Three months after the jaw-dropping announcement that Star Wars would be making a return to the big screen, Disney this week dropped another bombshell, revealing that a series of stand-alone movies focusing on core characters will also be produced.
It has been reported that Han Solo and Boba Fett are two of the characters most likely to get the solo movie treatment, which has led to widespread speculation about who could possibly fill Harrison Ford's shoes in the beloved role.
The proposed spin-off would take place between Revenge of the Sith and A New Hope, and given that Ford was 35 when he first appeared as Han, it's safe to assume producers will be looking for an actor in their 20s or early 30s.
With that in mind, who would you like to see take on the role? Is Ryan Gosling too soft-edged to play everybody's favourite rugged space smuggler? »
