Marvel Studios President Sympathizes With Lucasfilm Over Han Solo Shake-Up

26 June 2017

Alarmingly, one source speaking to THR claims that upon the announcement to the crew that Ron Howard would step in to take over the film a day after Miller and Lord's firing, applause broke out.

The plot thickens in the ongoing story of the Han Solo movie, as the creative implosion that took place on set is revealed in ever more graphic detail.

And Ron couldn't be happier to be working on the movie as he's been a huge fan of the Star Wars franchise for decades.

The Prime Minister spoke of the recent reforms, and noted that the Union Government alone has initiated 7,000 reforms. Trump built a Trump Tower property in Mumbai and spoke warmly of India during his presidential campaign past year .

The news comes days after the shocking departure of "Lego Movie" duo Phil Lord and Chris Miller, the irreverent helmers whose style and vision for the prequel reportedly clashed with that of the bosses up the chain - namely, Lucasfilm President Kathleen Kennedy and executive producer and screenwriter Lawrence Kasdan.

In one instance, the trade was told by sources that Lord and Miller only did three different setups (camera placements) for a scene shot on the Millennium Falcon, versus the 12 to 15 that a movie of this size usually does. I'm hoping this tidbit about coaching has more to do with nailing Harrison Ford's mannerisms or style than actual acting ability, because where I wasn't as bothered about the state of the movie before, this news is more concerning. "I would trust Kathy with any of the decisions she has to make, because she's been making them amazingly for 30-plus years".

Lucasfilm also replaced the film's editor Chris Dickens with Ridley Scott's Oscar-winning editor Pietro Scalia.

Yeah, sure there are other explanations for the two seconds of footage, like perhaps he was deep in contemplation over Mary J. Receiving the BET Humanitarian Award , Chance the Rapper raised a heartfelt cheer from everyone in the theater.

Rising star Alden Ehrenreich will play Han Solo, while Donald Glover will play Lando Calrissian, made famous in George Lucas' original Star Wars trilogy by actor Billy Dee Williams. With Han Solo struggling to improve no matter what the studio tried to do, Kennedy asked Kasdan to travel to London and see if he could course-correct. Some insiders say that while the talent of Lord and Miller is undeniable, nothing in their background prepared them for a movie of this size and scope.

Director of the upcoming Spider-Man: Homecoming, Jon Watts, has a similar career path to Lord and Miller, as both filmmaking teams started with modestly-budgeted comedies before moving to massive productions.

The report also estimated that there are about 5,000 fewer low-wage jobs in the city than there would have been without the law. The study also said some workers might now be paid as contractors or under the table and not be reflected in the state data.
