In May, it became known that the role of Han Solo in the solo film of the famous smuggler will be performed by Alden Ehrenreich. Last month, upcoming film producer Kathleen Kennedy confirmed this information, and now, according to The Wrap , she and directors Phil Lord and Chris Miller are looking for an actor to play Lando Calrissian .|
In the original trilogy, Lando first appeared on screen in Star Wars: Episode 5 - The Empire Strikes Back. Thanks to the mentions and references, the viewer learned his story even before the appearance of actor Billy Dee Williams. It is known that Han and Lando are old acquaintances who have gone through more than one adventure together. The Millennium Falcon Solo beat Calrissian . The gambling enthusiast also featured in Star Wars: Episode 6 - Return of the Jedi, in which he got the opportunity to pilot a ship that once belonged to him and help the main characters crush the Empire.
As for potential performers of the young Lando , the publication mentions Donald Glover - a musician and actor who became famous on television and slowly conquers the cinema screens. The recent appearance in The Martian is to be followed by a role in the rebooted Spider-Man, which is slated for release next summer. At the moment, Donald is the only candidate that the portal writes about, calling him the first and main contender for the role. However, no official confirmation of the casting of Glover has been received yet.
According to the script, written by Lawrence and John Kasdanami, along with Calrissian and Solo , Chewbacca , a friend and partner of the protagonist, should also appear in the film. The film tells how the young Khan became a first-class pilot, whom Luke Skywalker and Obi-Wan Kenobi met in the Mos Eisley cantina .
The spin-off is due to begin filming in January or February in order for it to hit theaters on May 24, 2018 .
