The actor - who played hero Luke Skywalker in the original trilogy, released between 1977 and 1983 - is wary of signing up for the recently announced seventh 'Star Wars' film, as he has no idea what the story line involves.

That seems perfectly reasonable.

I read this morning that Disney will announce Matthew Vaughn as the director in the next day or two. Apparantly Jason Flyming spilled the beans on accident while being interviewed at some movie premeire, cause he was asked to be in it in some capacity. And that's why Vaughn left X-Men. Course it was Total Film so who knows if it's accurate.

As for Mark, I could see a small cameo just cause. Hard to imagine he wouldn't appear in it at all, even if it was just a brief moment.

A cameo for such a huge character in the series would be a bit disappointing and superfluous, unless it's going to be his death scene or some sort of passing of the torch.

They can work Luke in there somehow that won't be horrible, if they have excellent writing. But I don't have very high hopes for these next three films. It seems like they may be a huge, uninspired cash grab. There's a difference between 'Hey, I have a great idea for a film that may make us some money,' and 'we need to make a great idea so we can make some money!'

Wait, why did Vaughn leave X-Men? I read it was because he was working on another project ("The Secret Service"), but freaked out when he realized another studio was trying to push out a copycat movie before his, so he felt the need to focus on that movie first.

Very True, but I could also imagine why Hamill wouldn't be all on fire about getting involved. I would imagine all those years of fielding questions at cons would take their toll after a while. But I'm sure if they park a big enough dump truck out full of cash, he would return. I honestly haven't cared much for Star Wars after the prequels but I am curious to know just what Disney is going to do, based on how well they have done Marvel.

Here is the article I was talking about. Fark keeps eating the link so I will have to paste it. I really like Vaughn's work and was sad to hear he left X-Men but I can understand why he would. Star Wars will keep him rolling in money.

Here's the article I'm referring to: Link

Mark Miller specifically says he didn't leave X-Men for Star Wars.

"We had two high-end projects at the same time. We had the most ambitious 'X-Men' yet, but at the same time we had 'The Secret Service' [an adaptation of Millar's comic book, which Vaughn will direct], which we came up with ourselves. And some copycat projects were starting to get off the ground. If we didn't do it now, it would probably never get done. Matthew had a really difficult choice, and he had a lot of great ideas for 'X-Men,' but Bryan [Singer] is back in the fold, and he's brilliant."

This is like Indy and the three Planet Hollywood guys doing movies again. This shiat is like 15 years too late.

And if Bradley Cooper is casted as Luke, well just inform the secret service on my response.

They should do another Leia slavegirl scene. And re-cast Carrie Fisher for the lulz.
 
2012-11-28 05:40:38 PM
I think they should have him play an older Luke Skywalker who lives in a cave out in the desert like a hermit. He can meet a restless young kid and mentor him for the forces of good - or something along those lines. That would be a good movie.

It seems perfectly reasonable... for Harrison Ford, who no longer needs Star Wars.

What the hell is Mark Hamill so busy with other than voice work? Why WOULDN'T he do it?

They really shouldn't do the core three (Luke, Leia, Han) at any other age than that of the actors. Bringing in younger actors wouldn't be fair to the new kids, just like Brandon Routh had no chance of succeeding as Superman since he was expected by the studio to be Christopher Reeves. Just bring in Mark, Carrie, and Harrison, maybe Billy Dee also, for a while to let them pass on the torch to this new generation of heroes. Don't make the new trilogy about them (the Rebellion-era crew), let the new characters and actors forge their own legends.

To be fair, Brandon Routh had no chance of succeeding because that movie sucked ass. That's the only movie in the last decade where I actually fell asleep in the theater*

WTF?

Luke Skywalker has to rebuild the goddamned Jedi order.

If the new movies do not involve this, then I am not interested in seeing ANY of it. 

I don't really care who plays Luke.

As far as the story goes- it MUST be about the force and the new Jedi order that Luke creates.

The problem with the prequels...was everything.

Seriously, though...focus on the story and characters. Don't try to see how you can tie chewie, boba fett, vader, C-3PO, r2d2, obi wan, luke, leia, anakin, sand people, and the emperor together in one story line.

Personally, if I was writing the story:

1. Set some 20-30 years after return of the jedi. Luke Skywalker is old and teaching the newest recruits how to be jedis. While there is peace in the galaxy, he feels compelled to keep the tradition alive.

2. While the emperor is dead, his evil spirit lives on. OR...the emporer isn't the only evil psycho in the galaxy bent on finding ultimate power

3. Good battles evil in the battle of the Mcguffin...or the spirit of the emperor is hell bent on destroying the jedi for destroying his empire, or [insert your story line here].

People are going to go see the movie...just hire a decent director and screen writer and let them tell a good story...don't focus on pod races and light saber duels.

Harrison Ford NEEDS Star Wars


In my opinion, Star Wars doesn't need him. If he brings the same amount of "enthusiasm" as he did to Indiana Jones, then fark him.

Back when the original trilogy first came out, he actually cared. He ad-libbed the character because he knew who Han Solo was. Hell he didn't even want to be in RotJ because he felt Han's story should end in ESB and continuing it would do a disservice to the character.

I agree 100%. I don't think Han OR Leia should be in it. It SHOULD be the continuing story of Skywalker. The movies are the Skywalker stories (in MY opinion)

You're absolutely right, Harrison Ford is a douche. Ever see him interviewed? He seems mildly retarded (and I don't mean this in the insulting way people use the word. I mean it in the literal sense!) and he's a prick about Star Wars!

Put that crack pipe down. The reason Superman Returns was flawed for reasons other than Brandon. The script was the problem.

Under no circumstance should the originals actors be given a major role. Also George Lucas should be kept out as much as possible.

I would suggest a recreation of the opening scene from Finding Nemo: Jar Jar swimming near a sea anemone and getting shredded by some giant saber toothed fish thing.

Also, Luke could show up in holicrons being studied or found by the new Jedi order.
