The casting for this character has been so top-secret that it has gotten to the point of being referred to as project Red Cup. After screen tests, it was narrowed down to only a handful of actors that included Taron Egerton and Jack Reynor. However, sources with knowledge of the casting process, said that Ehrenreich is now leading the pack after after an impressive performance.

The Han Solo film from Disney is set to be released on May 26th, 2018 and will be directed The Lego Movie team of by Phil Lord and Christopher Miller. Lucasfilm President Kathleen Kennedy is producing with Lawrence Kasdan and Jason McGatlin being executive producers. Kasdan, who is credited with writing the scripts for The Empire Strikes Back, Return Of The Jedi and The Force Awakens — scripted the new movie with his son Jon Kasdan.

The movie will focus on Solo as background of being a smuggler before linking up with the rebel alliance.
