Disney and Lucasfilm already have a shorter shortlist of actors being considered to play the role of young Han Solo for the Star Wars spinoff film, but it seems the studios are still having a difficult time choosing who could match Harrison Ford's legacy as Han Solo.

For such an iconic role, people would think that the actors who want to try their luck at getting the part may be given difficult auditions but it seems the opposite is true. One of the rumored shortlisted actors, Dave Franco, speculates that the reason the studios are having difficulty casting is because of the direction they want to take Han's character.

"I think that's the reason it's so hard to cast this role... Do they want someone to completely embody who Harrison Ford is? Or do they want to go a different route? [...] I think they're struggling with that," Franco said in an interview.

Of course, without knowing what the studio wants, the young actors who want the role could only guess how to portray the character but Franco admitted that he added a little twist to his interpretation of Han Solo.

So far, Alden Ehrenreich is still the rumored top pick for young Han Solo but since everything about the project is still pretty much top secret, we can only assume that it is still really anyone's game for now.

If there is one thing for certain, however, it is that the studios should really decide which among the celebrities they want to play the part if the rumored Han Solo's cameo appearance in Rogue One: A Star Wars Story is true. After all, filming for Rogue One should wrap up soon enough so the urgency is there.

So is it Ehrenreich or is the studio also looking at someone else? We'll just have to hope that the official announcement will be out soon.

Rogue One: A Star Wars Story will bring the battle to cinemas on Dec. 17 and the still-untitled Han Solo spinoff is scheduled to shoot first before flying off to cinemas on May 25, 2018.
