star Wars" movies, then we are sad to say that you are out of luck. While Cruise is a fan of action flicks, the rumor of his appearance in "Star Wars: Episode VII" is simply not true.

The rumors of Cruise's involvement in the "Star Wars" franchise began with an article featured in "The Sun". The reports stated that Cruise spoke with producer J.J. Abrams to discuss a possible role in the movie franchise. It was unclear what role Cruise was allegedly auditioning for, likely because the rumors were false.

Harrison Ford will have to sit out of filming of Star Wars: Episode VII for up to eight weeks following an injury he sustained on set last week.

The 14 Most Ridiculous & Iconic Death Scenes In Hollywood

Hollywood movies are full of extravagance - fast cars, beautiful women, international men of mystery, evil villians and giant, global conspiracies. It's also full of elaborate endings, many of which ultimately culminate in at least one death. The problem is, in that quest for a real show-stopper, some of these deaths cross the line from 'iconic' to ... well, 'ridiculous.' Here, we will pay homage to the Hollywood deaths that have gone down in history as iconic, as well as dissect what ones ultimately went too far.

Robert De Niro, Sidney Poitier, Brad Pitt, and Kerry Washington are among the Hollywood stars set to present awards to their colleagues this Sunday at the Academy Awards.

While we don't know which awards they will be presenting, we can make some educated guesses. It stands to reason that Daniel Day-Lewis will be presenting the Best Actor award, since he won it last year. The same logic points to Anne Hathaway and Jennifer Lawrence presenting Best Supporting Actress and Best Actress, respectively.

The Oscar producers have hinted at a "hero theme" this year. Neil Meron told EW, "... we have...

'Ender's Game' Review: Asa Butterfield Holds His Own Against Harrison Ford

'Ender's Game'
The film 'Ender's Game' was a pleasant surprise since I never read the book (written by Orson Scott Card). That might have something to do with the fact that I'm not a 12 year old teenage boy or girl. Apparently the book and its sequels sold zillions of copies.

For those of you who don't know what 'Ender's Game is about, here you go. There are these super nasty aliens, known as the Formics that have attacked Earth - I'd probably be nasty as well if I looked like them.

Harrison Ford: I'd Play Indiana Jones Again, Not Sure About Han Solo

Harrison Ford would happily play Indiana Jones again - but isn't as quick to jump on a possible role as an older Han Solo.

While talking to Graham Norton to promote his latest movie, Ender's Game, Ford said he'd play the adventuring archaeologist again "In a New York minute, yes."

He said of his age, "I don't think there is any barrier to Indiana Jones being an old fart. I'm old enough that we don't need (Sean) Connery any more - I'm old enough to play my own father!"

However, the actor would probably prefer a stunt double do the heavy lifting, explaining, "I used to enjoy physical actin...

Harrison Ford has publicly voiced his opinions about the outspoken conservative stance of the author behind Ford's upcoming movie, Ender's Game.

Orson Scott Card, writer of the 1985 sci-fi graphic novel, has been a very active proponent of the board of the National Organization for Marriage; an organization which openly opposes same sex marriage and unions, which he joined in 2009.

The big screen adaption of Card's sci-fi thriller has angered gay-rights activists who cry in outrage that such a radicalized author's work might have anti-gay undertones. The National Organization for Marriage...

What were you doing when you were 6 years old? In the new trailer for Ender's Game, Ender is saving the world.

Of course, in the film adaptation of the Orson Scott Card sci-fi classic, the kids are closer to 16 - we guess the production was gun-shy on the prospect of having a dramatic role in the hands of a group of 6 year-olds.

Instead, we have Asa Butterfield in the titular role (you may recognize him from Hugo), with Abigail Breslin and Hailee Steinfeld as his sister and classmate, respectively. All three of the young stars have been nominated for Academy Awards during their short care...
