Han Solo: Phoebe Waller-Bridge In Talks To Join Cast For Star Wars Spinoff Film


Film News - Han Solo - Phoebe Waller-Bridge In Talks To Join Cast For Star Wars Spinoff FilmVariety is exclusively reporting that Phoebe Waller-Bridge is in talks with Disney to join the cast in the upcoming Star Wars standalone film about Han Solo.

 

The standalone Han Solo film, expected to be called Han Solo: A Star Wars Story in order to distinguish it from the Episode saga, is being directed by Phil Lord and Christopher Miller. This standalone film portrays Lando in his formative years as a scoundrel on the rise in the galaxy’s underworld — years before the events involving Han, Leia, and Darth Vader in The Empire Strikes Back and his rise to Rebel hero in Return of the Jedi.

 

The report states that Phoebe Waller-Bridge’s role (credits include Broadchurch and Fleabag) is set to be CGI driven, but she will be a significant part of the ensemble, similarly to key Star Wars characters in the past like Chewbacca, C-3P0 and most recently, Alan Tudyk’s K-2SO in Rogue One.

 

If Waller-Bridge signs on to join the film, he’ll be joining a cast that includes Alden EhrenreichDonald GloverEmilia Clarke and Woody Harrelson.

 

The yet to be titled Star Wars Han Solo film is scheduled for cinematic release on the 25th May 2018.
