🚨Boba Fett Movie Being Cowritten By X-Men's Simon Kinberg🚨 -
Simon Kinberg, who is known for producing Fox's X-Men films, will reportedly co-write the Boba Fett standalone movie alongside James Mangold. Mangold, who also set to direct that Lucasfilm project has worked with Kinberg in the past, most recently with the critically-acclaimed, Logan. Aside from his Star Wars gig, Kinberg is also busy working on X-Men: Dark Phoenix, which will be his directorial debut. Kinberg will be co-writing the story for the Anthology film centering on the famous bounty hunter with Mangold. Nothing is currently known regarding the plot details of the film, but many fans are especially excited about it because of Mangold's involvement. Kinberg is not new to franchise set in the galaxy far, far away. For a time, he was rumored to write (alongside Lawrence Kasdan) and produce Episode VIII and Star Wars: Episode IX. While that did not come into fruition, he remained involved by being one of the writers, producers, and co-creators of the recently finished animated TV, Star Wars Rebels, spearheaded by Dave Filoni. Lucasfilm remains mum on the reported project, and it's curious if the Disney subsidiary will release an official statement regarding the matter (they have still yet acknowledged the countless rumors about the supposed Obi-Wan film). That said, back in March, a separate report suggested that Kinberg is"currently writing a forthcoming Star Wars movie," corroborating with this latest intel.
