Samuel L. Jackson keen on Star Wars: Episode VII

Would like to make a return

Ever since the news of a new Star Wars film was broken back in October, practically everyone to ever be associated with the franchise has come out and had their say on the matter.

Samuel L. Jackson is the latest star to do just that, with the man who played Mace Windu confirming that he’d be more than happy to pick up the purple lightsaber for another go-around.

“I’m not surprised but totally geeked by the idea of there being more Star Wars,” said Jackson. “It’s like, okay, Obi-Wan was dead when Episode IV 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."

When specifically asked if he wanted to return, Jackson replied, "Hell yeah! 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.”

Sounds like whoever gets to fill the director’s chair can stick him in the “yes” column then. Star Wars: Episode VII opens in the UK on 17 July 2015.

Would you like to see Jackson return to the series? Tell us, below!

      dont you just love how these days we can say that a film that still has no shooting schedule, no actors, no director and no script "opens in the UK on 17 July 2015."

      I'm not sure if I need to see Samuel moth er fu ck ing Jackson in another Star Wars film but I would still be happy if it happens. I've been watching lots of play-through youtubes of the Force Unleashed series and I feel the forthcoming films with be drawn from that style, they're very dynamic. Watching darth vader's recently dumped apprentice use the force to crush an incoming tie fighter is pretty special!

      I wouldn't mind him returning it makes it feel more of a complete story if there are characters in all the movies connecting them, the prequels weren't great but I thought Jackson was alright in them

      To be fair the film does need a token black guy. There's only one black person in the galaxy at any one time.
