Lucasfilm has announced that True Detective / Hunger Games‘s Woody Harrelson has been drafted to appear in the upcoming Han Solo: A Star Wars Story movie. His exact role is still not yet know for the Star Wars film slated for release in 2018.
The Solo film will follow the adventures of the rogue-ish smuggler
/ intergalactic sugar man dash mule in his early days before the events of George Lucas’ original 1977 Star Wars.
Film’s directors Phil Lord and Christopher Miller (The LEGO Movie) said in a statement:
We couldn’t be more excited to work with an artist with as much depth and range as Woody. His ability to find both humor and pathos, often in the same role, is truly unique. He is also very good at ping pong.
Good to know. Good. To. Know.
