It seems the search for a young Han Solo is reaching the final stages, as reports are coming in that the Phil Lord and Christopher Miller-helmed Star Wars prequel may have narrowed down a final shortlist.

According to THR, tests were conducted in London last weekend and actors Alden Ehrenreich (Hail, Caesar!), Jack Reynor (Transformers: Age of Extinction), and Taron Egerton (Kingsman, Eddie the Eagle) emerged as front-runners. Plus, Variety adds that Blake Jenner (Glee) and Jack O'Connell (Starred Up, Unbroken) are also in contention.

Apparently a few other names may also be on the list, but they remain under wraps for now.

Whoever winds up nabbing the iconic role will make his debut as the young Han Solo in the Star Wars spinoff, which is scheduled to hit theaters in 2018.
