So it goes in show business — due to scheduling conflicts with the Young Han Solo movie reshoots, Michael K. Williams’ role has been cut, according to Deadline. We’ve all been looking forward to the Young Han Solo movie since, like, literally before it was even a thing that could possibly happen.
So to hear that things haven’t exactly gone to plan is a little upsetting.
We’re sure, though, that it’s even more upsetting for Williams. Although details of the film are kept under lock and key, we do know that Williams played a half-animal, half-human character. When asked about his role, Williams said:
So urghhhhh, we’re sad to miss out!
But film schedules are notoriously difficult.
Especially when you’re dealing with in-demand talent like Williams, who was recently nominated for an Emmy for The Night Of. So we understand — and Williams seems to as well.
Of the reshoots, he said:
We’re sorry we’re going to miss out on what would’ve definitely been a cool character, but on the upside, Williams is open to returning to the Star Wars family down the line. And there’s the Young Han Solo movie in full to look forward to — it hits theaters on May 25th, 2018.
