A Boba Fett Solo Film Will Redeem (Or Further Ruin) The Character

Mangold worked on X-Men films such as 2017's Logan, which he wrote and directed.

The news comes days before Solo: A Star Wars Story, a standalone film documenting the rise of the Star Wars universe's beloved smuggler, is primed to arrive in theaters. We learned more about the character in "Attack of the Clones", which revealed the contract killer to be a clone of Jango Fett - whose decapitation in front of his clone/son apparently inspires young Boba to turn to a life of crime.

Fett became a popular character after his inclusion in 1980's Empire Strikes Back film where he was played by Jeremy Bulloch.

Paul scored 18 of his 20 points in the second half to help Houston take a 3-2 series lead. If you can shimmy on someone else , you gotta be alright getting shimmied on.

According to the Hollywood Reporter, James Mangold, director of the fantastic X-Men spin-off movie Logan, is set to helm. Fett succeeded in his mission and took Han Solo back to Jabba's Palace, where he would meet an untimely end in the Sarlac Pitt.

Which is why we were so excited to learn that a Boba Fett movie is indeed happening all these decades later, and the man behind the Wolverine and Logan movies is on the job. Star Wars: Episode IX will then follow on December 20, 2019.

The Boba Fett movie has had a bit of a rocky development process. As The Hollywood Reporter revealed previous year, Stephen Daldry (Billy Elliot, The Hours) is now in talks to direct an Obi-Wan spinoff. I wouldn't expect either the Boba Fett or Obi-Wan projects to launch earlier than 2020.

Trump’s Lawyer Invited to Classified Briefing on Investigation of Trump
Mark Warner (D-Va.), the top Democrat on the Senate Intelligence Committee, later criticized their presence at the latter meeting. The invite list evolved up until hours before the meeting - a reflection of the partisan distrust and the political wrangling.

The Clone Wars animated series further hinted at his evolution into a fearsome bounty hunter and his desire to avenge his father's death, but Boba's actual personality still largely remains a blank slate.

But despite the character's enduring popularity, the Twitter reaction to this news is largely negative.

Of course, plot details are being kept tightly under wraps - and will be for quite some time - but fans will definitely be pleased to hear that Boba Fett is finally getting his own standalone outing. The character has always been a fan favorite.
