LOGAN Director in Talks for BOBA FETT Film

The cause of the spinoff's disappointing performance may be due to Star Wars fatigue

Disney will roll out Solo: A Star Wars Story in 4,381 theaters this weekend, the fifth widest release in history, just barely beating out Iron Man 3 by one theater (4,380). The House of the Mouse expanded the Galaxy Far, Far Away with spinoffs focused on smaller stories set apart from the main Skywalker saga.

Hollywood Reporter first broke the news. The rest of the top five includes Avengers: Infinity War ($21 million, $605 million total domestic, $1.7 billion total worldwide), Book Club ($12 million, $22 million total) and Life of the Party ($6 million, $33 million total). But the studio has been developing its slate of character-driven standalone Star Wars films for a while now.

Solo: A Star Wars Story will likely have the lowest three-day (Friday through Sunday) tally, which we're projecting at $110.5 million, since Disney purchased LucasFilm in 2012. And though the character met his untimely demise at the tentacles of the Sarlacc in Return of the Jedi, George Lucas elaborated on Boba Fett's origin in the second prequel film, Attack of the Clones. Despite having a helmet over his face, no lines and a very limited screen appearance that ended in his death, the character, with his jet pack and battle-scared armor, grew to cult status. Well, after months of uncertainty and speculation, we finally know what's happening with the bounty hunter.

Per the report, Simon Kinberg - screenwriter of The Martian, as well as several X-Men movies - was rumored to be involved with a Boba Fett movie, though it's unclear if that is still the case (or if that was even the same movie). According to Deadline, he's still attached to the film as a producer.

We have room in this universe for a Boba Fett movie and a Princess Leia movie. A Star Wars movie is breaking box office records!

Fortunately, it seems the Boba Fett movie has been resurrected, sources confirm to EW. This comes almost three years after the project was backburnered when Lucasfilm parted ways with then-director Josh Trank (Chronicle, Fantastic 4). The Boba Fett project would, of course, be another. Both outlets also mentioned in the same breath that a standalone Obi-Wan Kenobi film, which they reported being in development back in August, still doesn't have a writer attached.
