More pictures have surfaced from the set of Indiana Jones 5 in Sicily, and this time they show leading man Harrison Ford together with co-lead Phoebe Waller-Bridge for the first time.

The pair were busy shooting a scene together in San Vito Lo Capo, Sicily, on Wednesday.

While Harrison, 79, wore his classic brown leather jacket, beige shirt and grey trousers, 36-year-old Phoebe looked to be rocking a similar aesthetic with a white shirt and beige trousers, which were tucked into calf-length lace-up boots.

With a large number of masked-up crew present, the actors performed for the cameras, with one shot showing them both dishevelled and dirty, sitting on the rocky ground with what looked to be some sort of parachute backpack strapped to Han Solo star Harrison.

Indy’s iconic brown fedora could also be seen lying between Phoebe’s feet.

In another picture from the same scene, Phoebe is seen leaning over to talk to Harrison’s Dr Jones, with one hand tenderly placed on his face.

No details have yet been released for the Fleabag star’s character and her relationship to Indiana Jones, nor for Mads Mikkelsen’s role, with the Danish actor also spotted on set in Sicily just last week.

Again, the only details revealed by those photos was Mads’ costume of black trousers, grey blazar, dark grey tie and white shirt, with a matching grey fedora.

However, Phoebe is reportedly being lined up to replace Harrison in the much-loved Indiana Jones franchise, as a source told the Mail on Sunday that producer Kathleen Kennedy wants to make ‘big, bold changes’ to the franchise.

They added: ‘It would be a huge statement, and a great role for Phoebe.’

The busy hive of activity on Indiana Jones 5’s Italian set comes just over a month after a ten-week break while Harrison recovered from a shoulder injury.

Filming work picked up pace again with the star in Buckinghamshire in September, after he spent the summer recuperating in London, having been spotted riding his bicycle around the city as well as shopping in Waitrose and Selfridges.

A source told The Sun at the time: ‘Everyone’s relieved to see him back and fighting fit. It’s been a long 10-week wait for him and the crew.

‘Filming has been held up but hopefully now it can get back on track.’

As well as Sicily, Indiana Jones 5 has so far shot in London, Glasgow and North Yorkshire, following a run of delays due to the ongoing coronavirus pandemic, which shut down the film industry for several months from March 2020. 

Indiana Jones 5 is currently scheduled for release on July 29, 2022.
