A TOP Hollywood director has been photographed in Scotland as he shoots the new Indiana Jones film.

The fifth instalment of the franchise is set in 1960s New York, but is being filmed in Glasgow city centre, which has been temporarily transformed.

American flags, stars and stripes bunting, and US-style mailboxes have been set up on streets close to George Square.

For the first time, the Indiana Jones picture is being directed by someone other than Steven Spielberg.

James Mangold – known for films including Girl, Interrupted, Walk the Line, The Wolverine and Logan – has taken the reins this time and has been spotted in Glasgow taking charge on set.

Harrison Ford, 79, will once again star in the film. The actor was pictured in Mayfair in London last Friday with his arm in a sling after reportedly suffering a minor injury while rehearsing a fight scene.

He has not yet been spotted in Glasgow, though he may have been allowed a day off for his birthday (July 13).

Other stars reportedly appearing in the film are Danish Hannibal actor Mads Mikkelsen and Fleabag creator Phoebe Waller-Bridge.

Ford first portrayed the globe-trotting archaeologist in the 1981 film Raiders Of The Lost Ark, directed by Steven Spielberg.

It is more than a decade since Ford appeared on screens as Indiana Jones, when he starred in The Kingdom Of The Crystal Skull, released in 2008.

Glasgow also hosted shooting of parts of World War Z, a 2013 zombie movie starring Brad Pitt.
