As you probably know by now, the Han Solo spinoff project has gone through a few changes. Back in June, the entertainment world was shocked when it was announced that directors Phil Lord and Chris Miller were leaving the film mid-shoot, with it later being revealed that Ron Howard would take over. Well, now Deadline reports that, as a result of the reshoots needed for the film, Michael K. Williams will no longer appear. Unfortunately, the new production schedule conflicted with The Red Sea Diving Resort, which Williams is currently working on in Africa. The actor, perhaps best known for his role on The Wire, told Deadline, “I felt great about what I created with the directors that I worked with. It is what it is.” However, he did add that he’d like to work in the Star Wars universe again, saying, “I don’t think that me not being in the Star Wars family is final. I left with a very good taste in my mouth about the whole family, and I hope that I left a good taste in their mouth. They’re a great group of people, the Lucas family.”
