Young 'Han Solo' Spin-Off Shortlist Down To Final Actors


By Matt O'Bryant 

Believe it or not, we might soon find out who will become our young Han Solo! It appears that Disney and Lucasfilm have narrowed their final list down to five actors, which is being reported by The Hollywood Reporter and Variety.

THR is reporting on three of the actors which are Taron Egerton (Kingsman: The Secret Service), Jack Reynor (Transformers: Age Of Extinction) and Alden Ehrenreich (Hail, Caesar!). While Variety is reporting on two others Jack O’Connell (Unbroken) and Blake Jenner (

The five actors are all interesting choices, but if I had any say in the choosing, I'd go with Taron Egerton, who has shown he can carry a big film like the Kingsman and also prove his acting chops with a smaller film like Eddie the Eagle.

We will find out soon enough though, in the mean time let us know who you would pick? Sound off in the comments below with your choice and why. 

We will continue to update you as this story further develops. 

Young Han Solo film is set to hit theaters on 2018.
