LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- The directors of the new Star Wars spinoff movie focused on Han Solo have been fired, according to a report from the entertainment magazine, Variety.

According to the report, directors Phil Lord and Chris Miller, "did not leave the production voluntarily, but were fired by LucasFilm." Variety cites sources who say the departures were due to conflicts with producer Kathleen Kennedy and others from LucasFilm.

"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," said Lord and Miller in a statement.
