Star Wars' Boba Fett to Get Standalone Movie with James Mangold as Director!

On the heels of Solo: A Star Wars Story‘s release in theaters, a Boba Fett movie has been confirmed and filmmaker James Mangold will be writing and directing it!

Mangold most recently co-wrote and directed the X-Men movie Logan and he earned an Oscar nomination for Best Adapted Screenplay.

Boba Fett is a fan favorite character first introduced to the Star Wars universe in 1980′s Empire Strikes Back. The character as an adult has a Mandalorian helmet over his face and has practically no lines, but still made a huge impact in the franchise. Boba Fett (who appears in the prequels as a kid) was supposedly killed off by Han Solo in 1983′s Return of the Jedi and fans were hoping for him to make an appearance in Solo, but he doesn’t.

THR also reports that an Obi-Wan Kenobi movie is in the works!

Hugh Jackman Won't Play Wolverine Again, Despite Possible Disney & Fox Merger

Hugh Jackman shares a laugh with Logan director James Mangold at a lunch to celebrate their movie on Monday (December 11) at The Whitby Hotel in New York City.

The guys were joined for the event by Patrick Stewart.

Hugh has said that Logan was his last time playing the Wolverine character, but he also has said in the past that he would love to play Wolverine in an Avengers movie if a deal ever was worked out between Disney and Fox. Well, now there are talks about the two studios merging, so the X-Men characters potentially can join the Marvel Cinematic Universe.

“It’s interesting because for the whole 17 years I kept thinking that would be so great, like I would love to see, particularly, Iron Man and the Hulk and Wolverine together,” Hugh said in a new interview with Collider. “And every time I saw an Avengers movie I could just see Wolverine in the middle of all of them like punching them all on the head. But it was like, ‘Oh well, that’s not gonna happen,’ and it was interesting just when I first saw that headline – it was just the possibility of it and who knows what’s gonna happen, obviously – I was like, ‘Hang on!’ But I think, unfortunately, the ship has sailed for me, but for someone else I would like to see Wolverine in there.”

He was joined by his co-stars Patrick Stewart and Dafne Keen, as well as director James Mangold.

As Logan is set some years in the future, Hugh had to get his makeup done to look older than he really is, but he says Deborra-Lee was a fan!

“She quite liked it, which gives me hope because I had to wear a wig for the old salt and pepper,” Hugh told Entertainment Tonight. “I’m good for another 15 years I think.”

Exactly one year ago to the day – in Miami reading the first hard copy of LOGAN. @wponx @20thcenturyfox

Hugh Jackman's 'Logan' Director Explains Why It's Not for Kids

Hugh Jackman‘s new Wolverine movie Logan is coming out soon, but it’s important for parents to know that this is not a film for kids.

The 48-year-old actor was joined by co-stars Patrick Stewart and Dafne Keen, as well as director James Mangold, at a photo call for the movie on Friday (February 17) in Berlin, Germany.

“It’s important that movies that reference pop culture and are franchises and have large national audiences do something more than sell Happy Meals or t-shirts but make audiences ask questions,” James said about the movie’s R rating (via Deadline). “This is not a movie for kids. The ratings exist for a reason and this is not a movie made for children. We cannot explore the questions of violence if we can’t make movies [for adults].”
