Is Han Solo Film In Trouble? Poor Acting And Action Allegedly Forces Early Reshoots

Gregory Wakeman

Rumors have emerged that the upcoming Han Solo spinoff hasn't quite hit the mark during its production, with the latest speculation suggesting that the acting isn't as up to par as expected, and even the action of the film is a little disappointing. Because of these issues, the Han Solo film is expected to undergo reshoots in the very near future in order to solve them.

However, this rumor should be taken with a bit of salt because even The Weekly Planet Podcast, the team responsible for the speculation, has acknowledged that it could be a little untrustworthy. When relaying the information provided to them by their source, The Weekly Planet Podcast did insist that while the script for the still untitled Han Solo is "very funny," Lucasfilm president Kathleen Kennedy has told directors Phil Lord and Christopher Miller that both the action and acting are "weak."

"There are a number of reshoots for the film. The scripts are very funny but the action set pieces and acting are thought to be weak by Kathleen Kennedy."
"I don't know whether this is true or not - it could just be one perspective for her in particular. Maybe there is great acting and action?"

But while the alleged revelation about just how weak Han Solo's action and acting are might be a tad alarming for Star Wars fans to hear, it should be noted that pretty much every other blockbuster undergoes reshoots in order for them to be honed and perfected.

That's likely to be the case with the Han Solo film, too, and considering that those involved still have over 11 months until it is released into cinemas, there really isn't any need to be overly concerned. At least at the moment. Especially because Rogue One: A Star Wars Story underwent drastic alterations just under six months before it was released, as Tony Gilroy was brought in to assist director Gareth Edwards with these reshoots.
