He said, "I found that out yesterday. I did my due diligence, like I do with everything. Triple checked. Legitimate sources.
"His deal is done. It's just a formality. They haven't really announced it yet."
If true then it's safe to assume that plans for the film will also involve returns for Mark Hamill and Carrie Fisher as Luke Skywalker and Princess Leia.
Typically dealing with comic book movies, Latino Review have a good track record when it comes to big scoops.
Last year they revealed the Marion Cotillard's true role in 'The Dark Knight Rises', which ended up being a major plot point in Christopher Nolan's Batman epic.
As nothing has been officially confirmed regarding Harrison Ford however, this is purely a rumour at this stage.
