Could the new Han Solo movie be seeing “Happy Days” with Ron Howard?

The Star Wars Han Solo standalone film will now be directed by Ron Howard.

The Hollywood Reporter reports that Howard will replace director team Chris Miller and Phil Lord, after a difference in creative vision with Lucasfilm head Kathleen Kennedy led to a spilt regarding the Han Solo standalone film in the Star Wars cinematic universe.

Howard will reportedly meet with the cast to settle the shakeup, and take a look at the rough footage of the film to see where and how to dig in. The project had three and a half weeks of production left, with five weeks of reshoots planned, as well. Presumably, that should be enough time for Howard to bring the project together, on schedule.

Lucasfilm previously issued the following statement about the shift in directors:

“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,” Kathleen Kennedy said in a statement.

Lord and Miller also released a statement, to balance things out:

“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.”

The untitled Han Solo movie will be in theaters May 25, 2018.
