Carrie Fisher told TV Guide that she is due on the set of the next Star Wars film later this spring and that Harrison Ford and Mark Hamill will be joining. The movie is due out at the end of 2015.
"I'd like to wear my old [cinnamon buns] hairstyle again — but with white hair," she said. "I think that would be funny."
As reported in The Guardian, JJ Abrams, who is directing, confirmed that the script is complete and that he has met with Jesse Plemons (Breaking Bad) and others about roles in the movie.
