Ron Howard shares secretive set photo from first day on Han Solo movie
Every good space smuggler knows the value of discretion — and so, it seems, does Ron Howard.
Having recently assumed directorial duties on Lucasfilm’s untitled Han Solo movie after the firing of Chris Miller and Phil Lord, Howard tweeted a photo from his first day on set Thursday. Unfortunately for spoiler-seeking fans, it gives away absolutely nothing.
“Cool scene today but I’m afraid this is the most revealing image I dare share from my 1st day on set of the Untitled Han Solo movie,” Howard wrote alongside a photo of his work boots, some water bottles, and a stretch of cables. Nope, not a Wookiee in sight.
Howard boarded the Han Solo movie last week, bringing a steady hand to the project after Lord and Miller’s freewheeling style clashed with Lucasfilm’s vision. The veteran director tweeted at the time that he is “beyond grateful to add my voice to the Star Wars Universe after being a fan since 5/25/77,” referring to the release date of the original Star Wars.
The untitled Han Solo movie stars Alden Ehrenreich as Han, Donald Glover as Lando Calrissian, Woody Harrelson as a mentor figure, and Emilia Clarke as an unknown character. It’s slated to hit theaters May 25, 2018.
