The news fuels previous rumor that Ford was open to return to the famous franchise along with Mark Hamill and Carrie Fisher.
Rumor has it, Harrison Ford is indeed going to return to "Star Wars Episode 7". Latino Review reports the actor will reprise his role as Han Solo, the wisecracking smuggler he portrayed in George Lucas' "Star Wars Episode IV: A New Hope", the first chapter in the famous franchise.
Back in November 2012, Ford was reportedly "open to the idea of doing the movie and he's upbeat about it, all three of them are." The source referred to Ford, Mark Hamill and Carrie Fisher coming back together as Solo, Luke Skywalker and Princess Leia Organa respectively.
A new trilogy taking place in the Star Wars universe to be directed by J.J. Abrams is planned to be released one after another starting from 2015. Untitled Stand-Alone Star Wars Films are rumored to be unleashed in between the trilogy.
Words are, there will be at least two spin-off projects. One focuses on the wisecracking smuggler Han Solo's origin story, and the other revolves around the bounty hunter Boba Fett at the center of a rogue's gallery of galactic scum.
