His name might not sound familiar, but according to the Hollywood Reporter it will be come 2018 when Alden Ehrenreich stars as the young Han Solo in the Untitled Han Solo Star Wars Anthology Film (as it’s listed right now on IMDB). Apparently, Ehrenreich is in final negotiations to play the iconic sci-fi role.
Han Solo was (of course) originally played by Harrison Ford.
The only movie that Mr. Ehrenreich was recently in that might look familiar was last year’s Hail, Caesar! (the Coen brothers movie that starred George Clooney).
Phil Lord and Chris Chris Miller (21 Jump Street and The Lego Movie) will direct the standalone Star Wars film.
