Han Solo Stand Alone Film In Trouble
After several conflicts with producer Kathleen Kennedy, Directors Phil Lord and Chris Miller have announced they are stepping away from the Untitled Star Wars Han Solo spinoff project. Claiming they were not being given the freedom necessary to run the production, an insider stated they clashed with Kennedy, Lucas Films team members and cowriter and executive producer Lawrence Kasdan.
Miller and Lord have successfully written and Directed 21 Jump Street and The Lego Movie and were tasked with bringing their campy style to the Star Wars universe. However, it seems Kennedy didn't approve of their shooting style nor how they interacted with cast and crew members.
Rumors eluded to Ron Howard taking over the project but currently, no deal has been made.
Despite this setback, a Disney spokesperson stated the film is still set to open May 25, 2018.
