We may not be seeing Alden Ehrenreich reprise the role of Han Solo anytime soon, but he’s set to star as another dystopian hero in the adaptation of Brave New World. The series has apparently begun shooting already, and this was confirmed by series writer Grant Morrison.
This was his post:
This is a series description from Variety:
“Brave New World” imagines a utopian society that has achieved peace and stability through the prohibition of monogamy, privacy, money, family, and history itself. As citizens of New London, Bernard Marx and Lenina Crowne have only ever known a rigid social order, a perfect pharmaceutical called Soma, and a culture of instant gratification and ubiquitous sex. Curious to explore life beyond the strictures of their society, the two New Worlders embark on a vacation to the Savage Lands, where they become embroiled in a harrowing and violent rebellion. Bernard and Lenina are rescued by John the Savage (Ehrenreich), who escapes with them back to New London.
I thought that Ehrenreich did a fantastic job in Solo: A Star Wars Story, and it’s kind of a shame that Lucasfilm had put that franchise on hold. We don’t know what to expect with Brave New World yet, but Ehrenreich has already proven himself to be a good actor. Besides Solo, he also did a fantastic job in the Coen Brothers’ Hail, Caesar!. I can’t wait to see what he brings to his “John the Savage” performance.
We don’t have a release date for Brave New World yet, but with the show already in production, we could get a release late 2020 or early 2021.
