It comes as quite a shock that Phil Lord and Christopher Miller have parted ways on the young Han Solo spinoff film which has been shooting since February reports THR.
President of Lucasfilm, Kathleen Kennedy, released the following statement:
“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.”
Lord and Miller add:
“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.”
For a movie to lose its director this far into production is practically unheard of. Sources are reporting that there are only a couple of weeks left on the shoot with reshoots scheduled for later this summer, so it is super intrigued to see how this unfolds.
Han Solo is expected to hit theaters on its current release date of May 25, 2018.
