Variety are reporting that Westworld star Thandie Newton is in talks to join the, as yet untitled, Han Solo movie...
Miss. Newton is the second actress to be rumoured for a part in the new Star Wars spin off in as many weeks. Variety are reporting that the actress is "in negations" for the part.
I recently binge watched the first season of Westworld and I'd suggest that Thandie was one of its strongest elements. It's a role that secured her a Golden Globe and two SAG nominations. I would also recommend Thandie's episodes of ER, another show I rewatched recently, in which she gives an incredibly moving performance. (I will not spoil that arc here).
Han Solo is currently filming under the working title Red Cup, and features Alden Ehrenreich, Donald Glover, Emilia Clarke and Woody Harrelson and hits theatres in 2018.
