James Mangold to Write and Direct ‘Boba Fett’ for Lucasfilm
James Mangold is set to write and direct a “Star Wars” standalone movie based on popular bounty hunter “Boba Fett,” according to a report by the Hollywood Reporter.
Stephen Daldry is also in talks to direct an “Obi Wan” movie, although no writers are working on a script.
Boba Fett is a Mandalorian warrior who was trained by his father-figure Jango Fett and became a notorious bounty hunter throughout the galaxy. His travels led him to work for the Empire, collaborate with Darth Vader and take assignments from figures such as Jabba the Hutt, for whom he once captured Han Solo.
