‘Star Wars’ Han Solo Film Now Solo In Direction

Directors Phil Lord and Chris Miller will be sent to a galaxy even farther away after clashing with producer Kathleen Kennedy on the untitled Star Wars Han Solo spin-off.

According to Variety, Lord and Miller had been clashing with Kennedy “for months” with the two sides disagreeing on the vision for the film.

“It was a culture clash from day one,” the source said. “She didn’t even like the way they folded their socks.”

And as you well know, how someone folds their socks is very important when it comes to filmmaking. Tuck them together at the top and it shows you want full control. Lay them on top of each other with a fold in the middle means you’re a little fast and loose. Just throwing them in the drawer shows you don’t care and you’re just happy to be getting paid.

Lord and Miller were brought on to the film to bring a certain humor to an otherwise serious franchise following their success with 21 Jump Street and The Lego Movie. That humor didn’t sit too well with Kennedy and her team.

Lord and Miller released the following statement on their exit:

“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. We are really proud of the amazing and world-class work of our cast and crew,”

What they’re really saying is, “We wanted to make a good movie that is different and they wanted to make the same Star Wars film we’ve seen for the last 20 years.”

Kennedy released her own statement:

“Phil Lord and Christopher Miller are talented filmmakers who have assembled an incredible cast and crew, but it’s become clear that we had different creative visions on this film, and we’ve decided to part ways.”

Translation: “It’s not me, it’s you.”

The film, which is still in the middle of shooting, is currently without a director. Just get J.J. Abrams to save the day again. He’s our only hope.
