His backpack’s got jets and now he’s about to get a whole movie of his very own. Boba Fett, the enigmatic and fearsome bounty hunter who has long served as a Star Wars fan favorite, will be the subject of a stand-alone film written and directed by James Mangold, according to The Hollywood Reporter.
Though plot details for the film are being kept tightly under wraps, fans can trust that the character is in skilled hands. You might be familiar with Mangold’s previous work, which includes 2013’s The Wolverine and 2001’s Kate & Leopold. And sure, he was also nominated for real-life Oscars for his writing on 2017’s Logan and 2005’s Walk the Line, but what matters here is this guy was a writer on Disney’s Oliver & Company so he can be trusted to do whatever he wants forever now.
