>Variety reports that Non-Disclosure agreements and test deals are currently being hammered out and that Kathleen Kennedy and directors Phil Lord and Chris Miller will be making a final decision in the coming weeks. Shooting on the film does not commence until January 2017. The site adds that the casting process is happening relatively early because the actor cast to play a young Han Solo could appear in Star Wars: Episode VIII or Rogue One: A Star Wars Story.

Doesn't Rogue One happen practically right before A New Hope, with them giving the death star plans to the rebellion just in time.
I thought they were casting for a Han Solo ten years before ANH?
That makes no sense for roughe one
And who the fuck wants flashbacks of young solo in episode 8?
Disney is fucking up
Why? Who has ever thought to themselves that it'd be cool to see what Solo was like as a kid? Who has ever wanted to see someone other than Ford playing Solo?
Star Wars is an interesting universe because of the scope it implies. When you hammer it all out and put it all on screen/in print all you do is make it feel small.
Ansel Elgort is the only one who looks the role at all.
Still a dumb idea for a movie though.
You'd want to see solo going on adventures with lando and chewie
Getting into run ins with the empire and star crime lords
So a young Han movie could be fun, just don't show him growing up , that's fucking shit
I want to see a scoundrel fucking doing shit and taking names inthe galaxy
He should play both though, fuck it. He's got that "I'm a man" look Ford had, he's handsome, charismatic, audiences love him. Better than these fucking pretty boys they're eyeing.
>star crime lords
>there will never be a gritty, sleazy crime saga set on Nar Shadaa or one of the other countless hives of corruption and villainy along the Outer Rim
this is what upsets me most
I'm hoping this is one Disney's red herring things, and they secretly cast this guy to throw people off.
Because how could they not? Ford himself must have suggested him at least.
WHAT THE HELL DISNEY, WHY HASN'T THIS GUY EVEN BEEN CONSIDERED?
I AM PISSED. I AM ANGRY PISSED. WHAT THE FUCK.
Ansel, and that's it. They're all babyfaced, but Ansel at least gives a very charismatic vibe when he's on screen. Which is a crucial prerequisite for playing Han.
I'm willing to bet that the executives are able to see that and he's the one who will land the role. The rest are literally "i'm a background filler: the actor".
He isn't that good looking, your photo lies.
Also he has a high pitched screechy voice that has nothing on Ford.
Please no. His character was ruined enough in the new Star Wars and I was glad he died.
This spin-off will just make things worse and tarnish the original trilogy forever. Be prepared for stuff like this:
>Movie opens with Han Solo and random woman in bed
>"You're a bit of a quick shot."
>"It's important to always shoot first, lady."
>"Yeah right, and I'm going to marry a galactic princess!"
>proceeds to look knowingly into the camera
>"Why would I buy this heap of junk? What's the name?"
>"The Milennium Falcon and it can do the Kessel run in 14 parsecs."
>"That's a shame. I would've been impressed if you said 12."
It's a crime they're not considering pic related. When I saw him in Inside Llewyn Davis my first thought was that he'd be perfect for this
>no Anthony Ingruber
what were they thinking?
They struck gold with Ford. No way in hell they'll find someone even close to as cool as him to fill the role. How many young people could convincingly assume the role? There's probably some carpenter in California who could do it, but what are the chances they'll find him?
That's not true, Harrison has specifically praised him. He's pretty much gotten approval from the Master.
Almost no one wants a Solo movie at all but absolutely fucking no one wants to watch a movie where Han Solo is that young. His defining characteristic is that he's cool. Young characters are not cool.
When he has that initial close-up and he's doing the Ford smirk, I got chills. If Disney doesn't understand that something like that is the key to this movie, the whole project's fucked.
Well that changes everything. He should at least be considered.
Let's be honest, Harrison got his start because of his incredible charisma, not acting skills. And that's exactly the thing none of those gigolos above have.
For anyone who says the impression is great but he's not a strong enough actor to carry the lead, this would be true for any other ford character except han solo.
Ford in star wars wasn't an experienced actor and his performance was just as rocky as everyone else's. It worked because han solo was a bad actor. Solo is a character that has a 24/7 impersonation of a macho smuggler and womanizer, and the audience knows he's pretending to be someone he's not, that's why we like him.
Ford was like, 36? years old in star wars. Imagine an even younger han solo who would have an even phonier machismo. It's the spitting image of this guy.
If there are more honest scenes where he needs to act better, he can drop the ford accent. We'll still buy him as ford if he's using it 90% of the movie. Can't say the same for any other person they could cast.
I swear to God if Franco gets this role I will fly to the USA and find him, pin him down, take a shit in his mouth and then cum in his eyes.
I mean nobody else could be Han Solo as we know him, but I think the role of a young cocksure smuggler kid could be played by somebody else. It's Han in evolution, so somebody not fully there works great
he has a very good side profile, but head on this nigga looks like the masketta in Drive
Because he looks like a fag.
#1 rule of being Harrison Ford: You want to fuck women.
>Reality show contestant
>Languished under Glee's inconsistent writing and got axed right after officially joining the cast.
>Now married to the qt from Supergirl, posited to be launched into Hollywood by Linklater's next movie, got steady employment, wrote and directed a supposedly pretty good indie flick and might be Han Solo.
Dude really made it.
He's the lead in Linklater's next movie, a "spiritual sequel" to Dazed and Confused that's posited to launch a bunch of generally unknown young actors into more prolific careers.
Also I don't give a fuck about a Han or Boba Fett spin off.
I really want a Obi Wan (with Mcgregor) and a Darth Vader spinoff. (With Hayden)
>Dave Franco is a repulsive weasel
The Jew genes are strong with this one.
>Anthony Ingruber won't get the part because Disney is fucking retarded and this film will try to pander to teenage girls by using a well known heartthrob or some stupid shit that will inevitably happen
>Ingruber wants the part, looks the part, and has shown that he could act the part even at fucking 16 years old.
This movie will be a disaster
Blake fucking Jenner is the only correct choice
>Still a dumb idea for a movie though.
>winning the Falcon from Lando
>saving Chewbacca and the start of a lifetime friendship
>the Kessel Run
>dealing with Jabba the Hutt and Boba Fett
