Mangold recently developed a huge fandom in the geek space for his efforts on the R-Rated 20th Century Fox film Logan, which took Hugh Jackman's X-Men character Wolverine to gritty new heights.
A background character who seemingly died in the following film, Return Of The Jedi, Boba Fett nonetheless quickly became one of the franchise's most popular creations.
As the outlet notes, a rumored Boba Fett movie from "X-Men" helmer Simon Kinberg was reportedly in the works, and it's unclear if this newly-revealed project from Mangold is different. Back in 2013, Disney and Lucasfilm announced one was in development with Josh Trank (Chronicle, Fantastic 4) as director, to follow Rogue One, but once Trank left the project, the new adventures of old Boba Fett were put on the back burner. Lucky for you all, I love the Star Wars and the fandom, so my partaking of an adult beverage in my brand-new Han Solo cup can wait. While the prospect of a Boba Fett movie will surely be exciting for some fans, it will probably be a while until we get to see the film.
Logan director James Mangold is in talks to direct a Star Wars "anthology" film based on Boba Fett, according to The Hollywood Reporter. Likely to be next up is the Obi-Wan Kenobi movie, that Stephen Daldry is looking favourite to direct.
Another big name which kept popping up was Boba Fett, with rumors that the proposed film would focus on his formative days as a bounty hunter.
Scott Wampler chimed in: "My scorching hot pitch for a BOBA FETT movie: don't make a BOBA FETT movie".
This series continued his journey, taking him from prison to the life of a bounty hunter, which Marvel Comics' Star Wars has further detailed. But the studio has been developing its slate of character-driven standalone Star Wars films for a while now. The character has always been a fan favorite.
