Disney's Kathleen Kennedy confirmed the news. 

"We're actually very close. We are going to start shooting in February," Kennedy said. 

Kennedy also previously described the Star Wars Han Solo movie as more of a western.

The Han Solo movie will take place in the early days of the character, prior to Episode IV and will also feature Chewbacca and Lando Calrissian. 

The untitled Star Wars Han Solo movie will be released May 25, 2018 directed by Phil Lord and Christopher Miller with a script by Lawrence Kasdan and Joe Kasdan starring Alden Ehrenreich as Han Solo and Donald Glover as Lando Calrissian.
