As long as he gets to shoot first? Yes.
 
2012-11-09 01:11:55 PM
So the guy who didn't even want to do RotJ (wanted Han to stay frozen), and then wanted Han to die at the end of RotJ, now wants to do the sequels?


"You're way too farking old to be doing this."

"I know."
 
2012-11-09 01:27:17 PM
Yes. I want the original actors to play their rolls, interspersed with new characters.

An older, wiser Luke, Leia and Han would be a good thing.

Nathan Fillion as Han Solo. He's been channelling Harrison Ford for a decade now anyways.

I'm assuming that the film will be 20 or more years in the future so older people will work. Digital imaging will be able to make them young ( kinda like a better version of Jeff Bridges in Tron:Legacy) for flashbacks or necessary story elements that weren't highlighted in the original movies.
 
2012-11-09 03:20:51 PM
Assuming the character's in either way, I'd rather have Ford over any other actor in the world. Even in a Crystal Skull desperation play from him.

Says you! I just think its a pity that John Hughes is Dead. It could be a cutting edge romantic Dramady concerning Lia and Solos teenaged kids!

they could have Jar Jar holding up a boom box defiantly at some point.

Mesa day startin pretty okee-day with a brisky morning munchy and ahh newsa Han Solo returning, then BOOM! Gettin very scared and grabbin that Jedi and POW! Mesa here! Mesa gettin' very very scared!

He could play Han's estranged offspring.

They could digitize Mark Harmon younger and leave Harrison Ford as is to show how the Force™ keeps you youthful like Yoda... and 20 years into the future, won't Luke be some serious Jedi Ninja by now? Hope he doesn't break a hip doing the wire work...
 
2012-11-09 04:14:44 PM
Set Episode 7 in the timeline of the new Fel Empire. Luke is old, has a son with a grandson on the way. He is about to pass the torch of the Jedi onto Ben Skywalker. Jaina, his niece, is the Queen of the Fel Empire as it starts up to replace the Galactic Republic. Han and Leia are settled in as only one of their children remains. The Falcon is tucked away in a Republic hangar somewhere.
 
2012-11-09 04:19:24 PM
Having the old actors back in supporting or cameo roles would be great. Hand off the heroics to a new generation.

But if they want the old characters to be central to the action, as if it picks up the story immidiately after RotJ, recast please.
 
2012-11-09 04:19:26 PM
Why not? It worked for Ewan McGregor in Episode IV.
 
2012-11-09 04:20:14 PM
There is only one person for the new Han Solo and that is Dane Cook.
 
2012-11-09 04:22:52 PM
Luke should be an anti-hero. He turned to the Dark Side because his kid died or something but the current Jedi Order is threatened by the new Sith Order that no longer have the rule of two and Luke "comes out of retirement"...Sith surround him....Luke ignites red lightsaber.

What the fark is wrong with an old Han Solo?

Old Han, Old Lando and a grey Chewbacca getting the old gang back together for one last score? Here's my money.

I'll play along...

Leia - Kristen Stewart
Luke - Shia LaBouef (Hey you can never get too much of the beef AMIRIGHT?)
Lando - Martin Lawerence

or how about the WWE Films version...

Han Solo - CM Punk
Leia - AJ
Luke - John Cena
Lando - Kofi Kingston.

My guess is that Ford will only do it if Solo and Chewie get huge, meaningful character arcs and are killed at the end of VII (a la Alec Guinness in IV) and then Fisher and Hamill will carry the series through the same happening for either Fisher or Hamill on VIII and then for the other in IX.

Whedon could definitely pull it off after his treatment of Coulson in "Avengers."

Consider that Ford and Mayhew are now 70 and 68, respectively. Both will be 79 and 77 when IX hits the screen in 2021...not to be mean, but they may not make it that long....or, like Connery, would just want to retire.

Fisher and Hamill, on the other hand, are around ten years younger and may have bit more stamina for the long haul.

With Justin Beiber as the new up-and-coming Jedi apprentice and Lady Gaga as the sassy Princess Nectara, it might just work.

/I keed about that last sentence.

Article makes a good point.
Did we want to see a 50 year old Michael Keaton in Batman Begins?

That said, I don't like any of the choices he gave. I think you'd need to go with unknowns in this case. And whomever Han Solo is has to realllly be Han Solo. Not an interpretation, you gotta nail it or else the whole thing will be off.

I'm pretty sure Ford didn't write that movie or the screenplay.

Neill Blomkamp is going to direct the next trilogy. Sharlto Copley will be the next Han Solo. Just start getting used to it.

Carrie Fisher lost the weight she put on and doesnt look as bad as she did a few years ago. Hammil... well, he was already looking pretty ragged by Jedi, he should probably stick to voice work.

It has nothing to do with the movie or screenplay (even though those sucked too). He just looks old as balls. You could see on his face that he didn't give a rat's ass about any of it. If that's the same passion he brings to another character he hasn't played in 20+ years, then no thank you.

Unlike the prequels (which, from my at-the-time somewhat privileged vantage point, I could tell were going to be a disappointment MONTHS in advance), I actually have a modicum of hope (a new hope, if you will), that these will be done right. Those Pixar mofos know how to polish a story.

Dammit. I hate being an optimistic fanboy.

How do you "fark up" something that was barely above mediocre in the first place? It's like farking up chilli dogs or mac and cheese.

Don't listen to the idiots. I know what you're saying and agree with you.
He wasn't Indiana Jones, he was just old Harrison Ford wearing the clothes. Way too crotchety and angry sounding.

I read two other articles saying that the guy who played Boba Fett would like to return, as well as Jimmy Smits to play Bail Organa. Boba returning wouldn't be a problem since in the EU he escaped from the Sarlacc but I think Organa died when his planet went boom.
