Quoted from fosaisu:
Not seeing anything definitive popping up on Google, where are you guys looking? (Please tell me it's not filmgoblin.com ...)
Whether or not she's fired the whole Paul Feig replacement rumor seems a little nuts, would Disney really want to pull him off of their number one cash cow given the run he's on? Unless he's sick of Marvel and wants a new universe to play in, I suppose.
Heard two people mention it in some sort of "inside baseball" publication related to Disney. I'd mark it down as unverified for now.
Personally.. I'd be surprised if it happens. Iger placed KK in that position at Lucasfilm and at the last stockholders meeting indicated they were staying the course.
Iger has been very good at eliminating anyone who could be a threat to his rein at Disney. Unless there is a direct threat to him by the stockholders (its you or her) she isn't going anywhere.
Of course that was before Solo came out, and Solo is hurting bad. Numbers I have heard for production was 250 mil for shooting, 200 mil for re-shoots and 100 mil for marketing. Possible, but another source stated 150 mil for marketing. 80% of the movie was re-shot but the big expenses are on the CGI and that is all done last. Either way they spent a ton of cash on this one and its cratering.
$192 million domestic as of today, they have not even recouped the marketing expenditures let alone the primary production and re-shoots.
Incredibles 2? $180 million opening weekend.
