When Disney bought Lucasfilm from George Lucas just over a year ago, it was announced that as well as the studio making an official Star Wars sequel every two years, they would also release a spin-off movie featuring various characters from the saga in the years in between.
Things have gone a little quiet on the subject after movies revolving around Han Solo and Yoda were heavily rumoured last year. Now it seems that filmmaker Jon Schnepp has spilled the beans that none other than Lawrence Kasdan in writing the screenplay for a Boba-Fett movie! Schnepp, who most recently directed the ‘W’ segment in horror ensemble The Abcs Of Death, let the news slip during an interview on Us channel AMC.
