Filming for Star Wars Episode VII will take a two-week break in August.

The hiatus is to adjust the production schedule to account for Harrison Ford's injury and the recent addition of two new cast members -- Crystal Clarke and British actor Pip Anderson.

Lucasfilm president Kathleen Kennedy released a statement saying, "The Star Wars universe has always been about discovering and nurturing young talent and in casting Episode VII, we wanted to remain absolutely faithful to this tradition. We are delighted that so many traveled to see us at the open casting calls and that we have been able to make Crystal and Pip a part of the film."

Production for the latest installment should be over some time in the fall.

 

Meanwhile.....HARRISON FORD IS ADJUSTING WELL TO USING A CRUTCH

Harrison Ford's Star Wars set injury left him with a broken leg but he has reportedly been adjusting well to using a special crutch he's been fitted with called the iWalk.

A rep for the company that makes the iWalk told People, "I wish everybody was so easy. He gets it. He's mechanically inclined. He's a tough guy. He was in very good spirits -- he was alert and very sharp. He wants his independence.  When you use normal crutches, you're passive in your recovery, and you're not using your leg, so you're atrophying from day one. With this, you're not. So it's a very active way to do recovery."

It is still unclear how long the Oscar-winner will be out of commission.
