Star Wars: Alden Ehrenreich (above) has been confirmed to star as young Han Solo in an upcoming Star Wars spin-off adventure. Now an unconfirmed rumor claims that Ehrenreich has been signed to a three-picture deal, opening up possibilities for further adventures if the first movie is successful. Of course, it's not unusual nowadays for stars to have multiple-picture deals for prospective franchise entries, but we'll wait to see what happens. The untitled Han Solo movie is set for release on May 25, 2018. [NY Daily News] Moana: We've known for a while that Dwayne Johnson is voicing a lead role in Disney's Moana, opposite young newcomer Auli'i Cravolho as the titular character. Now members of the supporting voice cast have been revealed, including...

The search for the young Han Solo culminated with the casting of Hail, Caesar! breakout Alden Ehrenreich back in May. But many rogues had to audition for the part before Disney could pluck Ehrenreich from their rakish ranks, and that casting call recently played out in hilarious form on late-night TV. Conan O’Brien’s Comic-Con weeklong coverage included this look at the “audition tapes” for Melissa McCarthy, Bill Hader, Curtis “50 Cent” Jackson, Will Arnett, and Jodie Fucking Foster, among others.
McCarthy would rather punch up the “parsecs” line with some veggie humor, 50 Cent’s blocking is off, and Arnett’s voice is perhaps better suited to an older iteration of the handsome smuggler (or at least, one who’s enjoyed a whiskey neat at every happy hour for the last ten years or so). So Hader’s the clear frontrunner, in part because he seems to be ...

More confirmation than actual news, the New York Daily News paper has announced that Disney and Lucasfilm's deal with actor Alden Ehrenreich to play the new Han Solo includes "at least" a three-picture deal.
The paper's source says that the spin-off, which is targeting a May 2018 release, has the potential to go some fascinating directions. It doesn't indicate if that multi-picture deal is only for Han Solo-specific films or if - ala Marvel - it allows for Ehrenreich to crossover into other "Star Wars" films.
"There is a real sense of excitement around the Han Solo movie and its potential. Given that Han's early adventures do not need to be tied to the Empire, it leaves story lines open with the opportunity to really give fans something different. They can explore new galaxies and crazy creatures and bring in a wide array of new characters."

It was made official at the Star Wars Celebration that Alden Ehrenreich (“Hail, Caesar!”) would play the young Han Solo in Disney’s upcoming spinoff film. According to a new report by the NY Daily News, the 2018 movie won’t be the last time we see Ehrenreich portray the clever Smuggler. NY Daily News reports that Disney has quietly signed Ehrenreich, 26, to a three picture deal, which would certainly make sense considering the fact that most actors receive this deal if they’re a part of a big franchise. The report also says that if the first Han Solo film is a success at the box office, two more could be in the works. This information comes from an insider who says Disney has “a real sense of excitement” for the Han Solo spinoff, and that the studio feels as though the character Han Solo could “become a central figure in several movies” So far, »
In movie news, it is important to sort the wheat from the chaff – and in the modern age of viral internet stories, there is an awful of lot of chaff floating around. In most cases, that task is simple enough – but on occasion, a kernel of possibility can become encrusted in deep layers of speculation, as people try to second-guess giant production companies, and somehow predict the future. One such story has surfaced today, and refers to the upcoming Han Solo standalone movie.
The New York Daily News claims that an “insider” has confirmed that Disney expect the Han Solo movie to be the first instalment of a new trilogy – taking the opportunity provided by a character whose early years were unconnected to the main Star Wars story, to explore narrative options beyond the rebellion. Apparently, the evidence for this is a further claim that Alden Ehrenreich – the actor officially »

An anonymous insider claims that a trilogy of Han Solo spin-off movies are in the works at Disney-Lucasfilm...
Starting this December, Disney-Lucasfilm will release the first in its A Star Wars Story spin-off movies, with Gareth Edwards' Rogue One kicking off a string of stand-alone adventures away from the main, numbered series.
At the Star Wars Celebration Europe event a few days ago, Hail, Caesar actor Alden Ehrenreich was officially confirmed as the new, younger Han Solo, ahead of his spin-off movie's production start in early 2017. More recently, however, there have been reports that the Han Solo mvoie won't be a one-off - according to The New York Daily News' insider, there are already plans to give the smuggler a trilogy of films.
"There is a real sense of excitement around the Han Solo movie and its potential," the paper's report reads. "Given that Han’s »
We all know that Alden Ehrenreich is set to play the young Han Solo in a forthcoming movie over at Lucasfilm, but what we didn’t known until today is that that multiple movies featuring the character are being planned.
Ehrenreich was introduced formally as Han Solo at Star Wars Celebration over in London just over a week ago, and now news hits us from the The New York Daily News that Disney and Lucasfilm have huge plans for a new franchise featuring the young star.
The word is that Ehrenreich has a three-picture deal at the studio starting with the first movie from Chris Miller and Phil Lord which hits screens in 2018. Here’s what an insider had to say to the newspaper.

