‘Star Wars: Episode 7′: Harrison Ford Says “Maybe”
Oh boy, we're in for a long road to 2015. That's when we'll get 'Star Wars - Episode 7' in theaters, but from now until then we're going to be dealing with a lot of rumors about the new 'Star Wars.' Today we heard that Matthew Vaughn might be the film's director, and now we're hearing that it's possible Harrison Ford could join the new film.
This comes from Entertainment Weekly, who has a highly placed source who says "“Harrison is open to the idea of doing the movie and he’s upbeat about it, all three of them are." How much that will be worth is unknown, as it's not much of a confirmation. But it certainly will stir up rumors.
Ford would be the hardest to get of the original three stars, as Mark Hamill and Carrie Fisher are no longer A-List celebrities, and they've already expressed interest in appearing in the films. On top of which, Ford's the only cast member who could ask for a large salary for his return, and he's never been as enthusiastic as fans about the character. But, of course, we'll give you all the latest information on this as it comes in. It does make us curious if Billy Dee Williams will also be invited back.
