“Boba Fett? Boba Fett? Where?” Where? In his own standalone movie, apparently! According to Variety, a Boba Fett spinoff film is in the works! Variety reports that Logan director James Mangold is attached to the film, as well as Simon Kinberg (writer-producer of the X-Men movies). Disney and Lucasfilm have yet to officially announce any new on this though, so keep checking StarWars.com for information.
Masters of the Universe
He-Man is returning to the big screen! Sony Pictures and Mattel have partnered for the movie, and have selected Aaron and Adam Nee to direct.
