FX pushes back its hit series "Atlanta" due to Donald Glover's work on upcoming "Han Solo" movie.
Fans of the hit series Atlanta will have to wait till 2018 to watch Paper Boy's career blow up. Though its star Donald Glover has signed on for another season, the show has been pushed back because of his work on the upcoming as-of-yet untitled Star Wars movie about Han Solo. Glover is playing a younger version of Lando Calrissian, a role made famous by Billy Dee Williams in the original films.
According to the Hollywood Reporter, on top of his work on Atlanta, Childish has inked an overall production deal with FX Productions to develop new shows for the network and streaming services. He writes, produces, directs and stars in the award-winning show. Glover's growing impact on mainstream culture cannot be argued at this point. Sunday night, while earning multiple trophies at The Golden Globes, the trendsetter gave a shoutout to Migos' "Bad and Boujee." The next day, sales for the single went through the roof and made it the number one song on Billboard's Hot 100.
