STAR WARS: Is Lawrence Kasdan Working On The 'Boba Fett' Spin-Off Movie?

In an interview with AMC Movie Talk, Metalocalypse director Jon Schnepp seemingly confirms that a solo outing for the enigmatic bounty hunter is indeed in the works, with Empire Strikes Back scribe Lawrence Kasdan on writing duties. Read on for more.

Boba Fett remains one of the most popular Star Wars characters of all time - despite not really doing very much in either of the movies he appears in! We had heard various rumors that the Mandolorian bounty hunter would be the focus of one of the spin-off flicks said to be in the works at Disney/Lucasfilm, and now director Jon Schnepp seems to have confirmed as much..and he claims Lawrence Kasdan is on board as a writer too. "One of them is Boba Fett," he said of the planned spin-offs (via Yahoo) "It is. I know. I know for a fact. I will never reveal my source, but it is the one written by Lawrence Kasdan." Obviously until this is official we'll have to treat it as a rumor, no matter how certain Schnepp says he is. If Kasdan is the man to bring Fett back to our screens though, I can think of no better man for the job - after all he did co-create the character. Thoughts?

"As you wish."

"He's no good to me dead."

"Put Captain Solo in the cargo hold."

And even though that's all he ever said. He's a god damn fan favourite character.

@ NovaCorps

When was Boba Fett introduced to the public?
Nomis - 1/3/2014, 8:24 AM
Call it Boba Begins and get Chris Nolan to direct it. ;)

vtopa - 1/3/2014, 8:29 AM
well here is what the actor looks like today…maybe he should bulk up and not look like he serves drinks on a gay cruise…

NovaCorpsFan - 1/3/2014, 8:30 AM
Okay I'll add in Episode 2's lines.

"Sure. Dad, Ton-wi's here."

"Dad, look!"

"Dad, I think we're being tracked!"

"Get 'im dad, get 'im! Fire!"

maxleresistant - 1/3/2014, 8:31 AM
Can't wait for star wars to return to its former glory. I hope that all this don't get fricked up!!
Omarvls - 1/3/2014, 8:32 AM
So let me get this straight
Disney will do a Sequel Trilogy every other year and Spinoffs on the off years

Sounds a lot Like Marvel's blueprint
JoeMomma29 - 1/3/2014, 8:35 AM
Boba had a lot more line in the Holiday Special.

Nomis - 1/3/2014, 8:37 AM
@ Batz - LOL!!!! Awesome!
NovaCorpsFan - 1/3/2014, 8:37 AM
Well see, I didn't know that existed.

Nomis - 1/3/2014, 8:40 AM
@ supercat - LLLLOOOOOOLLLL!!!!!!

Boba can bogie!
JoeMomma29 - 1/3/2014, 8:42 AM
By the way that was how Boba Fett was introduced to the public before he was shown in the Empire Strikes Back. So the lucky few that tuned into that horrible SW Holiday Special knew who Boba Fett was going into the second the movie.

This is about the only Star Wars thing I'm even remotely interested in...
ndwwrestler2 - 1/3/2014, 8:47 AM
...I'm cool with it. Especially if Kasdan is onboard. The only thing I'm worried about is the Supporting cast. With a character like Fett, you need someone else in the movie to relate to (example: 2012 Dredd).
JoeMomma29 - 1/3/2014, 8:48 AM
Jango Fett/Boba Fett vs Darth Vadar/Luke in a dance off!

charlie2094 - 1/3/2014, 9:04 AM
Interesting, think a Fett film could work well with the right story. Would like to see a bridge film, set between Episodes 3 and 4, almost like the Force Unleashed games, think there'd be some interesting stories to tell there
JoeMomma29 - 1/3/2014, 9:09 AM
@ Charlie

Well take for instance the scene they cut out of Empire Strikes back where Boba Fett ambushes another Bounty IG-88. You can still see the remains of IG 88 in the movie when they are trying to throw C 3PO in the furnace.
JoeMomma29 - 1/3/2014, 9:14 AM
Here is a few pic, I really wished they did not cut out the scene.

JoeMomma29 - 1/3/2014, 9:14 AM
One more

NovaCorpsFan - 1/3/2014, 9:15 AM
They should make Force Unleashed movies. Those games bridge the gap really well and Boba is a prominent character in the second one. Hopefully they make a 3rd picking up with Boba tracking Starkiller's ship.
NovaCorpsFan - 1/3/2014, 9:16 AM

Is that Zuckuss and 4-LOM at the sides?
Nomis - 1/3/2014, 9:17 AM
DelTorite - 1/3/2014, 9:18 AM
Mandalorians.[frick] yeah!
JoeMomma29 - 1/3/2014, 9:19 AM
@ Nova

It could be, that has never been confirmed. The only confirmed was IG-88 in the original script IG-88 gets to Cloud City First and Boba Fett ambushes him and kills him.
DelTorite - 1/3/2014, 9:20 AM
And this guy deserves his own movie when Disney run out of ideas...

NovaCorpsFan - 1/3/2014, 9:28 AM

On second look, the one on the right is more likely Zuckuss. The one on the left looks more like armour.
Danbojohnj - 1/3/2014, 9:29 AM
Excellent,everything is proceeding as I have foreseen.

Get Tarantino to direct.
RetroFit - 1/3/2014, 9:31 AM
They've already ruined the mystery of Boba Fett, so whatever. Have at it. No matter WHAT they come up with, it can't be as bad as Kid Boba in the prequels. Jango was awesome, but Kid Boba was only exceeded in awfulness by Jar Jar, Kid Annie and Natalie Portman's acting. That's a lot of awful.
Danbojohnj - 1/3/2014, 9:33 AM
......and NO I ain't joking,get Tarantino to direct,throw money at him.
Danbojohnj - 1/3/2014, 9:36 AM
40+ year old Clint Eastwoodesque Boba badass scifi bounty hunter,never take off the helmet,Dredd style.

NovaCorpsFan - 1/3/2014, 9:45 AM
40+ year old Boba would be degenerating, ie. dying.
