Woody Harrelson spoke to Mashable about the Han Solo movie and shed some light on his role in the much-anticipated Star Wars spin-off.
“I’m a mentor to Han, but I’m also a bit of a criminal,” said Harrelson. “I don’t think I’ll have a lot of make-up or anything. We’ll see how that look develops. I’m meeting with those guys tomorrow, the hair and make-up and stunts and everything. We’ll just have a little discussion about that.”
This Star Wars Story is the second in a series of films that live outside the Skywalker family saga, and is set during the early scoundrel days of the iconic characters, prior to A New Hope.
“We couldn’t be more excited to work with an artist with as much depth and range as Woody,” said the film’s directors Phil Lord and Christopher Miller. “His ability to find both humor and pathos, often in the same role, is truly unique. He is also very good at ping pong.”
Han Solo movie is scheduled for release in 2018.
