It's highly unlikely Alden Ehrenreich will ever get a second stab at playing Han Solo, but the actor will be playing another iconic sci-fi character: John the Savage in "Brave New World."

The USA series is based on the much-adapted Aldous Huxley’s 1932 novel about a "perfect" society where monogamy, privacy, money, and family are outlawed.

Ehrenreich's character is a "subversive outsider who threatens to disrupt the stability of New London’s utopian society."

Yet to be cast, main characters Bernard Marx and Lenina Crowne, citizens of New London who have never known anything other than rigid social order.

The series was adapted for television by "Homecoming" and "Fear the Walking Dead" alum David Wiener,  along with Grant Morrison and Brian Taylor. "Black Mirror: San Junipero" director Owen Harris is attached to direct the first episode.

Huxley's classic novel has been adapted several times, including TV movies in 1980 (with Keir Dullea) and 1998 (with Peter Gallagher and Leonard Nimoy).

10 years ago, Ridley Scott was planning a production with Leonardo DiCaprio, but that never happened.
