Production is still ongoing on the untitled Han Solo film at Lucasfilm and Disney Pictures with director Ron Howard posting a new set photo with himself and cinematographer Bradford Young blocking out a scene. An alien puppet can be seen in the background.
Speaking with ET Online this week, one of the film’s stars Woody Harrelson spoke a bit about how the film’s progressing and the tone, saying: “Fortunately, the Force is still very much with us. It’s great that Ron came along when he did. He’s a great actor and a great guy, [with a] great sense of humor. I think a lot of humor comes through what he’s doing. I think it could be one of the funnier Star Wars movies.”
Meanwhile Screen Rant has done some digging into the handbook of the Director’s Guild of America handbook to look at the regulations over the firing of the film’s previous directors Phil Lord and Chris Miller.
Lord and Miller had directed approximately 85% of the movie before they were let go, that’s before a rule kicks in at 90%. Had they been kept on until 90%, they would’ve been entitled to all post-production creative rights.
The Han Solo film opens in cinemas on May 25th 2018.
