I recently reported on the fact that as of now, there are plans to make a Star Wars movie every year each year for the rest of time? Literally. That contract currently exists.
But the most pressing concern for those in the Lucasfilm camp is to figure out who will play a young Han Solo in the planned Star Wars spin-off film that will feature Han Solo's origin story.
There have been 2,500 people who've auditioned, probably most notably including Ansel Elgort, Dave Franco, Tom Felton, Leo Howard, Logan Lerman, Jack Reynor, Max Thieriot, Miles Teller and Rami Malek.
Apparently, they're open to almost anyone, though. Here's what an agent with a client who has auditioned had to say about it:
"This has been the easiest movie to audition for. They are seeing everyone."
Here's a funny image that The Hollywood Reporter put together of some of the possible Hans...
What do you think?
Also, speaking of Han Solo, here's a wild clip from the Star Wars Holiday Special in case you missed it...
Here are my personal top 3...
3. Chandler Riggs
The Walking Dead actor would be awesome in a leading role.
2. Tom Felton
I personally would love to see Felton back in the limelight. He was an excellent Draco Malfoy, but I would much prefer to see him finally with a decent soul. Not to say Draco didn't absolve himself a bit towards the end of Harry Potter, though.
1. Colton Haynes
Dude is low-key gorgeous. Plug the man in, he can get the job done...
