Aaron Paul Reportedly Eyeing ‘Star Wars’ Spin-Off Film


Aaron Paul is reportedly in talks to lead the cast of the first Star Wars spin-off film.

The former Breaking Bad star is set to sign up for a role in the as-yet-untitled movie centring around a young Han Solo, according to Star Wars news website Making Star Wars.

While it is unclear what part Paul would potentially play, many fans have suggested he bears a striking resemblance to Harrison Ford, who played Solo in the original film trilogy.

The project will be helmed by Godzilla director Gareth Edwards, and slated for release in December, 2016, a year after Star Wars: Episode VII The Force Awakens hits cinemas.

The casting news comes after Paul took on the role of Luke Skywalker in a live reading of Star Wars: Episode V – The Empire Strikes Back earlier this month.
