"No matter where you go, there you are."


The young Han Solo could be one of these chaps


The search for a young Han Solo continues, but the list gets ever shorter.

THR have the news that brings word that Alden Ehrenreich (Hail, Caesar!), Jack Reynor (Transformers: Age of Extinction), and Taron Egerton (Kingsman: The Secret Service) are in the running. Variety‘s Justin Kroll also mentioned that Blake Jenner (Everybody Wants Some) and Jack O’Connell (Unbroken) are on the list.

The film does not shoot until next January, but sources close to the situation say the reason for such an early decision has more to do with another Star Wars film currently shooting, rather than the untitled Han Solo pic. While insiders were unable to confirm, the new Solo could have a small cameo in Rogue One: A Star Wars before appearing in his own standalone pic.

Rogue One is still shooting and is supposed to be set between “Episode III” and “Episode IV,” making this new Han Solo age appropriate for an appearance in the film.

Phil Lord and Chris Miller will direct the “Star Wars story” which features a screenplay written by Lawrence Kasdan and Jon Kasdan and is set to debut in theaters on May 25, 2018. The film will focus on how young Han Solo became the smuggler, thief, and scoundrel. Disney CEO Bob Iger revealed last week that the film will also feature Chewbacca alongside Solo.
