So… let me just get out of the way of this one.
According to The Hollywood Reporter, Christopher Miller and Phil Lord, two guys you want to make happy if your goal is making good movies from bad ideas, have left the Han Solo prequel film over creative differences. Like, way late.
I feel like this is the sort of thing that’s going to feed rumor mills for a while, and I honestly have no clue what to add to it. This is a weird situation (have you noticed that weird situations seem to be popping up a lot lately?). The film has been shooting since February, which opens a ton of questions about how much wasn’t working/will be reshot/why these guys felt it was time to leave THIS late in the process.
Maybe we’ll never know. We’ll probably also never know how much credit/disdain we should give the film’s replacement director. In fact, this is a good point to admit nobody knows anything and just hope a good movie comes out of this (though I have my doubts).
