Lucasfilm is pleased to announce that Academy Award-winning filmmaker Ron Howard has been named director of the untitled Han Solo film.

The movie hit a snag earlier this week when directors Phil Lord and Christopher Miller dropped out due to “creative differences.”

Lord and Miller had been filming the untitled project in London since January 2017 with stars Alden Ehrenreich as the young Han Solo and Donald Glover as Lando Calrissian. The supporting cast includes Woody Harrelson, Emilia Clarke and Thandie Newton.

"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 cliché is true," the directors said in a joint statement Tuesday. "We are really proud of the amazing and world-class work of our cast and crew."

Howard has shepherded Oscar winners like "A Beautiful Mind" and "Apollo 13." But his recent films, including the "Da Vince Code" sequel "Inferno" and "In the Heart of the Sea," have struggled at the box office.

He's no JJ Abrams (sp.) but it will be an interesting take on Han.

I'm in.

I read an article about how firing the other two guys is going to create a problem with residuals, other payments, and director's rights.

It would be so cool if they could work a carbonite Andy, Aunt Bea, or Goober in there somewhere.

Oh, to the contrary my dear friends. The Sith have the Rule of Two. No more, no less. One to embody the power, the other to crave it. It is the job of the apprentice to learn everything until they are strong enough to kill the master and take their own apprentice. Thus ensuring that only the most powerful Sith is always in rule. Darth Bane created this cycle to stop the infighting that plagued the Sith and prevented them from gaining power. This rule was followed diligently, in secret, for over 1000 years until Darth Sidious finally destroyed the Jedi.
