Alden Ehrenreich (Beautiful Creatures, Hail Caesar!) is playing the young Han Solo in the prequel to the original trilogy.  Production is scheduled to start in early 2017.  Phil Lord and Chris Miller will direct.  The movie is set to be released in May 2018.

No word yet if Lando Calrissian will be cast in this movie, but there is a big push for Donald Glover (Community, Atlanta) to take on the role of the smooth talker.
