It seems things are changing over at Lucasfilm with there Han Solo film. The latest headline coming from the set is “Young Han Solo Film Loses Directors”, not the headline you were looking for at this point.
“Phil Lord and Christopher Miller are talented filmmakers who have assembled an incredible cast and crew, but it’s become clear that we had different creative visions on this film, and we’ve decided to part ways. A new director will be announced soon,” said Kathleen Kennedy, president of Lucasfilm in a statement.
“Unfortunately, our vision and process weren’t aligned with our partners on this project. We normally aren’t fans of the phrase ‘creative differences’ but for once this cliché is true. We are really proud of the amazing and world-class work of our cast and crew,” said a statement from Phil Lord and Christopher Miller.
The upcoming film has been filming in London since February. According to THR sources, there are several weeks left on the shoot (who will be directing those is currently under wraps), with re-shoots scheduled for later this summer.
The movie’s release date of May 25, 2018 remains unchanged.
