ICYMI: Han Solo spin-off directors Phil Lord and Chris Miller leave due to creative differences

Looks like a certain spin-off film starring a famous "scruffy nerf herder" and smuggler from the Star Wars universe is going to need a new director handling his early adventure story, as Phil Lord and Chris Miller have stepped away from directing the Han Solo spin-off according to THR, parting ways with Lucasfilm and leaving the project without a helmer.

In a statement released by "The Lego Movie" directors, they expressed why they had to leave due to creative differences.

“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."

Also responding to the departure, Lucasfilm president Kathleen Kennedy released her own statement:

"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.”

The Han Solo spin-off is slated for release on May 25, 2018.

R.I.P Adam West - Batman 1966 star passes away at 88

He was known to a generation as "Batman" of the 1960's TV Series, but he was also an actor of many talents... And now he has joined our creator in the heavens after a long battle with Leukemia. Legendary American actor Adam West passes away at the age of 88, leaving many Batfans devastated and a lot of friends and admirers honoring his legacy by paying tribute to the iconic campy Caped Crusader who entertained millions by fighting crime for justice and peace.

The Best of 1966 Batman/Bruce Wayne

For his many accolades in film and television, Adam West was best known for his portrayal of Bruce Wayne/ Batman in the hit ABC "Batman" series of 1966 and its theatrical film feature follow-up. Embracing his typecasting, he went on to voice the Caped Crusader and play him throughout several features through the years - including a returning animated movie stint in "Batman: Return of the Caped Crusaders" which reunited him with his sidekick Robin played by Burt Ward. West would also voice Simon Trent/ The Grey Ghost in the hit 1992 "Batman: The Animated Series" - a character that spoofed and honored his portrayal of Batman and was the inspiration/ hero of Kevin Conroy's Dark Knight.

[Batman TAS] - Gray Ghost- (With Adam West and Bruce Timm!)

As the world mourns and pay tributes including myself, the men who played Batman, and even DC Comics, we all give something to remember a man who is and will forever be Batman in our hearts. R.I.P Adam West, and thank you.
