If you've ever wanted to know where Han Solo's laid back attitude came from, we're roughly two years away from finding out that he learned it from his mentor played by Woody Harrelson. That's right, folks. The upcoming Han Solo movie that's getting pushed back to December, 2018, is likely going to feature Woody in what's being described as a "mentor role."
According to Variety, Harrelson is the first and only choice for this crucial role in the film who will help to shape and mold Han Solo into the character we all know and love. Odds are he'll be dressed exactly like Han Solo in A New Hope, since we have to know from where Han got his fashion sense. In fact, I've acquired the final page of the script for the Han Solo spinoff movie... Enjoy!
EXT. Mos Eisley Spaceport.
The Millennium Falcon lands in the spot where it's parked when we first see it in A New Hope. Han, Chewie, and Woody step off the ship.
Han, you seem to have a death wish. When Lando figures out that you cheated at sabacc and essentially just stole the Millennium Falcon from him, there will be nowhere in the galaxy for you to hide.
Well, how about we hide in here for a while...
He indicates the famous Mos Eisley cantina. Chewie roars
I don't care what you smell, we're going in there!
INT. Mos Eisely Cantina. Han and Chewie walk to the table where we first meet them in A New Hope.
Alright listen Han, you've got a lot of decisions to make. I'm going to the bathroom and when I get out, we're gonna finish our drinks and get the hell off Tatooine before Jabba finds out we're here.
Woody walks to the bathroom and we follow him as Luke, Obi-Wan, and the two droids walk into the cantina.
INT. Mos Eisley Cantina's men's room. Woody gets into the bathroom and there's a pretty substantial line. Woody sighs.
INT. Mos Eisley Cantina. We see Han strolling out of the cantina after killing Greedo, just after he tosses money to the bartender. Seconds after he leaves, Woody emerges from the bathroom and sees Walrus Man's severed arm on the ground. His eyes dart over to the table where he sees the smoking corpse of Greedo. Woody's face turns from confused to angry. He runs to the door.
EXT. Mos Eisley Spaceport. Woody comes running out of the cantina just in time to see the Falcon speed away.
(Screaming to the heavens) HAAAAAAAAAAAAN!
