The 'Star Wars' Franchise Is Getting a Standalone Han Solo Movie

FUSE TV - The 'Star Wars' Franchise Is Getting a Standalone Han Solo Movie

Your eyes work. I swear to god. The words you're reading—Han Solo; spinoff—are real. Really, really real.

The Hollywood Reporter has sources saying one of the upcoming Star Wars movies—one of the ones set to pad out the years between the new trilogy, Episode VII (gonna be sooooo goooood), VIII and IX—will be a Han Solo standalone film. **clears throat** I SAID A HAN SOLO STANDALONE FILM. 

The movie will reportedly detail the life of a young Han, presumably a brash, handsome, on-the-come-up smuggler, one who's years away from commanding the Millennium Falcon, smirking through conversations about the Force and shooting Greedo first. (Click that red X in the corner if you want to quibble with that last one.)

THR says Phil Lord and Christopher Miller are in talks to direct. They're the unstoppable director duo behind The Lego Movie, 21 Jump Street and its incredible sequel and Cloudy With a Chance of Meatballs (also quite good!). These are the guys who cocreated Clone High, and they have heavy hands in Fox's excellent series The Last Man on Earth and Brooklyn Nine-Nine. Lord and Miller's names have recently been batted around with new Flash and Spider-Man movies.
