Los Angeles: Shooting of `Star Wars: Episode VII` will reportedly resume in a couple of weeks as Harrison Ford has recovered from his leg injury.

The filming of the seventh installment of the `Star Wars` franchise was stalled temporarily because of the 71-year-old actor`s injury on the set, said The Hollywood Reporter.

Director J J Abrams is apparently eager to get filming back to avoid any delay to the planned release date of December 18, 2015.

The cast, including Mark Hamill, Carrie Fisher, Oscar Isaac, Lupita Nyong`o and Christina Chong, are set to be recalled in the next week or so. It is not certain yet if Ford will be back on the set.
