Oficial: Woody Harrelson se une al filme de HAN SOLO

Luego de que se rumorara durante estas últimas semanas, hoy Lucasfilm confirmó que el veterano actor Woody Harrelson se ha unido al elenco del filme de un joven HAN SOLO.

Conocido por filmes como The Hunger Games, No Country for Old Men y Zombieland, al igual que por su trabajo en televisión como Cheers y True Detectives, Harrelson próximamente podrá ser visto batallar a Caesar en la secuela War For The Planet of the Apes. El veterano actor se une a un elenco impresionante que cuenta ya con Alden Ehrenreich, Donald Glover y Emilia Clarke.

El segundo spin-off del universo de Star Wars contará la historia de un joven Han Solo, donde veremos los eventos previo a los sucesos de A New Hope. Será dirigida por Phil Lord y Christopher Miller, y estrenará en el 2018.

Aquí el comunicado oficial de Lucasfim:

Veteran film and television actor Woody Harrelson is stepping aboard the upcoming Han Solo movie set to arrive in theaters next year.

Harrelson, known for wide-ranging roles in film and TV such as The Hunger Games, No Country For Old Men, True Detective, Cheers, and Zombieland, will join actors Alden Ehrenreich (Han Solo), Donald Glover (Lando Calrissian), and Emilia Clarke in the adventure. This Star Wars Story is the second in a series of films that live outside the Skywalker family saga, and is set during the early scoundrel days of the iconic characters, prior to A New Hope.

“We couldn’t be more excited to work with an artist with as much depth and range as Woody,” said the film’s directors Phil Lord and Christopher Miller. “His ability to find both humor and pathos, often in the same role, is truly unique. He is also very good at ping pong.”

The as-yet-untitled movie, which is being produced by Kathleen Kennedy, Allison Shearmur, and Simon Emanuel, is scheduled for release in 2018.
