Star Wars News: Paul Bettany Joins ‘Han Solo’ Film

Ron Howard loves his Twitter, and Friday night he gave Star Wars fans another treat announcing Paul Bettany had joined the cast of the Han Solo film.


The film will explore Han and Chewbacca’s adventures before the events of ‘Star Wars: A New Hope,’ including their early encounters with that other card-playing rogue from a galaxy far, far away, Lando Calrissian.

The Han Solo film is directed by Ron Howard and stars Alden Ehrenreich, Donald Glover, Emilia Clarke, Woodly Harrelson, Paul Bettany, Thandie Newton, Phoebe Waller-Bridge and Joonas Suotamo.

Han Solo’s return is slated for a May 25, 2018, release.
