Broken tibia, fibula and medial malleolus should work out at around $50m

Pinewood Studios, UK - "At first glance it looked like a bit of attention seeking drama queenery," a Spinewood Studios gaffer said today, "considering he'd just been given the classic thespian good luck greeting of Break A Leg! by fellow actors."

The Hollywood star was rushed by air ambulance to a specialist fracture clinic after a chunk of falling Millenium Falcon flattened his ankle on the new Star Wars movie set.

Tonight Han Solo actor Harrison Ford was said to be comfortable post surgery having spoken to his LA lawyers about compensation and stuff.

An unofficial sliding scale of injury restitution payments used by the movie industry typically starts at five million dollars for a sprained index finger, rising to twenty five million for each broken bone.

That could mean Ford's broken ankle - including any metatarsal complications - could cost the movie's insurers an arm and a leg.

Studio bosses meanwhile rescheduled the week's shooting at the Hertfordshire set as emergency script writers were parachuted in to rewrite the Han Solo role to include a plaster cast on Ford's leg.

Star Wars: Psychotic Episode VII began filming in mid-May and will be the first - maybe even last! - Star Wars title released by Disney.

The funny story above is a satire or parody. It is entirely fictitious.
