Following the exit of Phil Lord and Chris Miller due to creative differences, Disney has placed the Han Solo spin off in the hands of Academy Award Winning Director Ron Howard. Disney executive Kathleen Kennedy made the following statement:
“At Lucasfilm, we believe the highest goal of each film is to delight, carrying forward the spirit of the saga that George Lucas began forty years ago. With that in mind, we’re thrilled to announce that Ron Howard will step in to direct the untitled Han Solo film. We have a wonderful script, an incredible cast and crew, and the absolute commitment to make a great movie. Filming will resume the 10th of July.”
Everything indicates that Ron Howard will finish where the duo left from and it will be left to be seen how he he’s able to spin his touch on the feature.
