    Filming march ? guess he is not in starwarsVII then. Was his demands to high.
    Have Ford forgotten who put him in fandom in the first place ? if he wont be in VII because of his ego FU.

      filming on star wars is definitely gonna take a while so he could do this movie first and then film his scenes in star wars. theres a bunch of movies where that happens with major stars, they film everything else first and then do their bits. or vice versa, do their bits first and then they leave.

      Wow. That was a leap, even for an internet rage addict. Maybe Ford's role in “The Age of Adaline” is relatively small, so there's little to no conflict? Or the SW7 shooting schedule is structured in such a way that he can take on both?
