If you’re like us, you’ve already started dreaming up a Han Solo actor shortlist of your own (that is, actors we think would make a great Han Solo for the upcoming Star Wars Anthology: Han Solo movie). Now, it looks like the official shortlist has been revealed.
Sources at Variety tell the outlet that the pool of potential Han Solo actors has been narrowed down to about a dozen of Hollywood’s hottest stars. The list includes: Miles Teller (Whiplash, Divergent), Ansel Elgort (The Fault in Our Stars, Divergent), Dave Franco (21 Jump Street), Jack Reynor (Transformers, MacBeth), Scott Eastwood (Fury, Diablo), Logan Lerman (Fury, 3:10 to Yuma), Emory Cohen (Brooklyn) and Blake Jenner (Glee, Supergirl).
Star Wars Producer Kathleen Kennedy and the film’s directors Chris Miller and Phil Lord will begin testing the lot, and they’re expected to make the decision within a couple of weeks.
Meanwhile, the Star Wars Anthology: Han Solo film (which isn’t the official name but that’s what we’re going with for now) won’t begin shooting until January 2017, and it has an expected release date of May 25, 2018.
