Star Wars: Episode VII will resume filming later this month, a source has confirmed to The Hollywood Reporter.

The production was forced to go in to a two-week hiatus earlier this month due to the film's star Harrison Ford sustaining an injury.

Ford broke his leg on the London set on June 12 and later underwent surgery.

Star Wars: Episode VII from director J.J. Abrams is shooting at Pinewood Studios and also stars Carrie Fisher, Mark Hamill, Domhnall Gleeson, Adam Driver, Oscar Isaac and Andy Serkis.

It is scheduled for a December 15, 2015 release.
