Well isn’t this a sweet little rumor…
It would seem that LucasFilm has their eye on Woody Harrelson to join the Galaxy Far Far Away for the upcoming stand-alone Han Solo film which will star Alden Ehrenrich (Han Solo), Donald Glover (Lando Calrissian), and Emilia Clarke (character unknown).
The second Star Wars stand-alone is seeking a mentor figure for young Han and Harrelson has perfected that role. Well, a sarcastic version of a mentor thanks to his role in The Hunger Games franchise as well as the recently released film, The Edge of Seventeen.
The Solo Han Solo film, like Rogue One, will be set prior to Star Wars: A New Hope. The film is scheduled to begin production this month – so we should know about Harrelson’s involvement soon. The film is slated to hit theaters in 2018!
So does this rumor tinkle you pink?
Solo Han Solo (god, I hope that is the name of the film) is slated for a May 2018 release!
