Paul Bettany Joining HAN SOLO As Per Ron Howard

Paul Bettany Joining HAN SOLO As Per Ron Howard

Director Ron Howard revealed on his Twitter account that actor Paul Bettany has joined the cast of the standalone Han Solo film. Howard took a photo alongside Bettany on set with the title: “The Outer Rim just got a bit wilder.” Howard and Bettany have collaborated together on two other films, which include A Beautiful Mind and The Da Vinci Code. Bettany is the newest addition to the cast that includes Alden Ehrenreich, Woody Harrelson, Emilia Clarke, Donald Glover, Thandie Newton, Warwick Davis and Phoebe Waller-Bridge.

Howard has been knee-deep in principal photography all summer for the Star Wars spinoff after replacing original directors Phil Lord and Christopher Miller. Howard was brought in after Lucasfilm’s president Kathleen Kennedy fired Lord and Miller over creative differences with screenwriter Lawrence Kasdan. Howard has since been reshooting the whole movie with the main cast with the exception of new cast members Paul Bettany, Warwick Davis, and Clint Howard.

Disney and Lucasfilm’s untitled Han Solo film is still set for a May 25th, 2018 release date.
