After Disney announced the development of Star Wars: Episode VII back in October, a number of actors and directors have stepped forward, expressing their interest in the highly-anticipated project. Samuel L. Jackson, who starred as Mace Windu in Star Wars: Episode I - The Phantom Menace, Star Wars: Episode II - Attack of the Clones, and Star Wars: Episode III - Revenge of the Sith, revealed he is game to return as the Jedi master. Here's what he had to say, when asked recently whether he would come back.
Samuel L. Jackson wants to return as Mace Windu in Star Wars: Episode VII
"Hell yeah! I'm not surprised but totally geeked by the idea of there being more Star Wars. 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. 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."
He also spoke about what makes the franchise so special to him.
"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."
Michael Arndt is currently writing the screenplay, although it isn't known if Samuel L. Jackson's Mace Windu will be included in the script yet.
