Harrison Ford will take six months off from filming the new Star Wars movie in Britain to return to the US for treatment on his shattered leg, according to a report.

Harrison Ford 'faces six months of rehab'

The Indiana Jones actor was first thought to have fractured his ankle during filming in England earlier this month, when his foot was crushed by the door of a spacecraft prop.

However, his injury turned out to be a broken leg, with reports suggesting he would be out of action for up to eight weeks.

It has now emerged that he will not be able to return to film Star Wars: Episode VII for six months as he needs rehab treatment for his left limb, which was fixed with a number of metal plates during surgery this week.

A source tells The Sun newspaper: "Shooting is continuing, but Harrison won't be back for months... the film company is looking into extending filming well into the second half of this year to allow Ford time to get back on his feet."

Ford is still receiving treatment at a hospital in England but will fly back to Los Angeles with his actress wife Calista Flockhart to work with a physiotherapist, according to editors at the publication.
