And the tennis game goes back and forth.
First Carrie Fisher admits she's in the upcoming "Star Wars: Episode VII". The next day her PR reps claim she was joking.
Today, even though he's left the franchise behind, George Lucas tells Vulture that she isn't the only one onboard:
"We had already signed Mark and Carrie and Harrison — or we were pretty much in final stages of negotiation. Maybe I’m not supposed to say that. I think they want to announce that with some big whoop-de-do, but we were negotiating with them. I won’t say whether the negotiations were successful or not."
