So far we've heard that all of the main cast from Episode IV, V and VI would love to reprise their roles in the upcoming new trilogy. Well all of them except Billy Dee Williams. Well, finally someone remembered Han's old buddy:
So for now we know that Michael Arndt’s treatment is for all three upcoming SW film. And that it's taking place after the events of “Return of the Jedi”. It'll feature, to some extent, Luke Skywalker, Princess Leia and Harrison Ford.
Moviehole got some Lucasfilm sources that shared with them another old member of the Star Wars family that is part of Arndt's treatment:
"I know a couple of former Lucasfilm employees, both of whom know very little when it comes to the nitty gritty’s of the ‘Star Wars’ trilogy – in fact, seems nobody but the top brass are really privvy to the goods within that libretto. But I had a quick back-and-forward over email with one of them overnight who, despite having left the company a couple of months back, had heard ‘rumours’ of the project’s existence before the big announcement a couple of weeks ago.
Not surprisingly, he had nothing on the plot, main heroes or villains, director, or – sigh – Lumpy cameos. “No idea. just Luke, Leia, Han, Lando”.
Not much of a news but it's good to know that Lando is also in Arndt's treatment. Of course if the source is right. Now we wait to hear news about Chewbacca, R2D2 and C3PO. At least they looks the same.
In other news Digital Spy got a chance to talk with Tom Hiddleston (Thor, The Avenegrs) and asked him if he would be interested in a role in the new Star Wars trilogy:
"Goodness -- I hadn't thought of that! I mean, yeah, sure! I'm a huge fan -- especially of the first three, cause I grew up watching 'Star Wars' and 'The Empire Strikes Back' and 'Return of the Jedi.' So, absolutely, yeah. It would depend on the story and the character and things. Kathleen Kennedy is on of the best producers that I worked with. I'd take it very seriously if they asked me."There are no doubts that Tom is a great actor and his possible involvement with Star Wars could only do good for the franchise.
