GEEK OUT! STAR WARS: RON HOWARD CONFIRMED AS DIRECTOR OF HAN SOLO

Director Ron Howard has confirmed on Twitter that he will take over from the departed Phil Lord and Chris Miller to helm the Han Solo standalone movie.

Howard’s films include: the science-fiction/fantasy film Cocoon (1985), the historical docudrama Apollo 13 (1995), the biographical drama A Beautiful Mind (2001) (earning him the Academy Award for Best Director), and the thriller The Da Vinci Code (2006). So he is definitely a safe choice as far as Lucasfilm is concerned.

Oh and Howard’s tenuous link to Star Wars? He acted in George Lucas’ American Graffiti, the film Lucas made before Star Wars!

… still there’s more …
