Han Solo Movie Begins Production
Writer, producer and director Chris Miller posted this Tweet yesterday to mark the start of filming of the untitled Han Solo movie. Miller is co-directing the film that takes a look at Han Solo’s younger days with Phil Lord.
Alden Ehrenreich will be playing the role of the young Han Solo, and Community actor Donald Glover is set to play the young version of Han’s longtime friend/enemy Lando Calrissian. Woody Harrelson was just recently announced to star in the film as well. He has been cast as an unlikely mentor for Han who will more than likely teach him the tricks of the trade for smuggling as well as his pilot skills. Details on the plot of the movie have remained a secret still.
The Han Solo film is scheduled to be released May 2018 and Star Wars: The Last Jedi will be released this December. There is also word of more Star Wars spinoff movies based on the early days of Jedi Master Yoda and galactic bounty hunter Boba Fett in the works. (ABC News)