It seems everyone’s favourite stuck up, half-witted, scruffy-looking Nerfherder is set to get his own Star Wars trilogy. After the reveal at Star Wars Celebration that Alden Ehrenreich will play a young Han Solo in the next anthology film, the New York Daily News is now reporting Lucasfilm hopes to expand his role with a three-picture deal. A source said:
“There is a real sense of excitement around the Han Solo movie and its potential. Given that Han’s early adventures do not need to be tied to the Empire, it leaves story lines open with the opportunity to really give fans something different. They can explore new galaxies and crazy creatures and bring in a wide array of new characters.”
It wouldn’t exactly be surprising if this turned out to be true. After all, Han Solo is one of the most memorable and favourite characters in the »

According to the New York Daily News there are two more Han Solo Star Wars anthology films are on the way. The site says that Disney has quietly signed 26-year-old Alden Ehrenreich (Hail, Caesar!) to a three-picture deal, if the one currently being written strikes gold at the box office.
Their insider says:
"There is a real sense of excitement around the Han Solo movie and its potential. Given that Han’s early adventures do not need to be tied to the Empire, it leaves story lines open with the opportunity to really give fans something different.

It will be interesting to see exactly how the Star Wars anthology films will stack up compared to the main saga flicks, but according to a recent report by The New York Daily News, these standalone films could very well become franchises in their own right. It's important to take this news with several grains of salt, but the outlet is reporting that Disney/Lucasfilm has signed Alden Ehrenreich up... Read More »

It was at Star Wars Celebration a couple of weeks ago that Lucasfilm finally confirmed that Alden Ehrenreich will play Han Solo in Phil Lord and Chris Miller’s upcoming spinoff movie, but it now appears as if the studio is considering an entire trilogy for the hero. According to a report from the New York Daily News, […]

When a Rogue One: A Star Wars Story actor accidentally revealed that one of the main characters may not make it out of their mission alive, fans weren't so angry at the big reveal as they were unfazed. The movie does take place just mere days before Star Wars: A New Hope, and none of these new Rebel characters have been mentioned anywhere else in the original, prequel or new trilogies. It was just assumed that they all died. And no one has really been questioning whether or not Rogue One is getting a sequel. In fact, most fans thought the standalone adventures would all be one-offs. Well, as we're learning, that may not necessarily be the case. But it's not Rogue One that is getting a follow-up. It will be the second movie to follow, Han Solo: A Star Wars Story.
In fact, if this new report from NY Daily News pans out, »
Phil Lord and Chris Miller searched through thousands and thousands of candidates in order to find someone to fill the legendary shoes of Harrison Ford and play a younger version of the beloved scoundrel/smuggler Han Solo. Alden Ehrenreich ultimately was their choice and we'll find out eventually how he fits the role... But who else may have tested for Lord and Miller and the brass at Lucasfilm to find the...

Recently at Star Wars Celebration, Alden Ehrenreich was officially confirmed to be the new Han Solo in a forthcoming spin-off movie. We learned that he was the first person to audition, though we know that many other people were considered for the role, including Charlie Cox (TV's Daredevil), Miles Teller (War Dogs) and Dave Franco (Now You See Me 2), who have all spoken about the audition process. Late night television host Conan O'Brien has now revealed a brand new video, purporting to be "Young Han Solo Audition Tapes." Watch it below. The first actor featured is Bill Hader, who was an instrumental part of the process to give voice to Bb-8, the rolling droid introduced in Star Wars: The Force Awakens. Clearly, his vocal abilities are quite...

Thanks to what can only be described as a miracle of modern science, Disney may have found a way to triple the amount of Han Solo in our lives. That’s according to a hot new rumor, at least, which says that Disney and Lucasfilm are planning to change their one Han Solo Star Wars spin-off into three Han Solo spin-offs. Hail, Caesar! breakout Alden Ehrenreich will be starring in the first of those movies, which will be directed by Phil Lord and Chris Miller, and this rumor claims that he has also secretly agreed to star in two sequels as well. There’s no word on if Lord and Miller will also return, though.
As far as we can tell, this rumor originated from the New York Daily News, because it ran a story about this rumor with a big “Exclusive” in the headline. It apparently got the information »

At Star Wars Celebration Europe 2016, Disney finally confirmed what everyone in the galaxy already knew: Alden Ehrenreich would be playing a young Han Solo in the yet-to-be-titled A Star Wars Story standalone film from Lego Movie geniuses Phil Lord and Chris Miller. But what we didn’t know at the time is just how many films Alden Ehrenreich is signed […]

Hollywood and Star Wars fans alike are abuzz with the news of a spinoff movie centered around a young Han Solo, and although the film has already found its lead in Hail, Caesar! actor Alden Ehrenreich, a few more celebrities apparently wanted to audition for the iconic role. In a hilarious video courtesy of Conan, Melissa McCarthy, Adam Sandler, Bill Hader, and even 50 Cent slip on Han's vest and totally botch their lines. From confusing "parsecs" with "parsnips," to imitating Tauntauns, it definitely rivals Saturday Night Live's infamous, awkward Star Wars: The Force Awakens auditions. Check it out above! »

Over 3,000 people auditioned for Young Han Solo before the role went to Alden Ehrenreich and, over the weekend, Conan imagined how the failed auditions went. In this new clip, we see everyone from Melissa McCarthy to Adam Sandler to 50 Cent all audition for the coveted Star Wars role. The auditions go a bit off the rails — Bill Hader does perfect impressions of other characters; McCarthy confuses the movie with Harry Potter — but they're all as funny as expected, especially when even bigger names like Jodie Foster and Adam Sandler show up. Sure, none of these celebrities got the part but we'd watch any of them play Young Han Solo in an instant. »
