Samuel L Jackson has revealed that he could return for the new Star Wars films.
The Django Unchained actor, whose character Mace Windu was thrown out of a window by Darth Sidious in Star Wars: Episode III - Revenge Of The Sith, reckons there's still a possibility of a comeback in JJ Abrams' Episode VII.
"I thoroughly think that Jedi can fall high distances and not die. Nobody saw me die... I fell out a window with my purple lightsaber," he told Access Hollywood.
"There is a history of Jedis getting their hands cut off and showing back up," he continued, referring to Luke and Anakin Skywalker as well as his own character.
Samuel added: "Hey it's in a galaxy far, far away. I should be able to live forever!"
The franchise's original stars Carrie Fisher, Mark Hamill and Harrison Ford are expected to reprise their roles in the film, which is set for a 2015 release. Production is expected to begin in London in 2014.
"You got to put some cool Star Wars people in there. Bring the others back into it. You can't just create a whole new audience out of nowhere," said Samuel.
Samuel, who has lent his vocal talents to animated movie Turbo, will next be seen in Spike Lee's Oldboy remake and the RoboCop remake. He will also reprise his role as SHIELD leader Nick Fury in Captain America: The Winter Soldier.
