Sources tell Variety the actress is in negotiations to join the upcoming Han Solo spinoff, starring Alden Ehrenreich.
I really liked her in Interview with the Vampire and more recently Westworld. This is good news. She’s known but not overly exposed and a solid actor. This is our second piece of casting news this week as we heard about another actor up to play a CGI character.
We’re starting to see the movie’s cast come together and to have a feel for it. Thandie Newton is the first of recent casting news to not be known as a comedic actor like Glover, Harrelson, and Phoebe Waller-Bridge.
