Samuel L. Jackson isn't afraid of talking. And he did just that to the Calgary Sun, giving pretty specific details as to what is to go down in the next two "Star Wars" prequels. You might want to hit the back button if you don't already know what will happen....

Mace survives the mayhem that results after an assassination attempt on the life of Naboo Senator Padme Amidala (Natalie Portman).
That means Mace returns for Star Wars: Episode III in 2005.
"All the Jedi die in Episode III during the Clone Wars. I told George (Lucas) I didn't mind dying, I just didn't want to go out like some punk.
"George said that was fine and he'd see what he could do about a fitting death scene for Mace," says Jackson, who stars opposite Ben Affleck in the taut drama Changing Lanes, which opens April 12.
