• Mark Hamill confirms he is in talks for new Star Wars movie

      Mark Hamill has confirmed he is set to have talks with the team behind the new Star Wars films about reprising his role as Luke Skywalker.

      Speaking to the ET Online website, Hamill revealed he had not yet sat down with the new president of LucasFilm, Kathleen Kennedy, nor the proposed writer of Star Wars: Episode VII, Toy Story 3's Michael Arndt, but expected to do so when the pair were less busy. He did not mention whether he expected to meet the film's recently announced director, Star Trek's JJ Abrams, who was appointed by Kennedy last month following Disney's $4.05bn (2.6bn) purchase of all rights to the long-running space opera saga in October last year.
      "They're talking to us," said Hamill, who was one of the first stars of the original Star Wars trilogy to suggest he would be interested in a return. "George [Lucas] 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.

        Ok Disney Lucasfilm, your move! Don't mess this up, Luke is the man! Luke & Han back on screen? That's 2/3rds of an awesome start.

      Yeah, that's a shame, I hate that the powers that be rely on fans to carry everything, then complain the brand isn't growing enough.

      I am trying to speak slow and coherently to my voice to text and that is still faster than typing on a little screen on my phone and having to prove everything.
