Phil Lord en Chris Miller over hun Han Solo ontslag

Phil Lord en Chris Miller over hun Han Solo ontslagPhil Lord en Chris Miller werden in juni ontslagen van hun film Solo: A Star Wars Story. Nu vertelde ze in een interview met Vulture over hun ervaring. In juni plaatste Kathleen Kennedy, president van Lucasfilm een statement op StarWars.com:

“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. A new director will be announced soon.”

Phil Lord en Chris Miller voegden toe:

“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.”

Afgelopen weekend ging het duo dieper in op hun verhaal. Lord zei:

“The experience of shooting the movie was wonderful. We had the most incredible cast and crew and collaborators. I think in terms of us leaving the project, I think everybody went in with really good intentions and our approach to making the movie was different than theirs. That was a really big gap to bridge, and it proved to be too big. Sometimes people break up, and it’s really sad, and it’s really disappointing, but it happens and we learned a lot from our collaborators and we’re better filmmakers for it.” After applause, he added, “We’re really proud of the work we did on the movie and we wish everybody the best.”

Chris Miller grapte:

“We’re super well-adjusted, obviously we’re doing great. We’re super drunk right now. As Phil said, we had such a great relationship with cast and crew, we were really rooting for them. After we took a much-needed vacation, we got back into it and now we’re writing and producing a sequel to The Lego Movie and producing a Miles Morales animated Spider-Man.”
