After the well-documented directorial shake-up that occurred when Solo: A Star Wars Story was well into production, fans are curious to see the final result of the latest entry in the saga, which star Emilia Clarke as a childhood friend of the titular smuggler. In an interview with Vanity Fair, Clarke recounted another troubled production she was involved in – Terminator Genisys – and how word of the plagued project reached the crew of the disastrous Fantastic Four reboot.
Clarke recalled her experience working on Terminator Genisys, recounting how the crew on the latest Fantastic Four film – which was experiencing difficulties of its own – wore t-shirts expressing their relief to at least not be a part of the Terminator team.
The outlet writes:
News of the rocky production traveled, and Clarke says the crew on the famously disastrous Fantastic Four, which was filming nearby, even had jackets made that read, AT LEAST WE’RE NOT ON TERMINATOR.

5 Reasons To Be Excited (And 5 Reasons To Worry) About ‘Solo: A Star Wars Story’
It’s been roughly five months since The Last Jedi came out, which means it’s time for another Star Wars movie! The second anthology film that explores the Star Wars universe’s past, Solo follows a young Han Solo as he becomes a smuggler. Before he had the Millennium Falcon or considered Luke Skywalker one of his best friends, Han was still talking and blasting his away across the galaxy.
A new Star Wars film is typically a cause for celebration, but there’s something different about Solo. The posters and print material all look fun and stylized, but the actual trailer looks gray and unsatisfying. There are a lot of things propping this movie up, mainly that it is about Han Solo, arguably the most popular character in the entire franchise, but there are also a lot of things dragging it down. Hopefully Solo will kick butt, but without Harrison Ford at the center of the action, it’s hard to say!
