Westworld Star in Talks to Join Han Solo Standalone Film

Thandie Newton Han Solo movie

Alden Ehrenreich (Hail, Caesar!) stars as a young Han Solo in the era before Star Wars: A New Hope, before he met Leia and Luke and embarked on a galaxy-saving adventure.

Thandie Newton is reportedly in talks for a role in the upcoming Han Solo movie. Thandie Newton of the "Westworld" series is now in the talks of joining the cast.

The last film in the "Star Wars" franchise, "Rogue One", crossed the $1 billion worldwide box office benchmark and has grossed over $500 million at the domestic box office.

The untitled Han Solo film, directed by Phil Lord and Christopher Miller, is set for a release in 2019. And while Newton has played heroines like Tom Cruise's partner in Mission Impossible 2, it's her ability to play badass, attractive ladies that get her a lot of attention. Aside from the series being good overall, Newton was also great acting out her role. Donald Glover (The Martian) also stars as Lando Calrissian, with Woody Harrelson (Zombieland) and Emilia Clarke (Game of Thrones) in as-yet-unrevealed co-starring roles.

On the HBO show (produced by Star Wars: The Force Awakens director J.J. Abrams), Newton plays Maeve, a mysterious host who runs a brothel but becomes self-aware and tries to escape. Clarke will be playing a main female character but that has yet to be elaborated.
