“Logan” helmer James Mangold is set to write and direct a standalone “Star Wars” movie centered on the bounty hunter character Boba Fett.
“Dark Phoenix” director Simon Kinberg was previously rumored to be working on a Boba Fett movie and sources indicate he and Mangold will co-write the script with Kinberg also producing.
The news comes as Disney and Lucasfilm release the latest “A Star Wars Story” stand-alone film “Solo” on Friday – the second of the ‘anthology’ films.
Lucasfilm is also developing an Obi-Wan Kenobi film which has Stephen Daldry in negotiations to direct. That has no writers attached.
