Ron Howard did his best to reassure fans that the Han Solo spinoff movie is still on track and “coming along great” despite his abrupt takeover.
“It’s a fantastic script, a great cast and I am having a fantastic creative experience with it,” he told the Hollywood Reporter.
Howard stepped in to direct the movie after Phil Lord and Chris Miller backed out in late June over “creative differences.”
