Disney and Lucasfilm are closer to finding their young Han Solo for an untitled Star Wars spinoff.
According to Variety, the studios have narrowed the list down to about 12 actors that include Miles Teller, Ansel Elgort, Dave Franco, Jack Reynor, Scott Eastwood, Logan Lerman, Emory Cohen and Blake Jenner.
The site goes on to say that producer Kathleen Kennedy and directors Phil Lord and Chris Miller will begin testing the group with a decision expected within the next couple of weeks.
The Star Wars spinoff doesn’t begin filming until next January, but according to Variety the focus on casting a young Han Solo has to do with another Star Wars film that is currently filming, which could be Star Wars: Rogue One. With that film set to take place between “Episode III” and “Episode IV,” that would make sense for the character’s age at that time.
The untitled Star Wars spinoff is slated for a May 25, 2018 release.
