Jackson says that despite repeated hints that he want to return for Episode VII all he has had is an "hmm".
It was reported earlier in the year that Hamill, who played Luke Skywalker in the classic trilogy, was in training to get fit for a return to Star Wars. But according to Jackson the two spoke recently and Hamill denied being contacted to reprise his role.
Also speaking to Samuel L Jackson recently was Ewan McGregor, who has also denied any involvement with the new sequel trilogy in production by Disney. The Episodes VII script has apparently still not been finalised, and producers are keen to cast a 40-something military man, similar to Matt Damon's portrayal in 2013's Elysium.
