Harrison Ford in Sicily, take for Indiana Jones

07 October 2021 10:26

The set of the fifth episode of the saga arrives in Italy: filming started on the island, between Syracuse and Ortigia

In the heavily armored sets, in addition to Ford himself, there is the female protagonist Phoebe Waller-Bridge. Ropes, very steep wooden stairs, a chase through tunnels, even in the unique scenarios of Syracuse: the archaeologist (or his double) seems to have been put to the test.

The Ear of Dionysus is transformed into a mine and the Maniace Castle has become the heart of several scenes shot between the mainland and the sea with spectacular special effects: fake explosions, smoke and gunshots. To ensure the smooth running of filming, a 35 thousand square meter sea area around the castle is prohibited to navigation. “It is an extraordinary opportunity for our territory. Both as regards the related industries, with about 800 people who benefit from services and hospitality, and then the visibility that this type of production leaves to a city cannot be quantified”, he commented the mayor Francesco Italia who went to the set.

“Indiana Jones 5” will hit theaters in July 2022, and features Mads Mikkelsen, Thomas Kretschmann, Boyd Holbrook, Shaunette Renée Wilson and Toby Jones in addition to Harrsion Ford and Phoebe Waller-Bridge.
