HAN SOLO Origin Movie Loses Directors Phil Lord And Christopher Miller Due To Creative Differences

In a shocking development, it's just been announced that the still untitled young Han Solo movie has lost directors Phil Lord and Christopher Miller due to creative differences with Lucasfilm....

Although the young Han Solo Star Wars spinoff has been shooting since February, THR has just announced that directors Phil Lord and Christopher Miller have parted ways with the project.

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."

It's practically unheard of for a movie to lose its director this far into production, so this is a very surprising development indeed. Sources report that there are only a couple of weeks left on the shoot with re-shoots scheduled for later in the summer, so it's going to be very interesting to see how all of this unfolds.

Han Solo is expected to stick to its current release date of May 25, 2018.
