SOLO: A STAR WARS STORY Actor Paul Bettany Confirms A Lot More Of The Film Was Reshot Than Intended

While The Last Jedi is the Star Wars movie on everyone's minds, Solo: A Star Wars Story is just around the corner, and star Paul Bettany has revealed some surprising information about the film...

With the massive amount of news concerning Star Wars: The Last Jedi during the last week, it's easy to forget that we have another Star Wars film arriving in just five months. Solo: A Star Wars Story is still set to hit theatres this May, though we still haven't seen anything official from the production. 

In the latest issue of Total Film, Paul Bettany (who is playing an unnamed "gangster" character in the film) expressed his excitement to be a part of the franchise, saying the film is very different despite the familiar title character. "It's Han Solo's story, and of course his story would be a caper," Bettany told the magazine. "On one level it's a gangster movie. That's really interesting, because it's within the canon but really different. It's f***ing Han Solo! Suddenly, I'm an intergalactic gangster and I'm walking down some stairs and an R2 unit goes by with some champagne, and I'm like... [drops jaw] I had that feeling that I hadn't had since I was first on a film set - I was a little boy doing the best job in the world."

Bettany also had high praise for Ron Howard, who took over the film's directorial duties when original directors Phil Lord and Chris Miller were fired from the production last June. While it's been rumored for some time that Howard reshot most of the film, Bettany all but confirmed it in the interview.

“His staging ability is so f***ing brilliant,” Bettany said. “I think he went in and he was like a laser, working out what needed to be done when he looked at the footage. And then, as things moved on, everybody felt so secure with him. And they gave him more. He reshot a lot more than was originally intended.”

Many have had their doubts about the film due to the troubled production, though Rogue One had similar issues was a great success at the box office. We'll find out for certain when Solo: A Star Wars Story hits theatres on May 25, 2018. How do you think the film will turn out? Let us know in the comments!
