He is relatively unknown but already has 18 credits under his name, the actor will play the rebellious and skeptical legendary Han Solo in a new anthology series about the character.
Alden Ehrenreich To Play As Young Han Solo
The 28 year old actor and Disney/Lucas Film not only has received a lot of positive feedback for the casting, but also some negative ones. Many complained that Ehrenreich looks nothing like Harrison Ford.
The plot of the first film is under wraps. However, The Wrap reveals that “the film is expected to follow Solo before he links up with the rebel alliance. Chewbacca will play a key role, and it’s entirely possible that young Han Solo could cross paths with the bounty hunter known as Boba Fett.” The movie is slated to be released on May 25, 2018. The movie will be directed by film making duo Phil Lord and Christopher Miller from Lawrence and Jon Kasdan’s script.
The actor also has two new upcoming productions.
Fellow actor Dave Franco also auditioned for the coveted role and even discussed about it when the news came out that Ehrenreich was the front runner.
