One more Solo run for Harrison
No, no, no, no! We are – because we can’t help ourselves – going to be filling this space with gossip about Star Wars for the next three bleeding years. This week’s snippet (if we have the sums right, the first of 150) concerns suggestions that Harrison Ford will return for Disney’s already much-hyped seventh episode. Entertainment Weekly has found a source “close to Ford” who claims the old geezer is prepared to reprise the role of Han Solo in the first sequel. This sage also claims to have recently rubbed up against Mark Hamill and Carrie Fisher. “Harrison is open to the idea of doing the movie and he’s upbeat about it – all three of them are,” this Deep Throat remarked. But how will Mark Hamill find the time? Telesales can be a demanding mistress.
