Christian Bale as Bruce Wayne in The Dark Knight

Christian Bale recently appeared on the Happy Sad Confused podcast and dropped some interesting information regarding Solo: A Star Wars Story. According to the Batman Begins actor, he was up for the role of Han Solo’s mentor, which ultimately went to Woody Harrelson.

“Yes, [it was] very tempting. I not only love the films going back to my childhood but also have a very long relationship with Kathleen Kennedy and Frank Marshall because they did Empire of the Sun many years back. There was discussion, [and] I hope there will be future discussions.”

The “future discussions” he refers to could bear fruit. Christian Bale is a big fan of the Star Wars films, and admits to still having the Millennium Falcon and an AT-AT in his personal collection.

Phoebe Waller-Bridge Comments on Transition of Solo Directors

Solo: A Star Wars Story has been anything, but a normal film production. After almost finishing principal photography directors Phil Lord and Chris Miller were fired. Then came rumors of Alden Ehrenreich needing acting coaching, which led to fans speculating that the movie would be dead in the water.

Enter Ron Howard.

In a recent interview with IGN, Phoebe Waller-Bridge commented on the subject of Ron Howard taking over as director of her upcoming film Solo: A Star Wars Story, and how the change in directors affected the filming of her scenes.

“The handover there was done with such warmth and generosity from everybody, and Ron’s just a master at his craft; he’s going to make a beautiful film out of it,” she said of the transition between directors. “You just really trust him and it was just really exciting to work with him. I mean, it would’ve been exciting to just pass him in a corridor, let alone for him to be parachuted in to the film you’re working on.”

When asked how much of her role was reshot compared to Lord and Miller’s version of the film, Waller-Bridge said, “We’d done some really, really great stuff with Chris and Phil that everyone was really thrilled with, and I think a lot of that will still be in it.”

Does this news ease your mind about the upcoming film? Do you still think it will be a failure? Leave your thoughts below.
