Ron Howard stepped in to direct after Chris Miller and Phil Lord were fired

The actor-writer-musician, who plays Lando Calrissian in the upcoming and still untitled Han Solo Star Wars movie, covers The Hollywood Reporter's latest issue, where he candidly admits that he was a little anxious when he heard that the film's original directors, Phil Lord and Christopher Miller, had been fired, with Ron Howard stepping in to replace them.

During a recent interview, Glover's friend Chance The Rapper revealed that they'd been working on some new music, so it doesn't look like Gambino's going anywhere any time soon. "You guys have been very instrumental in my music".

"I'm not the type of person to rush anything", he said. Talking to Clara Amfo on BBC Radio 1, Donald revealed that he'd already been working on new material, and that living in the United Kingdom had been the catalyst. "Where I'm like, 'I do what I want when I want to do it, and trust me because I also want to make you money'".

"But to be completely honest, it's nearly ready", Glover added. "London has been very inspirational".

In a profile on the actor in The Hollywood Reporter, Glover - who plays a young Lando Calrissian in the Han Solo movie, and is making the press rounds following his best lead actor in a comedy series Emmy nomination for "Atlanta" - opened up a little about the "Star Wars" drama, and working with the new director, Ron Howard. As he told THR, "I definitely have a chip on my shoulder. about things not happening the way I think they should". "But then there's Childish Gambino, but I knew there's an issue about retiring the name", Amfo said. "Maybe he saw it from other planets and was like, 'I want to be that.'" Glover said. "You know, I like it when something's good and when it comes back there's a reason to come back, there's a reason to do that".
