About a week ago, a rumor hit the net stating that Aaron Paul is being eyed for a Star Wars spinoff movie featuring Han Solo.

The rumor didn't specifically state Aaron Paul was up for Han Solo, but it's not that hard to connect the dots.

Now Paul has noticed the rumor as well. 

Aaron Paul took to Twitter to mention the Star Wars rumor is "very exciting" and jokes about having a job this year.

"Who's starting these rumors?" Aaron Paul tweeted "This one is actually making me believe I have a job in 2015. Very exciting. #StarWars"

The rumor also stated that the Han Solo Star Wars spinoff would overlap filming with Star Wars: Episode VIII and had the working title "Luminac Industrial Goods."

Godzilla director Gareth Edwards is directing the first Star Wars spinoff, which has a December 16, 2016 release, with Gary Whitta writing the script.

Aaron Paul was recently featured in Need For Speed and Ridley Scott's Exodus: Gods and Kings.

"Star Wars: The Force Awakens" has a December 18, 2015 release directed by J.J. Abrams from a screenplay by Lawrence Kasdan and Abrams. Kathleen Kennedy, J.J. Abrams, and Bryan Burk are producing, and John Williams returns as the composer.

Actors John Boyega, Daisy Ridley, Adam Driver, Oscar Isaac, Andy Serkis, Domhnall Gleeson, Max von Sydow, Lupita Nyong'o and Gwendoline Christie will join the original stars of the saga, Harrison Ford, Carrie Fisher, Mark Hamill, Anthony Daniels, Peter Mayhew, and Kenny Baker in the new film.
