Jaime Costa Is Determined To Play Han Solo, Watch

Jaime Costa wants to play Han Solo so bad he’s willing to do it for free. The actor launched a crowdfunding campaign last week to create an 8-10 minute fan film where Han Solo goes on a daring adventure to rescue Chewbacca. What is unique about this project is Costa doesn’t want to make money, he just wants to pay his crew to make the film. That sounds, unlike Han Solo, but also sound like something Han would do.

Costa worked on a Wolverine fan film in 2013 that has 13.5 million views.

About the Han Solo Fan film:

The Universe’s favorite intergalactic smuggler sets out on an epic quest to rescue an old friend. He uses his mechanical skills, cunning wit, and his creative interpretation of the rules to fight, flirt, bribe, and barter his way to victory. But will it be enough? Before there was A New Hope, there was Han Solo — just an outlaw trying to survive in a galaxy more corrupt than he is…and far less forgiving.

The Han Solo fan film is directed by Keith Allen, from Nathaniel Nauert’s script. Costa will assume the role of Han Solo with Cory Leeper as Chewbacca.

The project has raised $6000 in eight days with 131 donations. Costa is trying to raise $20,000. The actor has two months to go.

What do you think? Do you want to see the fan film get funded and produced?
