Harrison Ford remains positive about reunion for Star Wars: Episode VII

Another week, another story on STAR WARS: EPISODE VII-- not that I mind sharing-- it's just that the excitement level is just as high as the rumor mill. Everyone, even that bum behind the 7-11 has an opinion or idea on the thing. Which cast members are coming back? Is it already filming? What will it be about? Does Boba Fett enjoy those little pigs in a blanket when he hits parties? The answer is usually a big fat "I don't know." I'm sure someone knows something, but it's too early to do any real sharing.

That said, Harrison Ford was asked by a reporter for WGN if the old crew was getting back together. I'd show you the video, but it was on the fritz. Here's what he said:

I think its almost true. Im looking forward to it. Its not in the bag yet, but I think itll happen, and Im delighted.

Who doesn't like a little positive feedback from Ford? I'm sure this isn't the last we'll hear from him or anyone else that might possibly be involved with the movie.

What's the problem?

Hamill, Fisher and now Ford have all said they are coming back. Lucas even said they were "signed" until he stopped himself and said they were "negotiating". What's the problem? Is it taking this long for their agents to work out the best deal? Maybe. When Alec Guinness signed on to do the first movie he did so stipulating he wanted "2% of the gross royalties paid to the director, George Lucas" who received one fifth of the box office takings which meant that he himself got 0.4% of the

When Alec Guinness signed on to do the first movie he did so stipulating he wanted "2% of the gross royalties paid to the director, George Lucas" who received one fifth of the box office takings which meant that he himself got 0.4% of the box office gross which means he ultimately earned $3 million dollars from the first movie alone! I imagine Hamill, Fisher and Ford's agents are crunching the numbers and trying to decide if they should accept $10 million each up front or 1% of the grosses and whether or not they should get a piece of the DVD sales too. That could take a while.

I'm quite surprised at this seeing as he has said numerous times in the past he wouldn't return to the character. I wonder what changed his mind?

Almost every films he's done the few last years could be spelled B.O.M.B., as far as BO goes...

Hopefully, all four of them come back. And then have then as supporting background characters who guide the new future characters.

A positive Ford is a good thing

I love to see a reunion, because after all there has to be, in order to continue the saga properly. I mean this isn't typical sequel , this is classic Star Wars.!

If he's as excited about this as he was returning for Indy IV, it can't be bad, can it?!?
