The actor was pictured in Mayfair in London last Friday with his arm in a sling after reportedly suffering a minor injury while rehearsing a fight scene.

Other stars reportedly appearing in the film are Danish Hannibal actor Mads Mikkelsen and Fleabag creator Phoebe Waller-Bridge.

Ford first portrayed the globe-trotting archaeologist in the 1981 film Raiders Of The Lost Ark, directed by Steven Spielberg.

It is more than a decade since Ford appeared on screens as Indiana Jones, when he starred in The Kingdom Of The Crystal Skull, released in 2008.

Glasgow also hosted shooting of parts of World War Z, a 2013 zombie movie starring Brad Pitt.
