It seems as if today is going to be a Star Wars rumor day. First up we have the rumor that Lawrence Kasdan, the screenwriter for Episode V, Episode VI, and Episode VII is currently wring a stand-alone Boba Fett movie.
The rumor started to circulate when AMC’s own Jon Schneoo reported:
“One of [the Star Wars spinoffs] is Boba Fett. It is. I know. I know for a fact. I will never reveal my source, but it is the one written by Lawrence Kasdan.”
Schmoesknow.com has a very reliable “source” and they state that this rumor/ report is true. This would place the Boba Fett movie after Garth Edwards’ film because his film is being written by Gary Whitta. So would that mean Kasdan’s script would be the 2018 or the 2020 stand-alone film?
All this speculation and rumors of course. We don’t even know who the three stand-alone films will feature, officially. The only person who knows the truth is Lawrence Kasdan. Personally, I think Joe Johnston (Captain America, The Rocketeer) should get a shot at directing the Boba Fett movie. He did co-create the character and has spoken of the want to do a Boba Fett movie for years.
