Ever since it was revealed that Warner Bros. was developing a Suicide Squad spin-off, revolving around Margot Robbie's Harley Quinn and the Gotham City Sirens, one question about the project was whether it would include an appearance by Harley's on-again, off-again boyfriend, the Joker (played in Suicide Squad by Oscar winner Jared Leto).
Today’s official announcement that Oscar winner Ron Howard will replace Phil Lord and Chris Miller as the director of the Han Solo movie indicates that Lucasfilm is not looking to significantly shake things up when it comes to their burgeoning Star Wars anthology films. The initial hiring of comedic directors Lord and Miller, the helmers behind the irreverent Jump Street flicks and The LEGO Movie, suggested an acerbic, but still loving take on the beloved franchise was in store.
On the heels of the news that Han Solo directors Phil Lord and Chris Miler were off the Star Wars spinoff mere weeks away from the completion of principal photography, three names have reportedly surfaced as possible 11th hour replacements. And all three filmmakers are past colleagues of Lucasfilm. According to The Hollywood Reporter, Oscar winner Ron Howard is a contender to step in to helm. Howard directed Willow, based on a story by George Lucas, for Lucasfilm back in 1988.
Muck Rack makes it simple to find people, tweets, or articles that mention any name, keyword, company, hashtag etc. We've compiled this guide to help you make the most of your search.
Selecting a term
Start searching tweets, articles from media outlets, articles mentioned in tweets, journalists'
names, titles and bios with some suggested searches:
Companies or Topics (e.g. iPhone, Microsoft)
Phrases (e.g. "cloud computing") — use quotes to keep the terms together
Twitter handles (e.g. @username) — returns those who have mentioned or replied to
Names (e.g. "David Pogue")
Hashtags (e.g. #sxsw, #london2012)
Bio details (e.g. vegan, Olympics, father)
Muck Rack's Advanced Search allows for many boolean operators.
Find results that mention multiple specified terms, use AND or
+. For example, ensure each result contains both Elon Musk and Mark Zuckerberg by
searching Obama AND Romney or Obama + Romney.
Use the operators OR or , to broaden your search when you'd like either of
multiple terms to appear in results. (This is the default behavior of our search when no operators
are used.) For example, search for democrat OR republican to find results that refer to
Democrats and/or Republicans.
Use NOT or - to subtract results from your search. For
example, searching Disney will yield results about the Walt Disney Company as well as Walt Disney
World Resort. To exclude mentions of Disney World, search for Disney -World or Disney
When using one of these operators with a phrase, enclose it in quotation marks. For example, you can
find results about smartphones excluding Apple's iPhone 4S by searching smartphone -"iPhone
Exact case matching or punctuation
If you're searching for a brand name or keyword that relies on specific punctuation marks or capitalization, you can
find results that match your exact query by adding matchcase: before the keyword you're searching for, like matchcase:E*TRADE .
Use parentheses to separate multiple
boolean phrases. For example, to find journalists talking about having fun in Disney World or
Disneyland, search for ("disney world" OR disneyland) AND fun.
An asterisk can be used to search for any variation of a root word truncated by the asterisk. For example, searching for admin* will return results for administrator, administration, administer, administered, etc.
A near operator is an AND operator where you can control the distance between the words. You can vary the distance the near operation uses by adding a forward slash and number (between 0-99) such as strawberries NEAR/10 "whipped cream", which means the strawberries must exist within 10 words of "whipped cream".
