Though many would argue his best days, and best movies, are behind him, 70-year-old Harrison Ford isn’t quitting anytime soon. There isn’t only the possibility of seeing him return as Han Solo in Star Wars Episode VII, but there’s the ongoing rumors of another Indiana Jones flick – oh please god, no – and director Ridley Scott has a renewed interest in continuing Blade Runner. How does Ford feel about all these opportunities? He’s game, but only if they’re ambitious enough.
While on a press junket for his new film 42, MTV asked Ford about his future plans,
It might be nice, depending on the circumstances, to revisit any one of those characters. What interests me now is the opportunity to work at all and to work in ambitious projects. I can’t think that way. What I’m looking for is the next opportunity, the next ambitious opportunity. It doesn’t matter if it’s one of those. If it’s one of those, great. If it’s not, that’s fine too.
He also comments on the harsh words he’s said about George Lucas in the past,
I might have said things in the past that were characterizations of how I felt at the time. That was then. This is now. It doesn’t matter.
Hey, Harrison. Lucas isn’t in charge anymore. He can’t stop you from being in Star Wars, so go ahead, tell us how you really feel.
