Lucas Comes Clean About Original Star Wars Cast in Episode VII

Reunited?
With all the hubbub regarding the new Star Wars movie supposed castings George Lucas was contacted by Business Week to try to set the record straight.
"We had already signed Mark and Carrie and Harrison—or we were pretty much in final stages of negotiation. Maybe I’m not supposed to say that. I think they want to announce that with some big whoop-de-do, but we were negotiating with them. I won’t say whether the negotiations were successful or not." 
- George Lucas
Sounds like the actors may have had to renegotiate their deals after the Disney buyout of Lucasfilm. At this time there has been no official word from StarWars.com.

"Star Wars: Episode VII" directed by J.J. Abrams is slated for a 2015 release.
