CHATTANOOGA, Tenn. (AP) — Harrison Ford, the movie star whose name has become synonymous with Indiana Jones, is coming to Chattanooga to make a movie.

The Chattanooga Times Free Press is reporting that the 69-year-old actor will be in town for a role in a film about Jackie Robinson, the first African-American to play Major League Baseball.

One official told the newspaper that it would be the biggest film project ever to hit Chattanooga. The movie is expected to be shot in May, June and possibly July in Engel Stadium.

Ford became famous after playing Han Solo in the film "Star Wars." In addition to his recurring role as archaeologist Indiana Jones, Ford has starred in the movies "The Fugitive, "Air Force One" and "Blade Runner."
