Maybe the Boba Fett movie won't suck
It's funny how popular Boba Fett has become, considering how little the character actually did in the Star Wars movies.
He stood around various bad guys and then he accidentally fell into that man-eating butthole on Tatooine—a death that was more like a Kevin James gag.
Yet, probably because he's so cool looking, the character has become a fan favourite. And now he's getting his own movie.
James Mangold will write and direct a Boba Fett stand-alone movie, according to The Hollywood Reporter. The director is reportedly co-writing with Simon Kinberg, with whom he worked on the critically acclaimed Logan.
This isn't the first time a Boba Fett movie was in development, as Entertainment Weekly reports, "This comes nearly three years after the project was backburnered when Lucasfilm parted ways with then-director Josh Trank (Chronicle, Fantastic 4)."
Hey, we know how Boba Fett's story ends. Maybe everything before that will be way cooler.
