It was rumored via NewYorkDailyNews that Solo actor Alden Ehrenreich had signed a three-picture deal with Lucasfilm and he has seemingly confirmed this with Esquire.
He knows what he’s getting into. It’s a deeper commitment than just one movie. Even Ford couldn’t quit after just one. I ask Ehrenreich how many he’s signed up for. “Three,” he says, then flinches, understanding he may have just created a disturbance in the Force. “I don’t know if that’s officially, uh, public. But—yeah.” Anyway: Between auditions for Solo, Ehrenreich took a trip out to Death Valley. “I stayed in, like, a high-end tepee, which you can rent out there,” he says. “I’m making myself sound a lot more rugged than I actually am. I’m also getting green juices delivered to the tepee.”
It remains to be seen if these films will be Solo sequels or other Star Wars anthology films such as a Boba Fett movie that has been in gestation for years.
