‘Logan’ director James Mangold to write and direct ‘Boba Fett’ movie

Just as the Han Solo prequel lands in theaters, big news arrives for Star Wars fans: the Boba Fett film is happening and Logan director James Mangold has been given the greenlight to write and direct.

THR broke the news, adding that “It was rumored that Simon Kinberg, the writer-producer behind the X-Men franchise and films such as The Martian, was working on a Boba Fett movie. While Lucasfilm and Disney won’t make any official confirmation, sources say that Mangold will co-write the script with Kinberg, who will also produce the Boba Fett project. Kinberg and Mangold are close, having worked on Logan, the X-Men spin-off that earned high praise last year.”

Mangold is coming off the success of Logan, which triumphed with critics and audiences alike, and went on to earn an Oscar nomination for Best Adapted Screenplay, big news for a comic book film.

Boba Fett was introduced in 1980’s Empire Strikes Back and then appeared in 1983’s Return of the Jedi as the mercenary who brings Han Solo to the slug-like crime lord Jabba the Hutt. The character has become of the most popular characters in the entire franchise.
