Having tested around 2500 actors, it seems that Disney and Lucasfilm have narrowed their search for the young Han Solo in the 2018 Star Wars spinoff movie, with Variety reporting that around twelve actors are set for meetings with Lucasfilm’s Kathleen Kennedy and directors Phil Lord and Chris Miller.
According to the site, Miles Teller, Ansel Elgort, Dave Franco, Jack Reynor, Scott Eastwood, Logan Lerman, Emory Cohen and Blake Jenner all remain in contention, and a decision is set to be made in the next couple of weeks.
Although the Han Solo anthology movie won’t start filming until January ahead of its 2018 release, it’s said that Lucasfilm wants to lock down an actor early, as the smuggler could have a small cameo in this year’s Rogue One: A Star Wars Story, which takes place prior to A New Hope.
