Boba Fett Is Apparently Copping A ‘Star Wars’ Flick ‘Cos Disney Can’t Stop

In yet another leap into the giant expanse of the Star Wars galaxy, Lucasfilm are reportedly developing another stand-alone film based on the bounty hunter Boba Fett. 

The exclusive hit the internet overnight by none other than The Hollywood Reporter. They’ve confirmed the man behind the camera will be James Mangold who has films like Logan, The Wolverine, and Girl Interrupted on the ol’ CV.

Mangold will also reportedly write the film.

Not confirmed but whispered to the publication by their ~ industry ~ sources, Simon Kinberg is rumoured to also be working on the film. You might know Kinberg for his work on the X-Men franchise and The Martian. 

Kinberg and Mangold are rumoured to co-write the film together. The two have previously teamed up on Logan. 

Disney and Lucasfilm have yet to confirm Kinberg’s part since they’re a tad occupied by another standalone film currently in cinemas Solo: A Star Wars Story. 

Boba Fett, who we first clasped eyes on in Empire Strikes Back, has also appeared in the TV series Clone Wars… but mostly as a deeply emo angry boy plotting his revenge on General Mace Windu for slicing his pa’s head off.

Good times.

Meanwhile, Lucasfilm really can’t be stopped because they have yet another standalone film apparently in the works. Obi-Wan Kenobi might be copping his own film (if Duchess Satine’s in it I’ll cry) which may or may not be directed by Stephen Daldry. 

Daldry directed the masterpiece that is Billy Elliot. 

Slight tangent here:

Though this is all speculation at the moment, Redditors have been debating whether or not Ewan McGregor’s been growing his Jedi facial hair back for months now.

No really, fans have been onto it since January 2018 

McGregor’s latest flick, Christopher Robin, will land in cinemas 3 August. 

Moving on – bearing in mind Boba is the genetic clone/sort of son of Jango Fett and so identical to all the clone troopers and since a y’huge majority of people believe the clones’ accents are Kiwi and not Australian, Taika Waititi for Boba Fett or?

Alden Ehrenreich is a young Han Solo so look, anything’s possible.

Solo: A Star Wars Story is in cinemas now.
