Harrison Ford On Revisiting Characters & Mending Bridges With George Lucas
We still don't know if Ford has officially signed on for Star Wars Episode VII yet, and in an interview with MTV the 70 year old actor is still keeping schtum. But he does comment on possibly returning to the role of Han Solo AND another couple of iconic characters he's played..
While we await an official announcement regarding Harrison Ford and the rest of the original Star Wars cast's return to the franchise, interviewers will continue to try to prize it out of them. Well MTV go for a slightly different approach while speaking to Ford, as Han Solo isn't the only character he is rumored to be revisiting. When asked about possible returns as not only Solo and Indiana Jones but Deckard from Ridley Scott's planned Blade Runner sequel, the actor doesn't rule anything out. "It might be nice, depending on the circumstances, to revisit any one of those characters. What interests me now is the opportunity to work at all and to work in ambitious projects. I can't think that way," said Ford. "What I'm looking for is the next opportunity, the next ambitious opportunity. It doesn't matter if it's one of those. If it's one of those, great. If it's not, that's fine too." Ford has been pretty vocal in the past about George Lucas and his inability to write convincing dialog. He's also criticized some of the decisions made with the last movie in the original Star Wars trilogy, Return Of The Jedi. So if he is indeed planning on rejoining the Lucasfilm family under Disney, is he worried about butting heads? "I might have said things in the past that were characterizations of how I felt at the time," he said. "That was then. This is now. It doesn't matter."
