It is finally confirmed, the long rumoured Boba Fett movie is in the works.
Disney is developing a 'Star Wars Story' movie centered on the bounty hunter Boba Fett, and it is to be directed and overseen by "Logan" director James Mangold.
Simon Kinberg, best known as a writer-producer on the “X-Men” movies, will collaborate with Mangold on the Bobba Fett movie as a co-writer and producer.
The untitled movie will be a part of the studio’s Star Wars Anthology films, which are being spun off as origin stories. The first anthology film was 2016’s highly successful “Rogue One: A Star Wars Story,” followed by a bumpy ride that was “Solo: A Star Wars Story,” starring Alden Ehrenreich as a young Han Solo.
For those that don't know, Boba Fett debuted in 1980’s “Star Wars: The Empire Strikes Back” and re-appeared in 1983’s “Star Wars: Return of the Jedi” as a mercenary for the Galactic Empire. Jeremy Bulloch played the character in the two movies and Jason Wingreen provided Fett’s voice.
