The Christian Science Monitor has reported about the Harrison Ford rumor on Friday, February 15. The report said there’s unofficial word that Ford has signed-on for “Star Wars: Episode 7” for the same role that established the actor as a superstar more than four decades ago.

The latest buzz is that Ford’s return in the upcoming “Star Wars” film would mean that bringing back of some of the original cast to reprise their characters is possible. This, plus the ‘death of Han Solo’ in the new movie, are mere speculations though.

Ford’s portrayal of Han Solo started in the first “Star Wars” film in 1977. He went on to play the role in its sequels such as “The Empire Strikes Back” (1980) and “Return of the Jedi” (1983), as well as “The Star Wars Holiday Special” in 1978.
