Alden Ehrenreich Chosen as the Next Han Solo
Alden Ehrenreich, who recently starred in Hail, Caesar!, has been chosen to play Han Solo in Lucasfilm's yet-untitled Star Wars spinoff movie. Reports are that the actor beat out others including Miles Teller, Ansel Elgort, Taron Egerton, and Scott Eastwood.  

Last year, Harrison Ford offered some advice for the next actor to play the famous Captain of the Millennium Falcon, saying, "I would say, ‘Talk to your director. Watch the movies. And welcome aboard. Make it your own.'"

The film, which will be directed by Phil Lord and Chris Miller, is slated for a May 25, 2018 release.
