Paul Bettany Has Joined The Cast of Ron Howard's HAN SOLO Movie
Avengers star Paul Bettany has joined Lucasfilm's Han Solo movie! Director Ron Howard made the announcement today on Twitter which you can read below. He also posted a photo of himself hanging out with Bettany.
Howard and Battany have worked together twice before in the films A Beautiful Mind and The Da Vinci Code. It's being speculated that Bettany is replacing Michael K. Williams (The Wire), who was recently cut from the film because he couldn't come back and do any of the reshoots due to his schedule.
According to Deadline, though, Bettany is said to be playing a completely different character. Regardless of who he ends up playing, Bettany is a fantastic actor and he's going great in the movie! It's awesome that he has been given the opportunity to jump on board a Star Wars movie like this.
