You and me both. Aside from the useless "creative differences" boilerplate, the only story I heard as that Kasdan Jr. went whining to Kennedy about them adapting his super cereal script as a comedy, Kennedy told them to play it straight, they said no, and she fired them. I believe this just because it explains why L3's character zig-zagged between "serious" and "OTT joke-" the act of reshooting much of the movie then doing a Frankenstein for the final product meant that the tone was all over the place.I really do wonder what was going on with Miller and Lord's Solo.
Also, the actor they got for Han needing acting lessons took a bizarre turn for me when I saw Hail, Caesar! A movie where he played the durotagonist and did a capable job as a character that strongly resembled but was of course legally distinct from Roy Rogers. It makes a bit more sense if he was cast to star in a sci-fi comedy and got jammed into a sci-fi drama halfway through.
Yeah, but the specifics are unknown and probably secured by NDAs enforced by blood sucking lawyers. It could be anything from a step-by-step outline to a few sentences scribbled on a cocktail napkin.The films being made without a plan, doesn't mean there weren't ideas or a plan.
