Han Solo standalone to become a trilogy?

July 26th, 2016 by Marc Comments


Is the Han Solo standalone film set to become a trilogy?

Well, according to Confidenti@l, via the The New York Daily News, actor Alden Ehrenreich, who’s been confirmed as playing our favourite scoundrel, has signed a three-picture deal, paving the way for more Han Solo film if the one currently being written becomes a box office success.

A NY Daily News insider said: “There is a real sense of excitement around the Han Solo movie and its potential. Given that Han’s early adventures do not need to be tied to the Empire, it leaves story lines open with the opportunity to really give fans something different. They can explore new galaxies and crazy creatures and bring in a wide array of new characters.”

The first film will be helmed by ‘Lego Movie’ and ‘Jump Street’ directors Phil Lord and Christopher Miller.

Marc is a self-confessed nerd. Ever since seeing Star Wars for the first time around 1979 he’s been an unapologetic fan of the Wars and still believes, with Clone Wars and now Underworld, we are yet to see the best Star Wars. He’s a dad of two who now doesn’t have the time (or money) to collect the amount of toys, comics, movies and books he once did, much to the relief of his long-suffering wife. In the real world he’s a graphic designer. He started Following the Nerd because he was tired of searching a million sites every day for all the best news that he loves and decided to create one place where you can go to get the whole lot. Secretly he longs to be sitting in the cockpit of his YT-1300 Corellian Transport ship with his co-pilot Chewie, roaming the universe, waiting for his next big adventure, but feels just at home watching cartoons with his kids….
