Harrison Ford has long displayed unease with even discussing "Star Wars" in public, but the man who made Han Solo famous is reportedly up for a return to the galaxy far, far away. As an unnamed source told Geoff Boucher from Entertainment Weekly's EW.com, Ford is "open to the idea of doing the movie and he’s upbeat about it," though there is one caveat: He wants Han Solo to die.

That isn't necessarily the biggest surprise. As "Star Wars" fans might remember, Solo was supposed to perish in "Star Wars: Episode VI - The Return of the Jedi," but George Lucas decided it wouldn't be prudent.

"I thought he should have died in the last one, just to give it some bottom; some gravitas," Ford told Peter Travers in an interview with ABC in 2010. "George didn't think there was any future in dead Han toys."
