Solo: A Star Wars Story
A tweet, of all things, of a theater chain promotion cup from Arizona over the weekend sparked a flurry of speculation that it gave us the first look at Alden Ehrenreich in costume as Han Solo:
But before you get too excited, it’s actually a photoshop mashup of the filming announcement publicity still of the cast and (now former) directors and, bizarrely, the Han Solo model render from Star Wars: Battlefront. So move along, move along, nothing to see here. [Making Star Wars]
In a recent interview with Collider, Ben Mendelsohn would neither confirm nor deny rumors he’s playing the film’s villain.
Wow, that would be lovely. That would be really nice. But I know that Ryan Fleck and Anna Boden—I think I know how this one got started because they did Mississippi Grind obviously, and I think they’re a great choice and a really interesting choice for that film.”
Well you see a smile because I’m amused that people even bother to ask. Only because it’s one of those things, it’s sort of like being in the secret service for a moment. You can neither confirm nor deny… It would be thrilling, I’m sure.
