‘Han Solo’ spin-off loses directors over ‘creative differences’
‘Star Wars’ film-makers quit the production due to ‘different visions’ for the project
Harrison Ford as Han Solo and Peter Mayhew as Chewbacca in one of the original ‘Star Wars’ films.
The directors of the upcoming Han Solo film have left the production due to “creative differences”.
Lucasfilm president Kathleen Kennedy said a new director would be announced soon.
Lord and Miller said in a statement on the Star Wars website: “Unfortunately, our vision and process weren’t aligned with our partners on this project.
“We normally aren’t fans of the phrase ‘creative differences’, but for once this cliche is true.
“We are really proud of the amazing and world-class work of our cast and crew.”
Ms Kennedy said: “Phil Lord and Christopher Miller are talented film-makers who have assembled an incredible cast and crew, but it’s become clear that we had different creative visions on this film, and we’ve decided to part ways.
“A new director will be announced soon.”
The Han Solo film remains scheduled for a May 2018 release.
