Less than a week ago, Mark Hamill revealed that George Lucas had informed both him and Carrie Fisher of plans for Star Wars: Episode VII. Today, EW is reporting that Harrison Ford is open to the idea of reprising his role as Han Solo.
Details at this stage are few and the outlet’s source regarding Ford is unnamed, but the 70-year-old actor is still going strong having recently starred in Cowboys & Aliens and set for upcoming appearances in Ender’s Game, 42 and Paranoia. It was also only a few years ago that Ford re-teamed with George Lucas and Steven Spielberg for Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull and rumors persist that Lucasfilm’s famous archaeologist may yet make a fifth big screen appearance.
The only solid information on Star Wars: Episode VII at this stage, however, is the plan to see it hit theaters in 2015. As always, check back for details as they become available.
