Reacting the the rage of critics and the Internet alike, WB has essentially fired Zack Snyder from future DC projects. Snyder quickly landed on his feet, however, receiving several offers from top production companies, from Merchant Ivory to Saturn Films. “I was really tempted by the offer to direct The Bell Jar,” Snyder said in a report to CineMag Online. “But when Bad Robot offered me a future chance to direct The Fountainhead if I took the reins of the young Han Solo film, that settled it. Besides, they’re doing a different take on that one, making it an action comedy film, and I think I have the experience to tackle comedy.” It is unknown at this time if that last comment was meant to be funny.
Harrison Ford’s reaction was as expected. “Look, it was a paycheck. Was it a fun role? Yes. Of course. But I don’t get all mushy about it. Another take on Solo is fine. I don’t own the character.”
Carrie Fisher was a tad more distraught about it, and was unusually at a loss for words.
Gary could not be reached for comment.
