When Moviefone caught up with X-Men: Days Of Future Past director , they mentioned seeing one of the stars of the movie on some short lists to play Han Solo in Star Wars: Episode VII — The Force Awakens. At this point we don't have extensive knowledge of the list, but apparently 's name is gracing its pages.
The site throws this tidbit out at Singer, who replied with:
I don't know anything, but I literally would not be surprised if something like that happened. I almost said something to Nick today about it, like, "You know, I wouldn't be surprised if you find yourself in one of those." But I have no idea, even though I'm working with Simon Kinberg every day and he is involved with that franchise, I have no information about that. It's just my own intuition.
The Nerdy kid from About a Boy as the smart-assed pirate Han Solo? Put me down for "No [frick]in' way". I like him, but as a young Han? Ummm... Not so much. I see young as young Han Solo.
Who do you see following in Ford's footsteps, if that's even possible?
Star Wars: Episode VII is estimated for release in 2015, while X-Men: Days of Future Past is set for a July 18, 2014 release, and Singer's Jack the Giant Slayer hitting theaters on March 1st of this year.
