Star Wars Boba Fett Movie In Development From 'Logan' Director
Lucasfilm and Disney are hard at work on multiple Star Wars project, and the latest to join the list is yet another spinoff.
The new film in the works centers on Boba Fett, THR reports. The bounty hunter -- a clone of Jango Fett -- was first introduced in the original trilogy. In "Episode V -- The Empire Strikes Back" and "Episode VI -- Return of the Jedi," he worked under Darth Vader and Jabba the Hutt. The character later was part of "Episode II -- Attack of the Clones," the TV series "Star Wars: The Clone Wars," as well as numerous comic books, video games, and more.
Lucasfilm and Disney have tapped "Logan" director James Mangold to both write and direct the standalone movie. He has a number of high-profile films on his resume, including "Walk the Line" and "Girl, Interrupted." The Boba Fett project would, of course, be another.
The cloned bounty hunter is in good company when it comes to Star Wars universe characters set to be featured in their own film. Han Solo's smuggling days are the focus of the forthcoming "Solo: A Star Wars Story," and there is an Obi-Wan Kenobi movie currently in development.
