Mark Hamill is a popular man right now with all this “Star Wars: Episode 7” news going around, but before any Luke Skywalker reprisals, he’ll be busy getting into the comic book game.
Comic book writer Mark Millar has announced that Hamill has agreed to appear in the film adaptation of “Secret Service,” reportedly being directed by outgoing “X-Men” filmmaker Matthew Vaughn. Hamill himself appears in the “Secret Service” comics, and it now appears he’ll pop up in the film as well.
I am so glad we got @hamillhimself to agree to be in Secret Service before he’s whisked away for 6 years to wield a light-sabre again!!

In “Star Wars” news, Hamill recently spoke with EW and revealed that he’s known about plans for a new trilogy since this past summer, when he had lunch with George Lucas and Carrie Fisher.
“Last August, he asked Carrie and I to have lunch with him and we did,” revealed the actor. “I thought he was going to talk about either his retirement or the Star Wars TV series that I’ve heard about—which I don’t think we were going to be involved in anyway, because that takes place between the prequels and the ones we were in and, if Luke were in them, he’d be anywhere from a toddler to a teenager so they’d get an age-appropriate actor—or the 3-D releases. So when he said, ’We decided we’re going to do Episodes VII, VIII, and IX,’ I was just gobsmacked. ’What? Are you nuts?!'”
