According sources, Alden Ehrenreich (Hail, Caeser!), Jack Reynor (Transformers: Age of Extinction), and Taron Egerton (The Kingsman) are all now on the shortlist to play Han Solo. The report goes on to note that there could be a few more names on the list, but Disney’s secrecy clouds the search while Disney declined to comment.

Rumors are that Emory Cohen (Brooklyn), and a few actors from Richard Linklater’s new movie Everybody Wants Some also had meetings.

The film is currently slated for some time in 2018, and will also touch on the Han and Chewie meet-cute. So, strap in, a Solo solo film isn’t far off from our future.
