Solo: A Star Wars Story actor Alden Ehrenreich has certainly been feeling very chatty lately, and the mouth of the actor playing a young Han Solo as a hot shot flyboy who wants to be the best pilot in the galaxy may have just written a check Lucasfilm hopes his body will cash. Moments ago, we published a story about his take on the huge shake-ups that Solo went through, and now we’re happy to share a small tease that the actor let slip about his future in the titular role.
While it’s been reported and rumored before that the studio signed Ehrenreich up for multiple appearances as everyone’s favorite scruffy-looking nerf herder, Esquire managed to get the actor to confirm that this may not be the last we see of him as Han Solo. Here’s what he said when asked if he’d signed a three-picture deal:
“I don’t know if that’s officially, uh, public. But — yeah.“
This could mean a lot, or it could mean absolutely nothing. As we know from past examples, Lucasfilm also signed Rogue One star Felicity Jones to a multi-picture deal and, as of now, that’s amounted to nada.
So the studio enlisting Ehrenreich for up to three movies may just be an option they’d like to have available to them if they decide that there’s an appetite out there for more young Han Solo appearances.
If that’s the case, it’ll all come down to how people take to his work in Solo: A Star Wars Story when the film arrives on May 25.
What do you think? Would you like for Solo to remain…solo? Or would you like to see more adventures with the character, possibly leading right up to the moment he enters that cantina in Mos Eisley? Be sure to sound off in the comments below!
