‘Han Solo’ film adds Michael K Williams as production continues

As the production gets underway, the Han Solo film has made a new addition in the form of Michael K. Williams. According to a new report from Variety, Williams will be joining Alden Ehrenreich and Donald Glover in an undisclosed role.

“Details about Williams’ character are unknown, as are plot details for the movie, other then it being an origin tale of the rogue smuggler,” their exclusive report states.

The cast will also include Thandie Newton, Phoebe Waller-Bridge, Woody Harrelson and Emilia Clarke and the film will be directed by Phil Lord and Chris Miller. Jon and Lawrence Kasdan are penning the script.

In a more humorous description, Slash Film notes that “Ehrenreich leads the cast as the scruffy-looking nerf herder, and Glover is his smooth-talking buddy Lando Calrissian. Also starring are Emilia Clarke in a mysterious female lead role, Woody Harrelson as the mentor to the young Solo, Phoebe Waller-Bridge as a female droid, and Joonas Suotamo as Chewbacca. Thandie Newton has an undisclosed role in the movie as well.”

Williams is most famous for his roles on HBO: Omar on HBO’s The Wire and then Chalky on Boardwalk Empire. His supporting roles in the films include The LandTriple 9, Captive, GhostbustersWhen the Bough Breaks, and Assassin’s Creed.

The Star Wars spin-off takes place before the original movie “A New Hope,” similar to the recent spinoff, “Rogue One: A Star Wars Story.”

The untitled Han Solo movie hits theaters May 25, 2018.
