Han Solo Star Wars Story Seeks Female Lead
Directors Phil Lord and Chris Miller are putting together the cast for the Han Solo film. With Alden Ehrenreich set to star as Han Solo himself, and Donald Glover rumoured for a younger Lando Calrissian, we set our eyes to a female lead.
Mashable reports that the search for a female lead is down to four women, "none of whom are white." This may be Sana Solo, a woman from a heist during Han's youth in which she played his wife as a cover, but who took the vows too seriously and tracked down Han in the comic book canon that follows the events of A New Hope.
We can't confirm anything just yet, but there should be news shortly on casting by the sounds of it. Shooting is set to commence next year.
