“They’re talking to us,” he said. “George Lucas wanted to know whether we’d be interested. He did say that if we didn’t want to do it, they wouldn’t cast another actor in our parts — they’d just write us out…I can tell you right away that we haven’t signed any contracts. We’re in a stage where they want us to go in and meet Michael Arndt, who is the writer, and Kathleen Kennedy, who is going to run Lucasfilm. Both have had meetings set that were postponed — on their end not mine. They’re more busy than I am.”
Hamill then elaborated about wanting the original Star Wars crew back together again forEpisode VII including Williams.
“And another thing that I want to make sure of is are we going to have the whole gang back? Is Carrie, Harrison, Billy Dee and Tony Daniels, everybody that’s from the original [returning]? I want to make sure that everyone’s on board here, rather than just one.”
Williams has yet to respond to Hamill’s comments but he’s been busy himself. Most recently he appeared as himself on Modern Family in January 2013 and In 2009, the 53-year old actor had a series role on soap opera spinoff, General Hospital Night Shift playing Toussaint Du Bois. The show was later canceled.
