Chris Miller And Phil Lord Step Down As ‘Han Solo’ Directors Mid-Production

LucasFilm have released a statement overnight confirming that both Phil Lord and Christopher Miller have stepped down as directors on the second ‘Star Wars’ spin-off, the currently untitled ‘Han Solo’ film.

Official Statement:

“The untitled Han Solo film will move forward with a directorial change.

“Phil Lord and Christopher Miller are talented filmmakers 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,” said Kathleen Kennedy, president of Lucasfilm.

“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 clichĂ© is true. We are really proud of the amazing and world-class work of our cast and crew,” stated Phil Lord and Christopher Miller.

The untitled Han Solo film remains scheduled for a May 2018 release.”

Fans on Twitter are already naming directors they’d love to take over the project, but who would be your choice?

  1. I heard they did not step down but were fired. Too bad, I like their work and think they could have made an interesting go of it.
