Paul Bettany is working on Ron Howard’s untitled Han Solo Star Wars story!

Ron Howard has announced via Twitter that Paul Bettany is working on the untitled Han Solo Star Wars story. As the tweets indicate, Howard worked with Bettany on A Beautiful Mind. You may also know him as Vision from Marvel Cinematic Universe and the voice of JARVIS from the Iron Man films.

Check out director Ron Howard’s tweets:

THR seems to imply that Bettany is replacing Michael K. Williams:

Bettany’s casting comes two weeks after the production lost Michael K. Williams, as his schedule could not accommodate the extensive reshoots Howard has been overseeing.

Or is it just a fun fact placed in the piece because it pertains to casting and is simply food for thought? Williams was supposedly playing an alien and if the plans didn’t change, Bettany appears to be a human in the film so I would guess not.

We’ll have more on the young Han Solo film soon.
