Ron Howard to direct Han Solo movie
    2017-June-26  08:53    Shenzhen Daily

THE Millennium Falcon has a new pilot.

Ron Howard has been named as the new director of Lucasfilm and Disney’s untitled Han Solo movie.

The official announcement came Thursday morning, two days after directors Phil Lord and Chris Miller were let go from the movie they had spent over four and a half months directing. Creative differences over style and tone came to a head between the duo and Lawrence Kasdan, with the studio backing the veteran screenwriter.

The firing sent shockwaves around Hollywood and beyond as the movie was about three-quarters through principal photography and the replacement of a director at that stage is near-unprecedented. The movie was scheduled to shoot for three and a half more weeks, with five weeks of reshoots built into the schedule — the latter a standard procedure on large franchise productions.

Howard will meet with the actors — Alden Ehrenreich is playing the iconic smuggler and Donald Glover is portraying Lando Calrissian, with Woody Harrelson, Emilia Clarke and Thandie Newton also on the roll call — to soothe a rattled set and will pore over a rough edit to see what the project needs. Filming is set to resume July 10.

“I’m beyond grateful to add my voice to the Star Wars Universe after being a fan since 5/25/77,” Howard tweeted Thursday afternoon. “I hope to honor the great work already done and help deliver on the promise of a Han Solo film.”

Howard, who directed 1995’s “Apollo 13” and won an Oscar for helming 2002’s “A Beautiful Mind,” appeared in Lucas’ 1973 breakout film “American Graffiti” and helmed Lucas’ 1988 pet fantasy project “Willow.”

The untitled Han Solo film is slated for release May 25 next year.(SD-Agencies)
