Woody Harrelson In Early Talks For ‘Han Solo’ Spin-Off

This Han Solo cast just gets better and better. According to Variety, Woody Harrelson is in talks to join the Star Wars spin-off movie based on Han Solo.

The report states that sources close to the production claim Harrelson is the top choice for the role, but Disney hasn’t finalized the deal. Harrelson will potentially play a mentor role to a young Han, but no more details we offered surrounding the potential role. Starring Alden Ehrenreich the spin-off will be set before the events of A New Hope similar to Rogue One, which continues to succeed at the box-office.

Harrelson will star in next year’s War for the Planet of the Apes, as well as The Glass Castle and Wilson. The report also claims that while the production has been casting largely upcoming actors it was important to Lucasfilm to get a big name actor for this role.


Directed by Phil Lord and Chris Miller the Star Wars anthology movie will also star Donald Glover and Game of Thrones star Emilia Clarke. The film is slated to hit theaters on May 25, 2018.
