Logan Director James Mangold Will Write / Direct Boba Fett Movie

Just got out of my second viewing of Solo: A Star Wars Story to see this news from The Hollywood Reporter:

"The hunt is on.

James Mangold is writing and will direct a Star Wars stand-alone movie centered on Boba Fett, the feared bounty hunter and fan-favorite character, The Hollywood Reporter has exclusively learned.

It was rumored that Simon Kinberg, the writer-producer behind the X-Men franchise and films such as The Martian, was working on a Boba Fett movie. While Lucasfilm and Disney won’t make any official confirmation, sources say that Mangold will co-write the script with Kinberg, who will also produce the Boba Fett project. Kinberg and Mangold are close, having worked on Logan, the X-Men spinoff that earned high praise last year.

Details for the Boba Fett storyline are being kept deep in the Sarlacc Pit."

Here's hoping they get Daniel Logan, who played the character in Star Wars - Episode II: Attack of the Clones, to reprise the role for the new movie.
