Harrison Ford says the latest 'Indiana Jones' movie took 15 long years to make.
The 65-year-old actor - who reprises his role as Dr. Henry Jones in the forthcoming 'Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull', 19 years after the last film - revealed how he, director Steven Spielberg and writer George Lucas have been trying come up with the perfect movie since last century.
He said: "We started talking about it 15 years ago and over that period of time, three scripts have been produced. It took three of us, George, Steven and me to commit to the course and none of us was fully satisfied with what was produced and then we were all doing different things."
During the filming of the movie, Ford admits one of the stunts - which involved driving a military vehicle through a wall that was rigged with explosives - almost went very wrong.
He told Britain's The Observer magazine: "It was supposed to look like the car was causing the wall to fly through the air and that I was driving through it, but it came just a millisecond before I went through. And I looked down and right next to me on the seat there's this big-a**ed box explosives that had survived. If it had gone off, it would have caused a real injury."
