Emilia Clarke Joins the Star Wars Franchise with 'Han Solo'
Emilia Clarke is famed for her role as Daenerys Targaryen in HBO's Game of Thrones, but is coming off recent roles in Terminator: Genisys and Me Before You. Now, she's taking the next genuine step into blockbuster filmmaking, joining the upcoming Han Solo film from director's Phil Lord and Chris Miller.
Clarke joins Aldren Ehrenreich and Donald Glover, who play Han Solo and Lando Calrissian respectively. The film is slated for 2018, and production is set to start relatively soon.
Her role has yet to be revealed, though should it take cues from the Marvel comic book series, she may be playing a female lead role as Han Solo's wife, before he met Princess Leia of course.
