Pheobe Waller-Bridge in Talks for Major Role in 'Han Solo'
After receiving critical acclaim for her work on the Amazon series Fleabag, Pheobe Waller-Bridge is in talks for a key role in the upcoming Han Solo Star Wars spinoff, which has already kicked off filming and stars Alden Ehrenreich, Donald Glover, and Emilia Clark.
The role would be a CGI-performance, but reportedly still a significant role in the ensemble. CGI has long been an integral part of the franchise, bringing some of its most iconic characters, so it's certainly not a limiting opportunity.
Kathleen Kennedy and Allison Shearmur are producing the film, which is set for a May 25, 2018 release date. It will be set prior to Star Wars: A New Hope in the same way as Rogue One, though maybe we shouldn't expect it to tie quite so seamlessly into the opening of the fourth Star Wars episode.
