Phil Lord and Christopher Miller have exited the Han Solo Spin-off movie due to creative differences.
The Hollywood Reporter released the directors’ statement, saying, “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.”
Although their departure has occurred in the middle of filming which started in February, the May 25, 2018 release date has yet to be changed. Kathleen Kennedy, president of Lucasfilm also cited different creative visions for the film as the reason for their departure, as well as stating a new director would be announced soon.
