Boba Fett will reportedly be the focus of one of the upcoming Star Wars spinoff movies.

A standalone film centred on the bounty hunter is being written by Lawrence Kasdan, according to Metalocalypse director Jon Schnepp.

Speaking about the Star Wars spinoff projects in an interview with AMC Movie Talk, Schepp said: "One of them 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."

Last February, Disney confirmed that it was working on stand-alone Star Wars movies alongside Jj Abrams's Episode VII.

The spinoff films will be released within the same timeframe as the three main Stars Wars movies planned by Disney.

Star Wars Episode VII is scheduled for a December 18, 2015 cinema release. It is yet to announce any official castings.
