Are Harrison Ford and Benedict Cumberbatch Just Playing Coy About Being in Star Wars: Episode VII?
October 11, 2013
Harrison Ford and Benedict Cumberbatch, two of the rumored leads for J.J. Abrams' Star Wars: Episode VII, appeared on the BBC's "The Graham Norton Show" and were both asked point-blank about their potential involvement with the much-anticipated 2015 release. Although neither of the pair confirms that they're joining the cast, the below video non-confirmation is interesting in and of itself. Check it out in the player below!
"It's safe to say you're in it, I think, yeah," Cumberbatch tells Ford at one point, who only responds with (potentially mock) confusion.
With a script by Michael Arndt, Star Wars: Episode VII is rumored to focus on a new generation of heroes and is also rumored to feature appearances by some old favorites including, in addition to Ford, Mark Hamill and Carrie Fisher.
