Woody Harrelson might soon be heading to a galaxy far, far away.
According to Variety, the actor – best known in recent years as Haymitch Abernathy in The Hunger Games trilogy – is in talks to join the upcoming Han Solo spin-off, starring Alden Ehrenreich, as Solo’s mentor. Also starring Donald Glover as a young Lando Calrissian and Emilia Clarke, the film is set to take place before A New Hope as the other standalone films have.
Expected to begin production this month, the newest film in the Star Wars franchise currently has a release date of May 25, 2018. In fact, earlier today, Twitter user Nico Sotomayor snapped a photo of who appears to be Harrison Ford himself and Ehrenreich at lunch (brunch?) possibly discussing the film! Check out the photo below!
