Rumor from the UK gossip mag The Daily Star suggests that George Lucas asked Harrison Ford to join his wookie companion in the cockpit of the Millenium Falcon one more time. And to the tune of $47 million.
Thankfully, Harrison Ford knows when enough is enough. Even though Lucas wanted to produce a Han Solo spin-off film, Ford apparently thought the idea ridiculous and refused to be a part of the project.
Personally, the validity of this story seems pretty weak. If anything, Lucas probably asked Ford to be Han Solo, knowing he would decline. Then Lucas would follow it up with, "Well, then how about Indy?" See what I mean?
Yeah, after the Han Solo Files, Indy 4 doesn’t sound like such a bad idea, does it?
