Rumor: Ford to Reprise Han Solo Role

Hollywood was atwitter Friday after Latino Review reporter Umberto “El Mayimbe” Gonzalez appeared on Fox News Latino to break the news—still unconfirmed—that Harrison Ford would be reprising his iconic role as Han Solo. Rumors that Ford would come back for Star Wars VII have been swirling since November, but Gonzalez is the first to claim he has confirmation. “I found out yesterday. I did my due diligence, like I do with everything. Triple checked. Legitimate sources ... His deal is done,” Gonzalez said. Ford and Lucasfilm have declined to confirm the allegation. The Latino Review has a strong reputation for breaking film news, but its track record isn't perfect. Grab Chewie and rev up the Millennium Falcon, it looks like Han Solo is back—or at least we hope.
