Variety reports that Thandie Newton is in talks for a part in the Han Solo film coming in 2018. There are no details yet on which type person she will play in Han Solo’s universe.
Sources tell Variety the actress is in negotiations to join the upcoming Han Solo spinoff, starring Alden Ehrenreich.
Donald Glover, Woody Harrelson and Emilia Clarke co-star in the Disney-Lucasfilm feature, with Phil Lord and Chris Miller directing.
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.
