STAR WARS: Lawrence Kasdan Confirmed To Write BOBA FETT Solo Movie?

STAR WARS: Lawrence Kasdan Confirmed To Write BOBA FETT Solo Movie?

We already knew Kasdan was writing one of the standalone Star Wars flicks for Disney and co., and now the Schmoes reckon they've confirmed that it'll be the solo adventures of the galaxy far far away's most notorious bounty hunter. More past the jump.


Although it still hasn't been made official, the rumor mill has claimed time and time again that one of the standalone Star Wars movies in the pipeline will focus on infamous bounty hunter Boba Fett -- and now a source for our pals at the Schmoes seem to have conformed it. Not only that, they reckon legendary Empire Strikes Back (the movie in which Fett debuted incidentally) screenwriter Lawrence Kasdan will be on writing duties. This isn't the first time we've heard the rumor, but, the Schmoes are also hearing that Kasdan will be taking some influence from one of the Expanded Universe stories. Now that does not mean a direct adaptation of "Tales of the Bounty Hunters" or whatever, merely that he'll be using certain elements from some of the Boba Fett tales that are already out there. We already know that both Gareth Edwards (Godzilla) and Josh Trank (Chronicle) are taking the helm of two of these standalone movies...will one of 'em wind up with Fett? More at the link below.

Remember when I use to call Enphlieuwince 'Enphil-whatever'?

Good times...

Schnepp was right?

ruadh - 6/11/2014, 11:44 AM
I could have sworn this was known already...

Either way, I'm skeptical. Boba is one of those that seems to work far better when mysterious. Aotc kinda neutered him a bit.

They're gonna kill a good thing here, I can see it coming.

@ ruadh

yeah! to much of him will ruin him. At least with the books you got the backstory in depth to make him cool. This will be a anti-hero crapfest.

Did you know Boba Fett was actually just a nerdy accountant?

ALegendaryPanda - 6/11/2014, 11:49 AM
How the hell is this a bad thing?! I swear you people just log on to complain about everything, damn.
MrBlackJack - 6/11/2014, 11:49 AM
Hmm....I'm not sure if I'm down with this yet.

If true, this is good news. Just want to know who's directing.
wookiefit - 6/11/2014, 11:51 AM
Boba escapes the Pit using hid rocket pack. Dengar was above the Pit and helped him, making them life-long friends. He fkies back once a year to use his afterburners to scortch it.

Thank you batz. The hunt is on
batz11 - 6/11/2014, 11:52 AM
I wanna a wookie stand-alone movie...
ndwwrestler2 - 6/11/2014, 11:52 AM
Make it a Dredd-like movie and it could work.
ALegendaryPanda - 6/11/2014, 11:52 AM

Gareth Edwards most likely
wookiefit - 6/11/2014, 11:52 AM
I hope they at least get Karen Traviss to write the story. That's one way I'd have faith in it.
NovaCorpsFan - 6/11/2014, 11:53 AM
wookiefit - Ha, I did not know he went back and scorched the Sarlaac. Jesus, what a prick.
Dustellar - 6/11/2014, 11:53 AM
@batz11 Booby Fett :P

batz, that was in my poor college years when I was a starving artist trying to make ends meet.

Chewbacca that is ;) Not sure if I want to read captions all movie long...
sKeemAn - 6/11/2014, 11:58 AM
I want to see him go up against some weird alien types for Jabba.
CherryBomb - 6/11/2014, 11:59 AM
I can't believe I've never really seen Star Wars :( I hate myself.
One of you guys is gonna have to introduce it to me and explain it's universe to me.

TheBuoyWonder - 6/11/2014, 12:01 PM
When will these movies be set in time though?
Will this be an origin story of sorts?
DaVinci31 - 6/11/2014, 12:01 PM
"They're gonna kill a good thing here, I can see it coming."

What good thing? Boba Fett is one of the lamest characters in the franchise. They actually have a chance to make something better here.

You're not missing much...
McNyagano - 6/11/2014, 12:04 PM
Who the hell is BOBA FETT?
DocDangerous - 6/11/2014, 12:04 PM
Barring the EU, Boba Fett didn't do a damn thing besides stand by Vader and get knocked off the skiff.
