Ford's co-star, Liam Hemsworth, reveals Luketic was faced with a hairy challenge five days before the Indiana Jones icon was due to report to the set to shoot his scenes.
Hemsworth says, "(Ford) did that (shaved his head) without telling anyone. We had been shooting about two weeks and then the director was on set one day and he had a really stressed look on his face and he showed me a picture of Harrison and he had a shaved head and he was freaking out.

In an effort to keep the event unpublicised, Lopez told guests invited to her 2004 nuptials to singer Marc Anthony the event was an "afternoon party".
And the manoeuvre worked - as filmmaker Luketic, who directed Lopez in Monster-in-Law, was clueless as to the gathering's actual purpose.
He recalls, "She told me it was a barbecue because she didn't want anyone to know about it.

The big screen re-make of hit 1970s TV show Dallas is in more jeopardy after losing most of its cast and the original screenplay.
When the film was first announced stars like Jennifer Lopez, John Travolta, Luke Wilson and Shirley Maclaine were reportedly on board, but now only Travolta remains attached.
Bend It Like Beckham director Gurinder Chadha is currently due to direct Dallas after Legally Blonde director Robert Luketic dropped out over casting differences.
The script, written by Robert Harling, was rumoured to be a hard-hitting, dramatic take on the classic TV show, but it has been dumped after disappointing test screenings.
According to reports, filmmakers conducted focus groups with small audiences in the American midwest, and producers decided it needed more laughs which called for an entirely new, slapstick comedy script.
The film is now being re-written as "a show-within-a-show" comedy, which is being compared to the re-make of Bewitched starring Nicole Kidman.
One source tells New York Post's Page Six, "The script totally sucks."
Shooting was originally scheduled to start this month (NOV06), but none of the major roles, except Travolta as JR EWING, have been cast.
One insider adds, "It'll be a miracle if this film ever gets made."
Those connected with the project have been told filming won't begin until January (07) when Travolta completes shooting the big screen version of HAIRSPRAY.
The entire cast of the feature film Dallas, with the exception of John Travolta, have been sacked just one month before the movie was to begin shooting.
The big screen version of the popular 1970s TV show was set to start in November (06), but has now been put on hold as the film is reworked.
Travolta will still star as JR EWING, but cast members including Shirley Maclaine, who was cast as MISS ELLIE and Luke Wilson who was cast as BOBBY EWING are out.
Meg Ryan was in talks with filmmakers to replace Jennifer Lopez, who dropped out of the film in August (06), in the role of JR's boozy wife SUE ELLEN, but negotiations have now stopped.
Director Gurinder Chadha will make a final decision on whether or not she will stay on board to direct as soon as the new cast comes together.
Chadha, who replaced director Robert Luketic in April (06), was reportedly not happy with the prior cast.
Filmmakers now hope to make the film for substantially less than its original $65 million (GBP36 million) budget and have been approaching less well-known actors with lower salary demands.
Producers plan to recast and begin shooting as early as January (06).
The Antipodean film-maker, 31, was terrified of meeting 67-year-old Fonda, but he thought her reaction to his age was hilarious.
He recalls, "I remember sitting in the restaurant waiting for Jane Fonda.
