LOS ANGELES, Jan 4: Actor Woody Harrelson is in negotiations to star as Han Solo’s mentor in the “Star Wars” spin-off.
While talks are still in the early stages, Harrelson is the top choice to play the role in the upcoming film starring Alden Ehrenreich in the lead role, reported Variety.
Donald Glover and Emilia Clarke also star, with Phil Lord and Chris Miller attach to direct.
The movie will be set prior to “Star Wars: A New Hope,” like the recently released standalone project, “Rogue One”.
