Samuel L. Jackson Hopes To Return For ‘Star Wars: Episode 7’
The story line for the new Star Wars movie isn’t known yet but Samuel L. Jackson is hoping that his character, Mace Windu, gets written back into the series.
Jackson said that he doesn’t care if he comes back as a one armed ghost or a hologram, he just wants to be involved in the new movie.
“It’s like, okay, Obi-Wan was dead when episode four started, so maybe everyone thinks I’m dead and we’ll find out what happened to Mace Windu. I can come back as one-armed or a one-handed Jedi that’s still around that didn’t actually die. I could do that or be a ghost hologram. I don’t care. I just want to stay associated with the franchise. Not that I won’t because I’ve been in three of them.”
Jackson said that he wasn’t too surprised that Disney decided to make a 7th film in the franchise but the veteran actor did say that he was extremely excited about the new film.
“I’m not surprised but totally geeked by the idea of there being more Star Wars … I just always loved it. I always loved the idea of it, that there’s this whole civilization out there somewhere else that’s just as much fun and different and diverse and wild as we are.”
The new Star Wars movie won’t hit theaters until at least 2015. Jackson has a lot on his plate at the moment, he has several movies lined up including the next Avengers and Captain America movies, but the actor said that he’d make room in his schedule for Star Wars.
When asked if he wanted to play Mace Windu again in Star Wars: Episode 7, Jackson said: “Hell Yeah!”
