With just over a month until the film’s release, Empire Magazine has revealed a brand new look at Paul Bettany as the villainous Dryden Vos in Solo: A Star Wars Story.
Directed by Ron Howard, Solo is the second Star Wars spin-off following Rogue One. The film dials back the clock to chronicle Han Solo during the early years of his life as he proves himself as a criminal, meets Chewbacca and acquires the Millennium Falcon from a young Lando Calrissian.
Details about Bettany’s Vos are being kept under wraps. The character was originally portrayed by Michael K. Williams, but that changed after Howard was brought on board to replace Phil Lord and Chris Miller.

10 Potential Directors For The New ‘Star Wars’ Films From David Benioff & D.B. Weiss
Star Wars has been in the news quite a bit lately. Star Wars: The Last Jedi was the biggest (and most divisive) film of the year. Solo: A Star Wars Story finally released a trailer that lit up social media. Now, Lucasfilm has announced that Game of Thrones creators David Benioff and D.B. Weiss have signed on to write and produce a new series of Star Wars films, separate from the already confirmed trilogy from The Last Jedi director Rian Johnson and the Skywalker Saga.
Little is known about these projects at this point. Will these films follow an original storyline or will they draw from the original expanded universe material (possibly a Knights of the Old Republic adaptation?) yet that does not mean that it is too early to be looking at potential directors. Star Wars, being one of the biggest film franchises in the world, is something that most directors would leap at. Which directors though would best with the creative minds of David Benioff and D.B. Weiss? What visions would enhance their world or even by contrast compliment their style?
These ten directors should be just some of the few that Disney and Lucasfilm should consider for these new Star Wars films from Benioff and Weiss. Hit Next to get started!
