Matthew Vaughn In Talks To Direct STAR WARS VII With Harrison Ford Open To Return

Harrison Ford-Matthew Vaughn-SWVII

Sources told Collider that Matthew Vaughn is in talks with Lucasfilm to direct Star Wars: Episode VII and that Harrison Ford is open to the idea of reprising his role as Han Solo.

Actually, second rumor came from other source – Entertainment Weekly. Rumors can feed other rumors so feel free to take them with a grain of salt.

Vaughn has reportedly dropped out of directing the X-Men: First Class sequel, X-Men: Days Of Future Past because he has entered negotiations to direct the upcoming Star Wars movie.

Disney is to make three new Star Wars films after agreeing to a deal to buy George Lucas’ Lucasfilm Ltd who created the fictional Star Wars universe which began with the first film, Star Wars Episode IV: A New Hope, in 1977.

Episode VII will be reportedly released in 2015, the first under the Disney/Lucas banner, with Episode VIII and Episode IX to follow, so should Vaughn take on the directing role this would be on a film by film basis rather than sign up for the whole three-movie project.

Ford has said he is open to reprising his role as the Han Solo character, who he last portrayed in 1983s Star Wars Episode VI: Return of the Jedi.

Check back for more details as they become available.
