Antonio Banderas has joined the star-studded cast of the upcoming Indiana Jones movie, it has been claimed.

The 60-year-old will be appearing opposite Harrison Ford for what is thought to be his last outing as the legendary daredevil.

Deadline states the Puss In Boots actor is among the cast involved, but it is not yet known who he will be playing in the blockbuster.

Mads Mikkelsen, Boyd Holbrook and Shaunette Renee Wilson are also diving head first into the action, while Phoebe Waller-Bridge was spotted in front of the camera in Glasgow recently.

James Mangold taking over directing duties from Steven Spielberg, who will still be serving as a producer, alongside Kathleen Kennedy, Frank Marshall and Simon Emanuel.

Last month, it was reported that filming on the movie had been pushed back after Harrison was injured in a a choreographed fight scene, in which he hurt his shoulder.

A statement released by Disney – who acquired the rights to the character in its purchase of Lucasfilm in 2012 – said: ‘In the course of rehearsing for a fight scene, Harrison Ford sustained an injury involving his shoulder.

‘Production will continue while the appropriate course of treatment is evaluated, and the filming schedule will be reconfigured as needed in the coming weeks.’

Harrison is known for doing his own stunts on set and director Steven Spielberg once confessed he was an ‘idiot’ for allowing him to take on risky scenes, such as the boulder run in Raiders of the Lost Ark.

‘It is Harrison’s last outing as Indiana and everyone thought it would be plain sailing,’ an insider said of his latest injury. ‘After the initial delays everyone was raring to go. But now Harrison is injured and it is worse than first thought.

‘The film’s bosses have come together to work out the scheduling and it’s chaos. The earliest they think they can restart the production is September.

‘It was not what anyone was expecting so to have to change everything is a huge blow. Everyone was concerned for Harrison and they are glad he is on the mend.’

Metro.co.uk has contacted Antonio’s reps for a comment.
