New Star Wars Spin Off

Woody Harrelson has been officially cast in the currently untitled Star Wars spin-off about the young Han Solo.

The film’s co-directors, Phil Lord and Christopher Miller, said they “couldn’t be more excited to work with an artist with as much depth and range”.

Donald Glover, who won a Golden Globe on Sunday for his US TV show Atlanta, will play the young Lando Calrissian opposite Alden Ehrenreich’s Han.

Emilia Clarke will also appear in the film, scheduled for release in 2018.
