There has been a lot of talk surrounding the Star Wars Episode 7 movie since it was revealed that Disney would be making the movie, following their $4.05bn purchase of LucasFilm. Now, writer and director Kevin Smith, who is a renowned fan of the franchise, has given his idea for the new Star Wars storyline.
Smith wrote in The Hollywood Reporter, “If Disney wants to make another cool billion dollars like it did with The Avengers last summer, all it needs to do is make a Boba Fett time travel flick. It would centre on a character everyone digs and allow for a greatest hits of Star Wars while playing with an already-established timeline, a la Back to the Future.
He added, “You could use every living (and dead) actor from the previous Star Wars films, no matter what their age - which means Mark Hamill, Carrie Fisher and Harrison Ford can come and play as well. It'd be a dream come true for any Star Wars fan - particularly those of us who opted out of the boring-ass real world every summer for galaxies far, far away.”
Mark Hamill, Carrie Fisher and Harrison Ford have all already declared an interest in making a return to the franchise, while a number of other Hollywood stars have made a plea to star in the film. Star Wars Episode 7 is currently looking to be released in 2015.
