Chris Miller and Phil Lord are putting together a pretty impressive cast for their upcoming Star Wars movie Han Solo, with Variety reporting that Thandie Newton—who recently gained wide recognition for her work as rebellious robot Maeve on HBO’s Westworld—is in talks to join the film. There’s no information on which part Newtown might play, but she’d be joining a cast that includes Alden Ehrenreich, Emilia Clarke, Woody Harrelson, and Donald Glover as Lando Calrissian. (Fleabag star Phoebe Waller-Bridge is also apparently in talks for a role.) Han Solo is currently scheduled to come out some time in 2018.
