Principal photography begins this week.
The first image of the cast of the forthcoming Han Solo movie has arrived as principal photography for the movie finally gets underway. We see (almost) the full cast of the 'Star Wars' spin-off getting ready for action as directors Phil Lord and Christopher Miller seize the reins.
Alden Ehrenreich stars in the new Han Solo film
Principal photography began on Monday (February 20th 2017) at London's Pinewood Studios, and the cast and crew celebrated with a little sneak peak of what they've been up to behind the controls of the Millennium Falcon; a shot which producers have captioned 'Smuggler. Scoundrel. Hero. A new Star Wars Story begins'.
The ‘Westworld’ actress could be joining the upcoming spin-off.
Thandie Newton is reportedly in talks for a role in the upcoming Han Solo movie.

Hollywood superstars in the making.
Every year a deluge of new talent floods the movie theatres and 2016 was no different. Some stars, the likes of Sofia Boutella ('Star Trek Beyond'), Travis Fimmel ('Warcraft'), Zoey Deutch ('Why Him?'), Jack Huston ('Ben-Hur') and Aidan Turner ('Poldark'), are the kind of actors that have been around for a while, but have only this year managed to land leading roles. Others have broken through with immense force after almost total obscurity:
Millie Bobby Brown at the 68th Emmy Awards
1. Millie Bobby Brown - Matt and Ross Duffer couldn't have imagined the kind of success their 80s inspired supernatural TV series 'Stranger Things' would have, but arguably the world's favourite thing about that show is Millie Bobby Brown, who plays telekinetic labrat Eleven. For a while it was up in the air as to whether or not she would return for the second series given the mysterious fate of her character in the first season's final episode, but recent confirmations suggest we haven't seen the last of her.

Marla Mabrey could be the next talk of the town, having already made a name for herself by being named the local beauty queen in the small town she grew up in, much bigger things await the brunette beauty. Hollywood is on her doorstep and with a little luck she's about to become one of the biggest actresses the town knows.
The year is 1958 and Marla is accompanied to the city by her mother having grown up in a strict Baptist environment, some people might judge Marla as being a little frigid, especially as the city is just on the brink of a feminist uprising. She doesn't drink, smoke or believe in premarital sex but the city might just loosen Marla up and introduce her to a few vices she never thought she'd take up.

More information on the future Star Wars movies.
It's starting to feel real now; we get the first glimpse of what to expect from 'Star Wars: Episode VIII' and the Han Solo film according to the creators during Star Wars Celebration Europe in London yesterday (July 17th 2016). Of course, details remain scarce as we have a long time to wait yet.
Alden Ehrenreich is Han Solo
'Rogue One: A Star Wars Story' is well on the way to cinemas, but it's 'Star Wars: Episode VIII' and the upcoming as-yet-untitled stand-alone Han Solo film that everyone is most excited about. Filming for the former is well under way but the only information we have for Han Solo is who is playing him (Alden Ehrenreich) and who's directing it (Phil Lord and Chris Miller).

Meet the new 'Star Wars' actor.
Alden Ehrenreich has been selected out of thousands of potential actors to play Han Solo in a forthcoming 'Star Wars' spin-off film featuring the character in his younger days. He'll be taking over from Harrison Ford, who made the role famous and reprised it just recenlty in JJ Abrams' 'Star Wars: The Force Awakens'.
Alden Ehrenreich is Han Solo
This isn't the sequel, however; merely a stand-alone addition to the franchise focusing on Han Solo before he became a part of the Rebel Alliance. Reports have suggested that the film will be called 'Han Solo: A Star Wars Story' and will be set somewhere between 'Episode III' and 'Episode IV'. Phil Lord and Christopher Miller are set to direct with Lawrence Kasdan and son Jon Kasden writing the screenplay, and filming is due to start in January 2017.

The shortlist for the next Han Solo has reportedly narrowed, after a search involving more than 2,500 actors.
We could soon find out who will be playing the young Han Solo in the upcoming Star Wars spin-off movie scheduled for release in 2018. After a search that is said to have included more 2,500 actors, The Hollywood Reporter writes that the list is now down to just three names: Alden Ehrenreich, Jack Reynor and Taron Egerton.
Other names who have been mentioned in connection with the role include, Whiplash and Divergent star Miles Teller, The Fault in Our Stars’ Ansel Elgort, who also appears in the Divergent movies and Emory Cohen, who starred in Brooklyn.
But let’s take a closer look at the rumoured top three contenders...
An intelligent ode to a time when Hollywood made wildly inventive movies without pressure from focus groups, there's a serious edge to what superficially looks like a madcap comical romp. But this isn't one of Joel and Ethan Coen's nutty comedies. It's a pointed exploration of the collision between art and commerce, assembled as a sprawlingly entertaining ensemble movie packed with lively, often hilarious characters.
It's set over 24 hours at Capitol Pictures in 1951 as studio minder Eddie (Josh Brolin) tries to keep several movies in production despite a series of hitches, while twin gossip columnists (two Tilda Swintons) try to get a scoop. Top movie star Baird (George Clooney) has been kidnapped by communist writers from the set of his Roman epic. Water-ballet diva DeeAnna (Scarlett Johansson) is pregnant and unapologetically unmarried. And rising-star Hobie (Alden Ehrenreich) is struggling to make the transition from Western action hero to chamber room drama, clashing with his demanding new director Laurence (Ralph Fiennes). Meanwhile, song-and-dance man Burt (Channing Tatum) is up to something on the set of his sailor musical. With all of this, Eddie begins to think that maybe he should take the offer of a job outside the film industry.
As the movie darts between these various productions, the Coens gleefully reinvent this series of genres that have essentially died out. Yes, the film is a pointed depiction of how Hollywood used to make a wide array of movies for much broader audiences. Each sequence is written and directed with witty details that perfectly catch the way the chaos of a film set can be transformed into a glamorous motion picture in time for the starry red-carpet premiere. And the entire cast rises to the challenge. Clooney is terrific as the dim-witted star who hasn't a clue what's happening around him. Ehrenreich shows real charm as a smart kid struggling in an insane situation. Brolin holds things together in a surprisingly sympathetic role, while Swinton, Johansson and Fiennes add plenty of spark, and the film is stolen by Frances McDormand as a spiky film editor.
