The young Han Solo film looks to have added a new cast member. Variety is reporting that Sing Street star Ian Kenny has been cast in the yet untitled Han Solo A Star Wars Story film. There are no details about the role he would play. If true (and it comes from Variety, who are very rarely wrong when it comes to this sort of thing), Kenny would join a cast that already includes Alden Ehrenreich as Han, Donald Glover as Lando, and Game of Thrones star Emilia Clarke in an unknown role.
Details are scarce about the Han Solo film directed by Phil Lord and Chris Miller (The Lego Movie, 21 Jump Street). However, Disney CEO Bob Iger recently revealed that the film would cover Han from ages 18 to 24 and would deal with him meeting Chewbacca and finding his soon to be famous ship, the Millennium Falcon.
The untitled young Han Solo film hits theaters on May 25th, 2018 and stars Alden Ehrenreich (Hail Caesar!) as Han Solo, Donald Glover (Atlanta) as Lando Calrissian, Emilia Clarke (Game of Thrones), Woody Harrelson (True Detective) as Beckett, Phoebe Waller-Bridge (Fleabag), Thandie Newton (Westworld), and Michael K. Williams (The Wire). The film is directed by Phil Lord and Chris Miller (The Lego Movie), with a script by Lawrence and Jon Kasdan.
