Glover played character Lando Calrissian in 2018’s Solo: A Star Wars Story, and his character quickly became a fan-favorite, prompting Disney to announce a spin-off series in the works in 2020. The artist was working on the project with his brother, Stephen Glover, before the writers strikes began in the spring, and he revealed on the Pablo Torres Finds Out podcast on Thursday (Sept. 14) that the duo are currently planning to make Lando a movie, though the plans are paused amid the ongoing strikes.
“I’m not interested in doing anything that is going to be a waste of my time or just a paycheck,” Donald told GQ in April. “I would much rather spend time with people I enjoy. It just has to be the right thing, which I think it could be. Lando is definitely somebody I’d like to hang out with. We’re talking about it. That’s as much as I can say.”
In other Donald Glover news, the 39-year-old Atlanta actor joined Laverne Cox for E! News on the Golden Globes red carpet in January, where he revealed that music is on its way. “I’m making music right now. I love it,” he shared. “I’m in the studio, bringing people in, secret people, working on little things. I’ve just been making it for fun right now but soon something will happen, I promise.”
“I thought I heard you were retiring Childish Gambino,” Cox said, before Glover replied, “No, that was out in the ether. You don’t have to worry about that. He will be back.”
Glover’s last release as Childish Gambino was his fourth studio album, 3.15.20, which arrived back in March 2020.
