According to multiple online reports, the man who will be playing young, Corellian spice smuggler Han Solo, has been cast. His name is Alden Ehrenreich and you may know him from Beautiful Creatures or most recently Hail, Caesar!
As of yet, nothing has been confirmed by Disney but we should be hearing about his recent signing soon. The Star Wars Han Solo spinoff will revolve around Han in his younger days and tell the story of how he became the man who would one day, make a deal with an old man and young farmer that would lead him to a path of heroism.
I don’t know how I feel about this casting yet, I need some time to let it sink in before I make a judgment. Ehrenreich is a good actor from what I’ve seen of him so far but some of his movies are not not very good. We’ll have to wait and see but what’s most is he has been cast.
The Han Solo movie is slated for release in 2018
