James Mangold, the writer and director of Logan, reportedly is set to pull double duty on a standalone Star Wars movie focused around bounty hunter Boba Fett.
THR reports Mangold will write and direct the film, which would follow in line with the “A Star Wars Story” standalone features Lucasfilm has released alongside the main, episodic Star Wars films. No story details about the solo film have been revealed yet, however.
IGN has reached out to Lucasfilm for comment and will update this story should they respond.
A Boba Fett Star Wars movie from Fantastic Four director Josh Trank was reportedly in the works and allegedly supposed to follow Rogue One as the next Star Wars anthology film. Trank reportedly left the project in 2015, though plans for it had apparently progressed far enough that reports suggested a Boba Fett movie announcement was canceled “at the last minute” in 2015.
