Although it has yet to receive a proper title, the cast for the next Star Wars infused film is rounding out quite nicely. Starring Alden Ehrenreich as a young Han Solo and Donald Glover as a young Lando Calrissian, the Untitled Han Solo Movie is adding Michael K. Williams to the mix. The Assassin’s Creed actor is making the jump to the Star Wars universe. Per Variety:
“The Wire” star Michael K. Williams is in final talks to join the upcoming Han Solo spinoff starring Alden Ehrenreich, Variety has learned exclusively.
Donald Glover, Thandie Newton, Phoebe Waller-Bridge, Woody Harrelson and Emilia Clarke are already set to co-star in the Disney-Lucasfilm feature, directed by Phil Lord and Chris Miller. Jon and Lawrence Kasdan are penning the script.
The untitled Han Solo movie hits theaters May 25, 2018. Production is currently underway.
Details about Williams’ character are unknown, as are plot details for the movie, other then it being an origin tale of the rogue smuggler.
Is it okay to speculate? I’m going with Lando’s father. No? How about Han’s? Anyway, the film is expected to hit theaters on May 25th, 2018.
