We cannot get enough of our favorite galactic smuggler.
In a couple extensive interviews with Lawrence Kasdan, he revealed further details on the single “Han Solo” project to be directed by Phil Lord and Chris Miller.
The film will be focused on the younger Solo that will take place at least ten years before “Star Wars: A New Hope.”
"It will not be here’s where he was born and this is how he was raised. I think what it will be is, what was he like 10 years earlier, maybe a little earlier, you’ll get a glimpse. But Kurosawa once said the heroes are the ones that are still changing and the villains are locked and petrified into what they are. And Harrison embodies in 'Force Awakens' someone who is still not settled on who he is," Kasdan said.
It’s too bad Harrison Ford will be out of this picture as Lucasfilm is currently seeking a new and younger Han Solo in the high teens, low 20s.
Kasdan is currently writing the screenplay along with Jon Kasdan. It will focus on how the young Han Solo became the smuggler, thief and scoundrel—before he was deemed as the hero of the rebellion.
