Harrison Ford has claimed it is not a foregone conclusion that he will feature in the new Star Wars movie.
Ford and fellow original stars Carrie Fisher and Mark Hamill are all expected to be reprising their roles for Star Wars: Episode II, but appearing on an episode of The Graham Norton Show that airs on BBC1 tonight (October 11), Ford plays coy, telling Norton that he has “not quite made the choice”.
Director JJ Abrams is due to start shooting Star Wars: Episode VII in the UK early next year (2014) from a script by Toy Story III writer Michael Arndt. The eagerly-anticipated film remains shrouded in secrecy as no plot details are currently known and the cast has yet to be confirmed.
Atonement actress Saoirse Ronan recently told Empire that she has “gone in to read” for a role, before adding: “And so has everyone else. Anyone could get it.”
Benedict Cumberbatch, who worked with Abrams on this year’s Star Trek Into Darkness, and coincidentally appears alongside Ford on The Graham Norton Show tonight, has recently been linked to the movie. Meanwhile, an earlier report claimed that Ryan Gosling and Zac Efron are both in the running for roles.
