Star Wars: Boba Fett movie coming from James Mangold

Star Wars: Boba Fett movie coming from James Mangold

Fan favorite bounty hunter Boba Fett may finally be getting his own movie, if a new report is to be believed. The Hollywood Reporter says that there were rumors that Simon Kinberg, who worked with Mangold on Logan, was working "on a Boba Fett movie". The first anthology film was 2016's "Rogue One: A Star Wars Story", followed by "Solo: A Star Wars Story", starring Alden Ehrenreich as a young Han Solo.

The next character from the original Star Wars trilogy to get a whole feature to themselves will be the Mandalorian bounty hunter and right hand to Darth Vader Boba Fett, with a movie officially set to be directed by Logan director James Mangold. However, the studio is understood to have a bunch of films based on Star Wars characters in the works. "Solo" began opening in previews on Thursday night in North America, with forecasts of an debut weekend of $130 million to $150 million.

Well, it looks like those long-standing rumours of a Boba Fett Star Wars spin-off movie were very much on the money.

Boba Fett - played by Jeremy Bulloch in the movie - was subsequently seen in Return of the Jedi hanging around Jabba's palace, and is later seen being devoured in the Great Pit of Carkoon by the Sarlacc when the rebels break free. The "X-Men" standalone movie received an Oscar nomination for best adapted screenplay. Kinberg is repped by CAA.

Solo: A Star Wars Story will likely have the lowest three-day (Friday through Sunday) tally, which we're projecting at $110.5 million, since Disney purchased LucasFilm in 2012.

Hollywood Reporter first broke the news.
