Disney Casts Its Han Solo Spin-Off Star

Well, it was a matter of months or longer, but now it looks like the production behind the forthcoming Han Solo spin-off has reached a new plateau. Deadline reports that Hail, Caesar! co-star Alden Ehrenreich has officially been cast to play the title role, with the looming possibility of a cameo in Gareth Edwards's Rogue One: A Star Wars Story.

The news comes as one of a few updates including that of character actor Spencer Wilding being tapped to suit up as Darth Vader just a few days ago, all since the Han Solo spin-off was announced last summer. Other candidates for Han Solo included finalists like Transformers: Age Of Extinction co-star Jack Reynor and Kingsman star Taron Egerton.

The Lego Movie pair Phil Lord and Chris Miller are directing from a script by Jon Kasdan and his father, Star Wars: Episodes V, VI and VII writer Lawrence Kasdan who who will executive produce with Jason McGatlin. Lucasfilm's Kathleen Kennedy will produce while the film stays the course for a May 25, 2018 release.
