THR is reporting that Ron Howard is to take over directing the Han Solo movie. He's one of my favourite directors, so I'm all for this choice! :D

I wonder if Lord and Miller will get directing credits on this considering they shot for 4 months but Howard will continue the 3 and half weeks of planned shooting and an additional 5 weeks of reshoots

Sounds like the majority of Lord and millers original film will be wiped considering their style of filming will take longer anyway (hense 4 months) compared to Howard's experienced style of shooting (for 5 more weeks). If you catch my drift. He can't most likely get what they accomplished in 4 months in that 5 week duration - as well as 3 and half weeks on top to finsh the original plan

As much I was looking forward to seeing Lord and Millers version (they're comedic geniuses after all), I'd rather Howard start from scratch so the film can be considered his own. I remember reading something once about a similar situation where the new director had to have filmed at least more than half of their own scenes for them to be credited as the main director, so they ended up filming like 51% of the film again... can't remember who or what film it was now though, and I'm unsure if that's a general rule for all films or just something set by a certain studio.

This situation has happened a couple times before...

Superman 2 rings a bell. Was that it?

Besides Glover and Harrelson, who the others?
Chewbacca is top right.......... :rolleyes: Lol

All I know is the 2 you named and Emilia Clarke. I have no idea who the guy is playing Han and tbh I hate the way he looks, the guy Inbetween Donald and Emilia looks like a small side character from community, the guy below woody looks like he could be related to Karl urban and no idea who the girl next to him is

I'm just up for Donald, woody & Emilia tbh
