Mark Hamill Confirms He Is In ‘Star Wars’ Talks
During a recent episode of Entertainment Tonight Mark Hamill confirmed that he is in talks to reprise his role of Luke Skywalker in Star Wars episode VII.
“They’re talking to us,” Hamill said. “George wanted to know whether we’d be interested. He did say that if we didn’t want to do it, they wouldn’t cast another actor in our parts – they would write us out.”
“We’re in the stage where they want us to go in and meet with Michael Arndt, who is the writer, and Kathleen Kennedy, who is going to run Lucasfilm. Both have had meetings set that were postponed – on their end, not mine. They’re more busy than I am.
“I’m assuming, because I haven’t talked to the writers, that these movies would be about our offspring – like my character would be sort of in the Obi-Wan range, an influential character.”
JJ Abrams will direct Star Wars: Episode VII, which is tentatively set for a 2015 release.
