The Edge of Seventeen

Han Solo: Woody Harrelson (The Edge of Seventeen, above) is in early talks to play Han Solo's mentor in the upcoming Star Wars spin-off movie. Reportedly, he is the top choice for the role, though it's far from a done deal. If things work out, Harrelson would join Alden Ehrenreich, Donald Glover and Emilia Clarke. The movie, which will be directed by Phil Lord and Chris Miller, is set for release in 2018. [Variety]

 

Paterson / Creed

Tough As They Come: Adam Driver (Paterson, above) and Sylvester Stallone (Creed, above) will star in Tough As They Come. Stallone is also attached to direct. It's based on a memoir by Travis Mills (Driver), who was severely injured in battle and then had to cope with life as a quadruple amputee, aided by the support of his father-in-law (Stallone). Driver is himself a military veteran. [Deadline]
