Alden Ehrenreich Is Han Solo Now
After sifting through thousands of actors, Disney has finally cast Alden Ehrenreich as Han Solo because they’re printing so much money with these things, you don’t even need to know who the actors are. You already bought the ticket. Who are you kidding? Page Six reports:
The Han Solo spinoff is being produced and scripted by Lawrence Kasdan — who co-wrote “The Empire Strikes Back,” “Return of the Jedi” and “The Force Awakens” — with his son Jon Kasdan, Deadline reported. Lucasfilm president Kathleen Kennedy is also producing.
Kasdan said in a recent Q&A that the spinoff would not delve into the origins of Solo — “It will not be, ‘Here’s where he was born and this is how he was raised.’ I think what it will be is, ‘What was he like 10 years earlier?’ . . . But [legendary Japanese filmmaker Akira] Kurosawa once said the heroes are the ones that are still changing and the villains are locked and petrified into what they are.”
Of course, the important news is that Disney didn’t cast Miles Teller or Dave Franco presumably because of all those letters I wrote about a nerd fatwa. I mean, Photo Boy wrote. I don’t even have personalized Darth Vader stationary with little lightsaber pens! *dives out window*
