Disney and Lucasfilm are reportedly testing approximately 2,500 actors for the role of young Han Solo for their Star Wars prequel. But with actors from 16 to 31 year-old reportedly in the running, how old is Solo in the film? Screenwriter Lawrence Kasdan comments.

Long-time Star Wars scribe Lawrence Kasdan (who also contributed to the Star Wars: The Force Awakens script) recently spoke to Indiewire and revealed that Han Solo's prequel film will take place roughly 10 years before Star Wars: A New Hope. Said Kasdan, "[The film] 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 [than A New Hope]—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."

With Star Wars throwing out the Expanded Universe, it's unclear how much the film may borrow from The Han Solo Trilogy sci-fi novels which fleshed out the character from his days as a pickpocket street urchin to competitive, racing pilot.

Phil Lord and Christopher Miller are directing the film which will be released on May 25, 2018 release.

Yep. And that's part of the fucking problem.

the only reason I'm interested in this movie at this point is the directors. This was pretty far down my list of 'stories that I think need to be told'

Yeah, I must admit Lord & Miller have me curious. Even though I haven't much cared for their films so far, I feel like they are talented, funny guys who haven't found the right material yet (At least in terms of movies - The Last Man on Earth was great.).

Change "directors" to "special FX and music," and we're on the same page.

Sometimes a great movie is made from the pretty lights and cool sounds.

As you no doubt are aware, Joey, given the careful study you've made of the human condition, all people have a brief period where they experience growth, and then remain static for the rest of their lives, not reacting in any way to people, events, or any other external stimuli that could regress, challenge, or further transform them

There's a difference between "remaining static" and "fuck all that shit I just went through; Imma go back to how I used to be."

I imagine that your son turning into an evil murderous supervillian (which was the clearly established cause of their separation) can put a lot of strain on your marriage, especially when one suffers from wanderlust and the other is a workaholic.

Yeah, but the problem is that they chose to go with that narrative in the first place.
