15 hours ago | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Last month, a new report claimed that Disney and LucasFilm had narrowed down their final candidates to play the iconic Han Solo in their upcoming Star Wars Anthology adventure. The finalists included Miles Teller, Ansel Elgort, Dave Franco, Jack Reynor, Scott Eastwood, Logan Lerman, Emory Cohen and Blake Jenner, who were part of a much larger field of candidates who were mentioned in a separate report from December. Today we have a new report from Star Wars News Net that claims two more actors are up for the role, who weren't previously mentioned, Taron Egerton and Alden Ehrenreich. But there may be an unexpected twist that no one saw coming!

Last year, Taron Egerton mentioned that he would love to play Han Solo in the upcoming Star Wars Anthology: Han Solo, but he wasn't among the several actors mentioned who had auditioned for the role. Others who reportedly tested to »

12 January 2016 12:29 PM, PST | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Yesterday, a new report revealed Disney and LucasFilm's casting short list for their second Star Wars spinoff Han Solo. The studio has already set a May 25, 2018 release date, with production scheduled to begin in January 2017. Buried within Variety's report is an intriguing yet unconfirmed detail, which claims that whoever lands the Han Solo role will also make an appearance in this year's Rogue One: A Star Wars Story.

The report claims there is still one month left of principal photography on Rogue One: A Star Wars Story, and that Han Solo may have a small cameo in this spinoff, before moving on to the Han Solo standalone. Both Rogue One: A Star Wars Story and the Han Solo spinoff take place in the waning years between Star Wars: Episode III - Revenge of the Sith and Star Wars: Episode IV - A New Hope.

With Star Wars: The Force Awakens currently shredding box office records left and right, fan interest in this beloved franchise has never been higher. Production is still under way on the first spinoff Rogue One: A Star Wars Story, which hits theaters this December, with filming starting soon on Star Wars: Episode VIII, in theaters May 2017.

'Han Solo' Movie Takes Place 10 Years Before 'Star Wars: A New Hope'

6 January 2016 11:23 AM, PST | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Now that Star Wars: The Force Awakens is a massive hit, fans are already looking forward to what's next in this growing Star Wars franchise. In December, the first spinoff, Rogue One: A Star Wars Story, will hit theaters, followed by Star Wars: Episode VIII, which starts production this month and is set for release in May 2017, and the second spinoff, Star Wars Anthology: Han Solo, which is coming in 2018. We know that the Han Solo spinoff is set before Star Wars: Episode IV - A New Hope, but during a Director's Guild of America Q&A last month, screenwriter Lawrence Kasdan offered new details about where this story fits in the timeline.

"[The film] will not be, 'Here's where he was born and this is how he was raised.' I think what it will be is what was he like 10 years earlier [than A New Hope]-maybe a little earlier, you'll get a glimpse. »
