Casting for the 2018 Young Han Solo film has been under way for a little while now.  A few weeks ago a rumored short list for the lead role was leaked and now Star Wars News Net have a few more names to add to the list of young actors in consideration.  According to their sources, Taron Egerton (Kingsmen: The Secret Service) and Alden Ehrenreich (Hail, Caesar!) are being considered for the role, Egerton having auditioned "more than once" for the film.  They also report that Idris Elba had a meeting with Lucasfilm recently, although for what is unclear.

Other actors who have previously been rumored to be in consideration for the young Han Solo role include Dave Franco, Scott Eastwood, Miles Teller, and Ansel Elgort.  The Han Solo Anthology film (or "Hanthology", if you will) is slated for a May 25th, 2018 release.  The film is directed by Phil Lord and Chris Miller (The Lego Movie, 21 Jump Street) and is written by legendary Star Wars writer Lawrence Kasdan, who co-wrote The Empire Strikes Back, Return of the Jedi, and The Force Awakens, and his son Jon Kasdan.

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