Aaron Paul is reportedly involved in the first of three 'Star Wars' spin-off movies, which will be directed by Gareth Edwards and my focus on the character of Han Solo

Aaron Paul has been linked to a 'Star Wars' spin-off film.

The 35-year-old 'Breaking Bad' actor is reportedly involved in the movie which is thought will focus on the character of Han Solo, although it is not yet clear whether the star would be playing the protagonist.

Editor in chief of 'Star Wars' fansite 'Making Star Wars' Jason Ward - who claims to have been informed of details about the production - wrote: "A code name for the production is Luminac Industrial Goods. [The source goes] on to say there's going to be a really interesting situation at Pinewood Studios. The filming will eventually overlap with some of 'Star Wars: Episode VIII'.

"Who are they hearing the film is about? Han Solo.

"They went on to say the word around the current production at Pinewood is that Aaron Paul is looking to be attached to the first Star Wars spin-off film in some fashion."

In February, LucasFilm announced three feature-length spin-off movies would be released in 2016, 2018 and 2020 between the releases of the main 'Star Wars' movies, with 'Godzilla' director Gareth Edwards already confirmed to be directing the first of the films.

The next movie in the franchise, 'Star Wars: The Force Awakens', stars Mark Hamill, Harrison Ford and Carrie Fisher, and will be released on December 18, 2015.
