Ron was made director of the new Solo film after the original directors Phil Lord and Chris Miller where dismissed for reportedly turning the franchise into a Jim-Carey’s-Ace-Ventura-like comedy.
According to actor Paul Bettany, Ron’s rework of the film is ‘f***ing brilliant’ adding that he re-shot more than was originally intended.
‘His staging ability is so f**king brilliant,’ Paul said. ‘I think he went in and he was like a laser, working out what needed to be done when he looked at the footage.’
‘And then, as things moved on, everybody felt so secure with him. And they gave him more. He reshot a lot more than was originally intended.’
Phil Lord and Chris Miller left the Solo project in June after claims of experiencing ‘deep fundamental differences’ with Lucasfilm president Kathleen Kennedy and the movie’s scriptwriter Lawrence Kasdan.
Solo: A Star Wars Story is due for cinematic release on May 25.
