Disney’s untitled Han Solo spin-off movie continues to take shape with the addition of Woody Harrelson (Natural Born Killers). Harrelson is rumored to be playing somewhat of a mentor to Alden Ehrenreich (Hail, Caesar!), who’ll be playing the young, sarcastic, reckless smuggler made famous by Harrison Ford.
Additional cast members include Donald Glover (The Martian) as a young Lando Calrissian, previously played by Billy Dee Williams in The Empire Strikes Back and Return of the Jedi. Emilia Clarke (Game of Thrones) is also part of the cast in an unspecified role.
According to Deadline, the untitled Han Solo spin-off will be directed by Phil Lord and Christopher Miller (The Lego Movie) and written by Lawrence Kasdan (Star Wars: Episode V-VII) and Jon Kasdan (In the Land of Women). The film will focus on Solo’s days before he linked up with the rebel alliance.
The untitled Han Solo movie, which shoots early this year, has a scheduled release for May 25th, 2018. Stay tuned!
