Variety is reporting that Woody Harrelson is in talks to play Han Solo’s mentor in the spinoff film about the character. Disney has not commented on the rumors.
The film is set to begin production this month and will premiere in theaters May 25, 2018. Alden Ehrenreich will as Solo; Donald Glover and Emilia Clark will also have roles in the film.
Much like Rogue One: A Star Wars story, this newest film will take place before A New Hope and will be a standalone film.
