Harrison Ford Not Sure About STAR WARS VII Now: Still Loves INDIANA JONES
We had heard that Harrison Ford, Mark Hamill, and Carrie Fisher were all but officially signed on to return for J.J. Abrams and Disney‘s Star Wars: Episode VII, but now Ford is saying he’s not so sure he’ll be back. Whether it’s a negation tactic to put the actor in a better position when the contracts are drawn up or he’s really not sure he wants to pilot the Millennium Falcon again, Ford is saying he’s “not quite made the choice.“
Ford appeared on the return of Graham Norton‘s talk show to BBC One to promote Ender’s Game, but the Star Wars question popped up. In an excerpt quote from the upcoming show, said he still needed to make up his mind. His children aren’t helping much because they don’t care about Han Solo:
Frankly, my kids couldn’t give a shit. Actually they’ve never really cared because they grew up in the sausage factory and it doesn’t matter to them.
While he’s on the fence about Star Wars, he said he would jump at the chance to play Indiana Jones again. Well, Ford is 71 now, so it might not be as much jump as it is a little hop:
would do it in a New York minute, yes. I don’t think there is any barrier to Indiana Jones being an old fart. ‘I’m old enough that we don’t need (Sean) Connery any more,’ he added. ‘I’m old enough to play my own father!
Ford will appear in a small role for The Expendables 3, so his action movie days aren’t completely behind him. Ford always wanted Han Solo to die in Star Wars so it’s not a huge surprise he’s not chomping at the bit to reprise that role. Now if Abrams agreed to kill off Han in Episode VII, that might be a different story. What do you think about Ford‘s comments? Would you rather see Han Solo or Indiana Jones again?
