Actor Harrison Ford: From ‘Indiana Jones’to ‘Extraordinary Measures’

For all those who’s been wondering what became off Harrison Ford since his last release, which was the latest in the ‘Indiana Jones’ saga, here’s some news. The actor has finally managed to take some time out of his busy marital co- habitation with actor wife Calista Flockhart and is reportedly working on his new movie.

The movie is presently at an early production stage and is based on a true story of a man who puts all at stake to seek a cure for his afflicted children. The movie also stars Brendan Fraser as one of the protagonists.

Brendan plays John Crowley, a successful businessman, whose world comes crashing down after his two children are diagnosed with potentially terminal illness. Seemingly losing all hope of a possible cure for his children once doctors throw their hands up, the desperate father turns to a brilliant scientist, inspired after a real life figure and played by Ford, hoping for a miracle.

The movie is titled ‘Extraordinary Measures’ and will up for release n January 22, 2010.

Here’s hoping for a successful comeback for Ford.

I've always wondered if Paul Freeman unintentionally consumed a fly in this scene in Raiders of the Lost Ark?  It's the scene where Indiana Jones shouts down to Bellosh...I mean Belloq and threatens to blow up the ark.  Did a fly go in his mouth?

I remember watching this scene back in the early eighties and my ten year old mind thought he definitely had a snack while filming.  I recall talking about 'flygate' in my school playground at the time and the general consensus with my friends was that Freeman definitely had a sneaky snack.

Paul Freeman talks about the famous 'fly' scene in an interview with and settled 'flygate:'

This is a bit of a dicey question so don’t get too upset. (Laughs) A movie’s always got bloopers in it, some have a lot, and some only have three or four. And the most remarkable blooper was right before the opening of the Ark scene.…

Pinewood Studios To Expand To The Usa

BBC News have reported that Pinewood Studios are to expand to the USA.  This is great news for the famous studio that is rich in movie history.

UK film studio Pinewood Shepperton has announced plans to build its first sound stages in the United States. The Pinewood Atlanta complex will be built on 288 acres of land south of Atlanta, Georgia, as a joint venture with a US investment company. Georgia has been among the US states drawing film-making away from Hollywood with tax incentives in recent years. The deal is the latest sign of expansion at Pinewood, the home of the James Bond franchise. Earlier this month it announced a joint venture with a Chinese media group, potentially giving it access to the fast-growing Chinese market.
