The film follows the young Han Solo — a 20-something version of Harrison Ford’s character — and Chewbacca’s adventures before joining the Rebellion, including their encounters with Lando Calrissian.

Howard took over as director in August after the movie’s original helmers, Phil Lord and Chris Miller, were fired, after clashing with Lucasfilm chief Kathleen Kennedy and co-writer/executive producer Lawrence Kasdan.

“It was a culture clash from day one,” a source told Variety at the time. “She didn’t

‘Star Wars’ Han Solo Spinoff: Michael K. Williams Role Cut Following Reshoots

‘Star Wars’ Han Solo Spinoff: Michael K. Williams Role Cut Following Reshoots
While the “Star Wars” Han Solo film may be back on track, not everything could be saved in reshoots.

Sources tell Variety Michael K. Williams’ character has been cut from the film, due to his commitment to “The Red Sea Diving Resort.” He booked the biographic drama after he had finished filming Han Solo, and was unable to return to reshoot any new material for the film.

Reshoots began in June after Phil Lord and Christopher Miller were let go and replaced by Ron Howard, and they are expected to run into the fall. Williams’ role in “The Red Sea Diving Resort,” which also stars Chris Evans, is significant and made it impossible for him to balance the schedules of both shoots.

What Is Ron Howard Trying to Show Us in the Latest Han Solo Photo?
Han Solo director Ron Howard revealed in an interview last week that he's very careful not to include even, "a sliver of a spoiler" in any of the photos he's sent out from the set, after taking over the production in late June. Still, that hasn't stopped fans from trying to find out more details, especially with the new photo he sent out today, where the director is seen, "checking out a camera move" on the set. The director is seen watching a monitor, and while we can see that one unspecified female character in a backless dress has her back to the camera, there is not much more we can glean from this image, unfortunately.

The photo from Ron Howard's Twitter features this mystery woman facing numerous other characters, although we can't make out any distinguishing details about the woman or the other characters gathered around her. It's

Clint Howard is one of those actors who managed to simultaneously make it as a “hey, it’s that guy!” character actor while having a uniquely distinct physical look to him. That type of actor tends to blend into the background and naturally adapt to whatever project they’re in, but Howard is one of the rare examples of a performer […]

‘Han Solo’ Gets Necessary Clint Howard Cameo, Bradford Young Still Cinematographer

  • The Playlist
Lucasfilm‘s still untitled Han Solo movie is currently in the phase where everyone is pretending everything is totally fine and going great. “It’s a fantastic script, a great cast and I am having a fantastic creative experience with it,” replacement director Ron Howard enthused to THR. “It’s a great young cast, incredibly strong — smart, funny people who love their characters and love being part of this. I think we’ll be able to do something that is a lot of fun.”

As you know, the film hit a serious road bump when Phil Lord and Chris Miller quit the picture after creatively clashing with executives, but it looks like Howard is finding a balance between putting his mark on the material, without rocking the aesthetic of his forebears.

Fantasy Fridays: Scully & Mfr Cast And Pitch Shazam! w/Dwayne Johnson

  • LRM Online
Welcome back to another edition of Fantasy Fridays, where two real-life best friends who ended up working at Lrm together get to pretend to be Studio Execs by casting, staffing, and/or pitching fanboy-centric projects. Last week, we made our case for what the next wave of Marvel series on Netflix should center on. This week we turn our attention towards DC's Shazam!

This week gave us the first real updates on Shazam! in quite some time. With both producer Hiram Garcia and star Dwayne Johnson (who's locked in to play Black Adam) taking to social media to hype up how well a key meeting with the WB/DC brass went. Johnson made a statement about how the future of the DC Extended Universe looks to embrace an outlook of "Hope, Optimism, and Fun," and that got us thinking about how to best tackle a Shazam! movie that wants to be all of those things.

Class of 1986: Six Horror & Sci-Fi Movies Released in 1986 That Deserve More Love

  • DailyDead
When it comes to horror and sci-fi movies from 1986, there are several milestone titles that always come to mind first: Aliens, The Fly, Blue Velvet, Friday the 13th Part VI: Jason Lives, Manhunter, Poltergeist II: The Other Side, or even Psycho III, just to name a few. But like any great year of cinema, there are always a few underrated gems that get overshadowed along the way and should receive a little extra love. Here are six films from 1986 that I think deserve to be on every genre fan’s radar:

F/X: A movie about a special effects artist who gets mixed up in a government conspiracy, at a time when practical effects were in their heyday? Yes, please. F/X isn’t a film I hear a ton of folks talk about, but it has been on cable a lot lately, which means I’ve spent a few nights revisiting it,

From Cameron to Boll: Four Action-Horror Hybrids

Any horror fan knows that for a lot of movies in the genre, it can be hard to sell non-enthusiasts on having the wits scared out of them. Thankfully, the genre covers so much ground and incorporates so much of the best of other kinds of film that it’s not hard to find something that can appeal to everyone while still satisfying those looking for scares. These are a few of the best movies that combine our favorite aspects of both action and horror.

Aliens

James Cameron took Ridley Scott’s tense and atmospheric 1979 thriller and put his own spin on it by applying his successful trademark Terminator-style action sensibilities. The result was an action-horror classic that holds up incredibly well today and remains wildly influential across pop culture. Aliens introduced the concept of the space marine as we know it today and paved the way for countless future science-fiction franchises.

The Funhouse Massacre Slices and Dices Your Funny Bone: A Film Review

Director: Andy Palmer. Writers: Ben Begley and Renee Dorian. Cast: Robert Englund, Jere Burns, Scottie Thompson, Matt Angel and Chasty Ballesteros. The Funhouse Massacre is an indie horror feature from director Andy Palmer (Badlands of Kain). Written by Ben Begley and Renee Dorian, this title blends a lot of blood with some comedy, on Halloween night. Serial killers haunt an amusement park. And, a family reunion, created in Hell, offers a decent climax. Meanwhile, a theme involving impersonation is appropriate for the film's Halloween setting, while The Funhouse Massacre manages to create an entertaining horror world. In the story, actor Robert Englund appears as a blood-thirsty warden. He allows a journalist to tour his psychiatric hospital. The hospital pens several serial killers in its walls. While the journalist and warden become better acquainted, six murderers escape their confines. The taxidermist (Clint Howard), the cannibal (E. E. Bell), the dentist charmer, a killing...
