Lucasfilm revealed yesterday that Phil Lord and Chris Miller left the untitled Han Solo solo movie citing "creative differences", on the movie that's been in production since February. Deadline is reporting that Ron Howard is the frontrunner to take over for Lord and Miller. Howard is a longtime Hollywood veteran who can keep the movie on track for its May 2018 release.

This isn't Disney's first problem with directors, as writer Tony Gilroy directed the extensive re-shoots on the Gareth Edwards-directed first Star Wars spinoff Rogue One. Lord and Miller haven't fallen far though, as they're rumored to take over The Flash at Warner Bros.

The Han Solo solo movie is written by Lawrence and Jon Kasdan, partially-directed by Phil Lord and Christopher Miller, and stars Alden Ehrenreich as Han Solo, Donald Glover as Lando Calrissian, Joonas Suotamo as Chewbacca, Thandie Newton, Phoebe Waller-Bridge, Woody Harrelson, and Emilia Clarke and is set to release in May 2018.
