Not long after Disney and Lucasfilm’s official announcement that they’re moving forward with ‘Star Wars: Episode VII,’ it was reported that Harrison Ford was open to the idea of returning as Han Solo. Today Latino Review bring word that that the deal is complete and Ford will reprise his role as the Corellian smuggler. While nothing is confirmed at this moment in time, expect more details regarding Ford’s possible involvement with ‘Star Wars: Episode VII’ shortly.
Harrison Ford will next be seen on the big screen in the Jackie Robinson biopic ‘42,’ alongside Chadwick Boseman, Nicole Beharie, Christopher Meloni, Lucas Black and Alan Tudyk. He’s also set to star in the Liam Hemsworth, Gary Oldman, Amber Heard, Josh Holloway and Richard Dreyfuss-starring thriller ‘Paranoia.’ Finally, in November he’ll be seen in ‘Ender’s Game’ with Asa Butterfield, Abigail Breslin, Viola Davis, Ben Kingsley and Hailee Steinfeld.
Bloody hell, that was quick! Closely following Bob Iger’s (Walt Disney Pictures CEO) confirmation that Disney and Lucasfilm are planning a series of stand-alone feature films in the ‘Star Wars’ universe – in addition to the post-Return of the Jedi trilogy that had already been announced, EW has reportedly learned details on two of the spin-off projects: A young Han Solo saga, focusing on the wisecracking smuggler’s origin story, and a bounty hunter adventure with Boba Fett at the center of a rogue’s gallery of galactic scum. Check out EW’s information about the two projects below.
The Han Solo story would take place in the time period between Revenge of the Sith and the first Star Wars (now known as A New Hope), so although it’s possible Harrison Ford could appear as a framing device, the movie would require a new actor for the lead — one presumably much younger than even the 35-year-old Ford when he appeared in the 1977 original.
