Film makers Disney and Lucasfilm are getting closer to picking the actor for the coveted role of young Han Solo.

The list has been narrowed down to Miles Teller, Ansel Elgort, Dave Franco, Jack Reynor, Scott Eastwood, Logan Lerman, Brooklyn star Emory Cohen and Everybody Wants Some actor Blake Jenner are among the names making the cut.

The film is set to shoot next January. The early decision was made due to filming conflicts with another Star Wars film currently shooting, rather than the untitled “Han Solo” pic. The new Solo could even have a small cameo in Rogue One: A Star Wars before appearing in his own movie.

With the exception of Eastwood, who’s 29, Disney and Lucasfilm seem to be homing in on actors between the ages of 20 to 25. The studios tested actors as young as 17 to as old as 34.
