USA TODAY - Hot news for Han Solo fans!
Latino Review reporter Umberto "El Mayimbe" Gonzalez appeared on Fox News Latino today to break the news that Harrison Ford will definitely be back to reprise the role in Star Wars VII, slated for 2015.
Rumors have been swirling since November, but Gonzalez is the first to claim he has confirmation.
"I found out yesterday. I did my due diligence, like I do with everything. Triple checked. Legitimate sources...His deal is done," Gonzalez said.
Ford and Lucasfilm have not yet confirmed anything, beyond that J.J. Abrams will direct.
Although Ford said in an ABC interview in 2010 that he thought Solo "should have died in the last" Star Wars film, Entertainment Weekly reported in November that Ford was interesting in playing the role once more.
The Latino Review has a strong reputation for breaking film news, notes Total Film.com, so it looks like we can all start debating whether Ford, 70, should return.
