On the May 24, 2018 episode of /Film Daily, /Film editor-in-chief Peter Sciretta is joined by /Film senior writer Ben Pearson to talk about the latest film and tv news, including Sinemia, George RR Martin, Michael Bay’s Netflix movie and Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge. We’ll also try to answer a question in the Mail Bag about who is responsible for the creation of a film, and we’ll run the audio from my interview with Solo: A Star Wars Story director Ron Howard.

In the News:

 

In The Mail Bag: Owen from Los Angeles writes in, “So I know there has been a lot of talk about this Wall Street Journal article that attributes 70% of the finished Solo film to Ron Howard and 30% to Lord & Miller but I thought it would be a really interesting discussion to dissect what that means. Sure Howard shot 70% of the actual film but he didn’t cast the movie, do the Pre-Vis, hire the key crew (including DP) or set the look and style of the film. So is this film more Howard or Lord and Miller. I’d argue that Howard played with the toys that Lord and Miller left. I think this is an interesting discussion because I had the same feeling with Ant Man. In many ways that film is more squarely in Peyton’s camp since he entirely directed the film but Edgar cast a lot of the key roles (if not all, right?), did all the pre-vis and set a lot of the style (ie costumes etc.) Also McKay set a lot of the comedic tone with the script before Peyton was onboard. So it’s interesting in many ways to have such strong cooks in the kitchen.  I think Ant Man benefited by all those collabs.I just think the amount of screen time one directed does not a movie make.”
