WESTWORLD Star Thandie Newton Joining Lucasfilm's HAN SOLO Movie
It looks like Westworld star Thandie Newton is going to join the Star Wars universe in Lucasfilm's upcoming Han Solo standalone film. According to Variety, she's currently in negotiations to join the project.
There are no details on who she might play, but I can totally see her hanging around in the shady Star Wars underworld, which is where Han Solo's story takes place. We'll just have to wait and see what side she ends up on. Newton is awesome in Westworld, and she's been great in every other film project that I've seen her in.
She joins the previously cast Alden Ehrenreich, Donald Glover, Woody Harrelson, Emilia Clarke, and Fleabag actress Phoebe Waller-Bridge, who is also currently in talks. The LEGO Movie directors Phil Lord and Chris Miller are currently directing the untitled film. She'll make a great addition to the cast.
The movie is set to hit theaters on May 25, 2018.
