Alden Ehrenreich to play young Han Solo in Star Wars



According to The Hollywood Reporter, actor Alden Ehrenreich is about to ink a deal to play a young Han Solo in Disney's re-energised Star Wars franchise and may first appear in Gareth Edwards' Rogue One: A Star Wars Story this December.

Phil Lord and Chris Miller (The LEGO Movie) are directing the upcoming Star Wars standalone movie, which is scheduled for release in 2018 to bridge the gap whilst fans wait for the final chapter in the sequel trilogy that began with JJ Abrams' The Force Awakens and continues with Rian Johnson's Episode VIII in 2017.

What do you think of this casting choice? Let me know in the comments below.
