Woody Harrelson Is "Top Choice" To Play HAN SOLO's Mentor In The Upcoming STAR WARS Anthology Movie

Apparently, Woody Harrelson is being eyed for the key role of Han Solo's mentor in Phil Lord and Chris Miller's take on the early life of the iconic space smuggler. More details after the jump...

According to Variety, Woody Harrelson (War for the Planet of the Apes, The Hunger Games, Zombieland) is in talks to play an unnamed mentor for the younger incarnation of Han Solo, who will be played by Hail, Caesar! actor Alden Ehrenreich. Apparently discussions are in the very early stages, but Harrelson is the "top choice" for the role right now. If he signs on, he'll join an already very impressive cast that also includes Emilia Clarke and Donald Glover.

No details on this character are provided, but one would assume he'd also be a smuggler of some sort if he's Solo's mentor.

Kathleen Kennedy and Allison Shearmur are producing the Han Solo standalone flick, which is expected to begin production in January, and is currently set to hit theaters on May 25, 2018.
