While making an appearance at the Cannes Film Festival to promote “The Expendables 3,” Harrison Ford spoke briefly about being back in Star Wars and working with J.J. Abrams. Here is what Harrison said in a quote from BBC News:
Ford’s involvement in the franchise coincides with his return to the resurgent Star Wars series, which began shooting in the UK this week.
“I’m just delighted to be involved,” he said of JJ Abrams’ as yet untitled sequel. “We have a great script and a wonderful cast.
“JJ is a director at the top of his game and I’m looking forward to it,” the actor continued.
The 71-year-old would not be drawn, however, on whether his Han Solo character would return in future Star Wars movies, feigning deafness when pressed by this British reporter.
So while Harrison Ford can finally talk about being in Episode VII now, there’s still plenty of questions we can look forward to him not answering in an amusing way like he did here.
