Rumor: 2016 Stand Alone Film Will be About Han Solo

Our friends over at MakingStarWars.net are reporting on some intriguing information about the first Star Wars stand alone film coming in 2016, directed by Gareth Edwards and written by Gary Whitta.  According to MSW source, the film is a Han Solo film, the production code name is Luminac Industrial Goods, and that production on the film will overlap somewhat with Rian Johnson's work on Episode VIII.  In addition, Breaking Bad star Aaron Paul is "looking to be attached" to the film "in some fashion."  I can't see him as Han Solo, but I would not be opposed to seeing him in the film in some other fashion.

Now, the Han Solo report isn't a huge surprise, going as far back as February 2013 Han has been rumored to be getting his own stand alone film.  What is surprising is that this is contrary to a Hasbro leak from May 2014 which stated that a Han Solo was coming in 2018 and a Boba Fett film (which has also been rumored since February 2013) would be coming in 2016.  Now, these scripts were likely worked on concurrently and there could have been a change in recent months as tow which would come first.

As for the production code name "Luminac Industrial Goods,"  not much can be gleaned from this.  It gives away as much as the film's working title which, we reported in November, Los Alamos.  And, in case you are wondering, yes they are both for the same film, much in the same way that The Force Awakens had several code names, such as Foodles and AVCO. 

As always this is just a rumor until confirmed or denied by Lucasfilm or Disney.
