Harrison Ford is to return to the U.K. later this month to resume filming “Star Wars: Episode VII” after bouncing back from a broken leg.

The “Indiana Jones” actor sustained the injury on the set of the seventh installment in the sci-fi franchise in June and film bosses altered the production schedule to give him time to recover from surgery back in his native U.S.

Filming was also suspended for two weeks this month so director J. J. Abrams could rework shooting in Ford’s absence.

Ford appeared to have made a full recovery by walking the red carpet unaided at “The Expendables 3” premiere in Los Angeles on Monday, and it is now confirmed that he will be resuming work alongside his fellow actors.

Filming on “Star Wars: Episode VII” is expected to finish in the autumn.
