He had conditions...
Star Wars fan site Jedi News reports that Harrison Ford is back for Star Wars: Episode VII. In addition to that, they claim that he will also be dusting off the whip to play Indiana Jones once again. A verbal agreement has been in place since before the Disney deal. Over the summer several financial agreements were reached.
Here are the points that were resolved:
- Ford wanted to see his character develop over more than just Episode VII. This happened in August and he is happy with the story.
- He wanted a commitment from Disney and Lucasfilm for Indiana Jones 5. He didn't get it as there is no plot or script in place. However, an agreement was made for an outline to be developed by the end of next year. If all parties agree, efforts will be made to get the film out by the end of 2016.
- Disney wanted a multi-film deal with Ford beyond Episode 7. This was reached.
You should definitely just take this as a rumor for now as Lucasfilm and Disney have not confirmed any offical casting and they certainly haven't confirmed development of Indiana Jones 5.
