Casting Call For The Han Solo Standalone Film, Plus More Casting Notes


The Han Solo standalone film is currently casting, and we have all the information for you. This is your chance to appear in a Star Wars film!

The upcoming Han Solo standalone film might have already cast the main characters, with Alden Ehrenreich taking the role of a young Han Solo, along with Donald Glover sliding into the role of Lando Calrissian. But Lucasfilm is still looking to fill some supporting roles, along with a few good extras. So if you are looking to join a cast that also includes Woody Harrelson and Emilia Clarke, we have the lowdown for you thanks to Omega Underground.

In an unconfirmed casting call for a film with the working title “Red Cup” (which we assume is a nod to Red Solo Cups), Lucasfilm notes that principal photography will begin in February of this year with shoots in London and other undisclosed locations throughout the United Kingdom. The casting call says that most of the supporting roles are being filled through casting agencies; Hubbard Casting appears to be the lead agency in that regard.

Those interested in joining the film can send photos and resumes to the following addresses.

United States:

Additionally, if the casting call is to be believed, Emilia Clarke has been cast in the film’s lead female role. That’s not Earth shattering news but is an interesting tidbit nonetheless. Also interesting that filming will take place “undisclosed locations” in the United Kingdom, in addition to filming at London’s Pinewood Studios. Pinewood is, of course, the same studio where both The Force Awakens and Rogue One were filmed.
