Isaac starred in all three of the films from the most recent Star Wars trilogy.

“I enjoyed the challenge of those films and working with a very large group of incredible artists and actors, prop makers, set designers, and all that was really fun. It’s not really what I set out to do. What I set out to do was to make handmade movies, and to work with people that inspire me. Paul [Schrader]’s movies, the things that he’s made, it’s in my DNA. I’m not alone, obviously. [For] every actor of a certain generation, those are the films that made them who they are, so that’s certainly my case. It feels like for me a personal turning point and that, as far as I’m concerned, it has nothing to do with the finished product. It’s the process of doing this.”

After being pressed for an answer on whether he'd reprise his role, he joked, “Probably, but who knows. If I need another house or something.”

Isaac is set to star in the upcoming film Dune, which is an adaptation of the 1965 novel of the same name.
