Star Wars Nerds it looks like we have the answer to the question: Who will play young Han Solo in the upcoming Han Solo anthology?
According to Deadline, Disney has cast 26-year old actor, Alden Ehrenreich. The actor is known primarily from his role in Hail Caesar. According to their source, the actor is in the process of negotiating a deal for the role.
The film will be directed by the team behind 21 Jump Street and The Lego Movie, Phil Lord and Christopher Miller while the man who wrote the original Star Wars Trilogy, Lawrence Kasdan, will serve as Executive Producer on the film.
This should be an interesting film. I just hope this guy can pull it off. Han Solo has some large shoes to be filled.
