The firing shocked many in Hollywood, as the duo were close to completing principal photography on the movie, which will follow the early years of Han Solo as a smuggler. Lord and Miller have also developed considerable clout after the success of “The Lego Movie.”
It’s still unclear how the director credit for the movie will be handled. If Lord and Miller take their names off from the movie, they could lose millions in residuals. However, it’s not the Directors Guild of America’s preference to list three names in a director credit.
The untitled Han Solo movie is still set for a May 25, 2018, release.
