Harrison Ford's Injury Takes Him Out Of Star Wars 7, Will Han Solo Die Now Like The Actor Wants?

Patrick Frye

Could Harrison Ford's injury result in the actor being written out of Star Wars 7 or will the situation be handled similar to Paul Walker's role in Fast & Furious 7? Or perhaps, horror of horrors, audiences may even see Han Solo's death in the new movie...

In a related report by The Inquisitr, Ford's surgery on his broken left leg went well, he left the hospital in wheelchair, and he is now recovering but it is believed the Han Solo actor could be missing in action from the set for up to six months, which may as well be light years based upon the hyperspace-paced schedule that modern filmmakers keep nowadays. There are even rumors that Lando could be flying the Millennium Falcon and perhaps even Tom Cruise could make a cameo due to Harrison Ford's injury. Regardless of all the rumors, it is reported that Ford is open to doing Indiana Jones 5 assuming everything goes well with his recovery.

Star Wars 7 fan sites have been reporting there was an emergency meeting held earlier this week that discussed what to do about the situation. Having one of the hydraulic doors on the Millennium Falcon fall on him was bad enough but supposedly the options being discussed are temporarily ceasing products, which could delay the release date, or rewriting the script, or, worst of all, writing Han Solo out of the script entirely.

Han Solo Screaming

None of this has been confirmed by LucasFilm, Disney, or director J.J. Abrams' Bad Robot production company, but it is possible that Harrison Ford's death wish may see reality. At this point you're probably screaming, "What do you mean, Ford wants Han dead?" I'm not making this scenario up since in the 2004 documentary Empire Of Dreams, Harrison Ford told us he wanted Han Solo dead in Episode 6:

"I thought Han Solo should die. I thought he ought to sacrifice himself for [Luke and Leia]. He's got no mama. He's got no papa. He's got no future. He has no story responsibilities at this point. So let's allow him to commit self-sacrifice."
