Solo: A Star Wars Story

These Star Wars spinoffs are a part of the larger universe and are meant to tell stories that aren’t about the core saga. We saw a little bit of that in Rogue One: A Star Wars Story and we will see that once more in the Han Solo standalone film, which has been going by that non-title since the beginning of production and well after Ron Howard came in to direct the film.

But now the film has got an official title. So prepare yourselves, because come May 2018, we will see Solo: A Star Wars Story. More on the this below.

Andy Weir's Artemis

After being relieved of their duties directing the untitled Star Wars spinoff centered on a young Han Solo, Phil Lord and Chris Miller have found their next project.

The duo has signed on to direct Artemis, which is based on the book of the same name by The Martian author Andy Weir and is described as an “adrenaline-charged crime caper that features smart, detailed world-building based on real science.” It follows your average twenty-something struggling to get by, only this particular twenty-something happens to live in the one and only city on our moon, and an opportunity to greatly improve her situation has presented itself.

Han Solo: Paul Bettany To Replace Michael K. William In ‘Star Wars’ Spinoff

Ron Howard and Paul Bettany On Han Solo Set

You have to hand it to Ron Howard for handling the Han Solo Star Wars spinoff as well as he is. For one thing, he is a bit more transparent, giving fans a look at everything that is going on behind the scenes, even he is releasing meaningless photos of craft food services. But for what it’s worth we are getting better looks at the set than we ever did before. But these reshoots have forced Michael K. William‘s character to be cut out of the entire film. While we knew he would have played “a half-human, half-animal” who was a “kick-ass character,” cutting his character seemed to indicate it wasn’t of major significance.

However, it appears that the character does hold some weight in the film. So much so that Howard turned to a reliable friend to act as William’s replacement. With a few caveats of course. That actor is a Beautiful Mind star Paul Bettany, whom you may know as Vision in the Marvel Cinematic Universe. More on the story below.

Though the Star Wars spinoffs are meant to expand on the universe, they aren’t without problems. Director Josh Trank was let go from the now in limbo Boba Fett film, and Gareth Edwards‘s Rogue One had to go through extensive reshoots with the help of Tony Gilroy. Now comes Phil Lord and Chris Miller being fired from their duty as directors of the still untitled Han Solo film over creative differences. The two were soon after replaced by Ron Howard. But it is why they were fired and the timing of it all that has many of us fascinated about what was going on behind the scenes. More on the story below.

Han Solo: Why Phil Lord, Chris Miller Left ‘Star Wars’ Spinoff; Who Could Replace Them

Untitled Han Solo Movie Cast Photo

Yesterday, cam the shocking report that Phil Lord and Chris Miller were departing as directors of the untitled Han Solo Star Wars spinoff. With only three weeks of production left on the schedule, the timing of their departure came into question. Although Lucasfilm president Kathleen Kennedy said that it was due to creative differences, it seemed very odd that they would leave at such a critical juncture of the film.

Now there are new details. According to various reports, Lord and Miller were actually fired due to creative differences which stemmed from a conflict between Lawrence Kasdan, the film’s screenwriter. According to these reports, Lord and Miller’s comedic and improvisational style came into conflict with Kasdan’s by-the-script method – meaning what is on the page is what must be shot. More on the story below.

Miles Morales

At first, Sony tried to launch a Spider-Man franchise full of sequels and spinoffs. However, The Amazing Spider-Man 2‘s less than spectacular box office performance forced the studio to pull the plug. Since then they’ve revamped those plans by sharing the Wallcrawler with Marvel Studios, creating a separate universe with his supporting characters, and announced an animated spinoff film.

Now we know who will be voicing the lead role in that yet-to-be-titled animated Spider-Man film. It has been confirmed that Dope star Shameik Moore will voice Miles Morales. More on the story below.
