Han Solo, A Star Wars Story: Directors shot in film shoot
The news has fallen! Chris Miller and Phil Lord, the directors of Han Solo, A Star Wars Story, had to withdraw from the project due to creative disputes with the studios.
Bim! Will LucasFilm’s well-oiled machine know its first failures? While everything seemed to go well on the set of Han Solo, A Star Wars Story, pictures and small indiscretions to support, here we learn that things were not as serene as that. Because yes, we have just learned that Christropher Miller and Phil Lord, the two directors of the film, have been fired from the project ! Like that, without a warning shot or warning. Yet the two directors had been carefully selected by the studios well upstream from the production of the spin-off on Han Solo and seemed to have well integrated the universe of the saga. Although the arrival of the two men, rather specialized in comedy ( 21 Jump Street , La Grande Aventure Lego ), had raised more than one eyebrow. Creative disputes were at the origin of the filmmakers’ departure, which apparently did not share the vision of the studios of the character of Han Solo. And from the beginning.
Kathleen Kennedy, president of LucasFilm, said: ” Phil Lord and Chris Miller are talented directors who brought together a great cast and crew, but it became clear that we each had a different view of the film And we have decided to separate, and a new director will be announced soon . ” ” Unfortunately, our vision and process were not in line with our partners on the project. We are usually not too fans of the expression ‘creative disputes’, but for once , This shot is right . “. It remains to be seen what effect the departure of Phil Lord and Chris Miller will have on the filming of the film. Will the one who takes their place rewrite part of the script to better stick to the studio’s vision ? Is filming likely to fall behind? In any case, it seems that LucasFilm has already looked to Ron Howard, who could replace the two men. At melty, there is in any case the fingers so that Han Solo, a Star Wars Story, which is supposed to be a very different film , does not suffer too much from this brutal change. What do you think ? In any case fingers for Han Solo, A Star Wars Story, which is supposed to be a very different film , does not suffer too much from this brutal change. What do you think ?
