Han Solo Movie: Donald Glover Addresses Sudden Director Changeover

This summer in London, Glover sat down with The Hollywood Reporter to discuss the new Han Solo movie as well as Glover's other projects and the fuel behind his striking rise among the Hollywood's ranks.

"To be honest, I don't know exactly what happened", Glover went on to say. In a new interview with BBC Radio 1, Donald Glover, who'd said he was retiring his musical alter ego back in June, reveals that he's been working on some brand new music. "I feel like there's gotta be a reason to do things and I always had a reason to be punk", he said at the time. The oldest child is like, 'We know what's happening, but we are keeping you out of it.' And I'm just like, [in a high-pitched voice] 'Was that scene good?

Glover will be playing Lando Calrissian in the upcoming Star Wars movie, and he recalled a recent meeting with Billy Dee Williams, who played the character in the original trilogy.


What do you guys think of the pic that Ron Howard tweeted?

Howard took over the Han Solo director's chair after helmers Christopher Miller and Phil Lord were fired after clashing with Lucasfilm president Kathleen Kennedy and screenwriter Lawrence Kasdan. Star Wars films tend to be behind a shroud of secrecy behind an impenetrable shield-gate, but perhaps due to the unique nature of his joining the film, Howard has been sharing relatively innocuous pictures from the set since he officially signed on for production last month. Harrelson told Uproxx in July, "Ron is great. How do you feel?'" He's awesome. He's such a gentleman and so prepared.

Both season two of Atlanta and the as yet untitled Han Solo movie are set to debut in 2018.
