Though casting for Star Wars Episode VII has not yet been made official, once piece is all but assured. Harrison Ford is coming back as Han Solo. This was first reported in February by Latino Review and Ford himself all but confirmed it on The Graham Norton Show in the UK. So while Lucasfilm and Disney have yet to comment on any of this, it seems pretty likely. Now, the latest rumor gives a bit more details on his potential return.
Apparently, Ford had quite a few stipulations that had to be met for him to return for Star Wars Episode VII. And they were. Among the rumored stipulations were assurances progress would be made on Indiana Jones 5 (an idea he’s more excited about than Star Wars) and he wanted approval on Solo’s arc in not only Episode VII, but beyond. Meaning, yes, the character should survive into following films.

Though Steven Spielberg is currently without a project, and George Lucas isn’t saddled with Star Wars pressure, there’s no new news on the Indiana Jones 5 front. Everyone still feels they’d do it, but it comes down to timing and Lucas pitching Spielberg and star Harrison Ford a stellar idea.
Ford is currently doing press for his latest film, Paranoia, and was quoted as saying he thinks it’s “perfectly appropriate” to bring the character back. Plus, he has a new idea on how Indy would win the day. Read the quote below. Read More »

Two people with very unique perspectives on this Star Wars business are producer Frank Marshall and director Joe Johnston. Marshall has worked with LucasFilm extensively in the past, producing all four Indiana Jones films (among others) and just so happens to be married to the CEO of the company, Kathleen Kennedy. Johnston is a well-known director who worked on all three films in the original Star Wars trilogy and publicly declared his desire to make a new Star Wars movie. So what’s going on with these guys in regards to Star Wars Episode VII?
After the jump, read what Marshall had to say about the news, including inside information on possible directors and what this all means for Indiana Jones 5, as well as Johnston’s response to a blog post saying he’s the best candidate to direct Star Wars Episode VII. Read More »

Cool Posts From Around the Web:
Based on reactions to the topic every time it comes up, I think a great many Steven Spielberg and Harrison Ford fans would like to pretend that Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull didn’t exist. And yet there is still the occasional expression of hope when the mooted fifth Indy film is discussed. Somehow there is optimism that a fifth film would be better than the fourth. And, sure, there’s a chance, but when the core story is in the hands of George Lucas, whose latter output has been… well, let’s generously say “spotty,” I’d say any optimism in this case is extreme.
We might finally be able to put talk of a fifth movie to bed, however, as producer Frank Marshall says that, for him at least, Crystal Skull was the end. Read More »

After seven years away from theaters, Star Wars comes back to the big screen this weekend. Of course, it’s not a new movie or even an original re-release. Instead it’s what’s generally considered one of the worst of the bunch, converted into an experience many people hate. I refer, of course, to Star Wars Episode I: The Phantom Menace in 3D and if one good thing comes of this re-release, it means George Lucas has to come out and answer questions. (Of course, he did this for Red Tails too but focused more on his upcoming career and Hollywood controversy.)
In an interview Lucas did with The Hollywood Reporter he offers what I think is the most plausible and straightforward answer he’s ever given as to why he changed the Greedo/Han Solo scene in Star Wars Episode IV: A New Hope. Read the quotes and agree or disagree after the break. Read More »
When we last left the saga of the slowly developing potential film, Indiana Jones 5, Steven Spielberg clarified that “It’s up to George.” He and George Lucas, of course, had agreed on the concept for the film but until Lucas had more story details worked out, the film can’t progress. The man with the plan was on the red carpet for his friend’s The Adventures of Tintin premiere (which, itself, is structured and feels like an Indiana Jones movie) and offered his two cents. No big surprises here, he’s basically just echoing Spielberg but you can read the quote and watch a video of Spielberg talking a bit about the film after the jump. Read More »
