Alden Ehrenreich (Hail Caesar!) has landed the role of Han Solo in the upcoming Star Wars spinoff movie, possibly called “Han Solo: A Star Wars Story”.
We don’t know if he’ll shoot first, but he has the job. Alden Ehrenreich will play Han Solo in Disney’s stand-alone Star Wars movie, confirming what Deadline reported exclusively three weeks ago. Sources say the Hail Caesar! star is negotiating to seal the deal.
The film will focus on Han Solo and also feature Chewbacca in their early days as smugglers. The movie will be directed by Christopher Miller and Phil Lord, who directed “The Lego Movie”. The movie is scheduled for release on May 25, 2018.
