Harrison Ford "open" to playing Han Solo again?

So says Entertainment Weekly reporter Geoff Boucher, who claims he has a source close to him saying Ford, Mark Hamill and Carrie Fisher are all "upbeat" about returning to the Star War franchise now that Disney has bought Lucasfilm and set a 2015 date for Episode VII's release.

I can understand Hamill and Fisher being up for a return trip to that galaxy far, far away. But Ford, who has never had a kind word for any of the Star Wars scripts, strikes me as someone who could care less about the franchise.

And this is an unconfirmed source coming in early on what is surely the tip of the tsunami of Star Wars rumours now that a film is in pre-production. Where gonna hear a lot more of these in the years leading up to the new film.

But . . . how cool would it be to have Ford back in saddle as Solo, if only as a guest appearance? Very fucking cool. Ditto Fisher and Hamill when you come to think of it.

I guess we'll all just have to stay tuned.

PS: Lucas won't be directing or writing any new Star Wars movies, multiple film sites have reported. So it's OK to be remotely excited for Star Wars again. Empire Online reports Matthew Vaughn, who made Layer Cake, X-Men: First Class and Kick Ass, is a front runner for the Episode VII director's chair.
