Young Han Solo Spinoff: Actor Shortlist Released

We’re getting closer to finding out who will be filling in the shoes of Harrison Ford in the as yet untitled young Han Solo film set for release in 2018!

Disney reportedly met with over 2,500 actors for the part and according to THR, have whittled down the shortlist to five actors; Alden Ehrenreich (Hail, Caesar!), Taron Egerton (Kingsman: The Secret Service, Eddie the Eagle), Emory Cohen (Brooklyn), Blake Jenner (Everybody Wants Some), and Jack Reynor (Transformers: Age of Extinction).

Taron Egerton is probably the most well known of the five and, in my opinion the best choice, but his schedule is pretty busy with the upcoming Kingsman sequel. However I really did enjoy Alden Ehrenreich performances in Hail, Caesar! so I don’t envy who has to make the final decision!

Directed by Phil Lord and Chris Miller, the young Han Solo standalone film is scheduled to land in cinemas on May 25, 2018.
