The Second Star Wars Spin-Off Movie Will Focus On Boba Fett

2 hours ago | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

The planned second movie in the Star Wars stand-alone ‘anthology’ series will reportedly focus on a back story to one of the saga’s most famous characters, the bounty hunter Boba Fett.

The character, who first appeared in The Empire Strikes Back, Return Of The Jedi, and then in the prequels that followed, is widely loved amongst the Star Wars fan base, and if The Wrap is to be believed, the anthology film, to be released in 2018, will be based around him and a group of bounty hunters.

Lucasfilm are currently looking for a director for the project after Chronicle and Fantastic Four helmer Josh Trank jumped ship due to ‘personal reasons’ late last week.

He had this to say on his departure:

“After a year of having the incredible honor of developing with the wonderful and talented people at Lucasfilm, I’m making a personal decision to move forward on a different path. »

Star Wars: 2018's film will be Boba Fett origin story

5 hours ago | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

The second standalone Star Wars movie is set to tell the story of Boba Fett, it's being reported.

We already know that the first standalone Star Wars Anthology movie, which goes by the name of Rogue One, will be arriving in cinemas at the end of 2016. Godzilla's Gareth Edwards is directing, and Felicity Jones has signed up to star.

At the end of last week, we learned too of a change of personnel with regards the second Star Wars Anthology film, that's due in cinemas in 2018. Chronicle and Fantastic Four's Josh Trank had been due to direct that one, but he departed the projected, and the search is on for a new director.

In the meantime, though, it seems we've discovered just what the 2018 standalone Star Wars movie will be about. And, as had been rumoured, it looks like we're going to get a Boba Fett origin movie. »

Boba Fett is rumoured to be the focus of second Star Wars spinoff movie

7 hours ago | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

The second Star Wars anthology film may serve up a Boba Fett origin story, according to reports.

A spinoff focused on the Mandalorian warrior has been rumoured for sometime, but now The Wrap reports that it could follow Star Wars: Rogue One.

Josh Trank recently quit as director of the highly-anticipated project, which is slated to hit cinemas in 2018.

Last summer, the filmmaker was revealed as one of two directors helming movies that exist in the Star Wars universe while not directly connected to Jj Abrams's The Force Awakens.

Godzilla director Gareth Edwards is on board for Star Wars Anthology: Rogue One. Rogue One is set to star Felicity Jones and Ben Mendelsohn in a story based around a heist of the Death Star.

Boba Fett is a notorious bounty hunter in the Star Wars universe, having worked with the Empire, Darth Vader and Jabba the Hutt.

Second Star Wars Anthology movie will reportedly focus on Boba Fett

12 hours ago | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Happy Star Wars Day everyone! After new images and details from Star Wars: The Force Awakens debuted online earlier today [see here and here], The Wrap is now reporting that the second spin-off in the Star Wars Anthology series is set to focus on the origin and backstory of Boba Fett.

Due for release in 2018, the second Anthology movie was to have been directed by Chronicle and Fantastic Four director Josh Trank, although he exited the project this past week and the film is now seeking a new director before it goes before the camera sometime next year.

The character of Boba Fett first appeared on film in the second Star Wars film The Empire Strikes Back and also appearing in Return of the Jedi before featuring as a young boy alongside his father Jango Fett in the middle chapter of the prequel trilogy, Attack of the Clones. It is expected that the »

Second Star Wars Spinoff Will Focus on Boba Fett

13 hours ago | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

The next Star Wars spinoff film will focus on the origin story of beloved bounty hunter Boba Fett.  According to The Wrap, while Gareth Edwards' Star Wars Anthology: Rogue One will delve into the world of rebel fighters, the second Star Wars spinoff is about bounty hunters. Last week, Chronicle director Josh Trank left the film, and while he claimed in a statement that it was a personal decision, insiders say Disney was concerned that Trank showed “erratic behavior” during the production of his new film Fantastic Four. Personally, I thought giving Trank a Star Wars film based solely on Chronicle seemed like a huge show of trust, and Disney and Lucasfilm moved a little too fast on choosing him. This is opposed to Edwards, who had a huge hit with Godzilla before being hired to direct the first Star Wars spinoff.

9 incredible low-budget science fiction movies: Moon, Monsters, Primer

2 May 2015 1:30 AM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

The advent of nimble digital cameras and cutting edge visual effects has meant that filmmakers have been able to mount increasingly ambitious sci-fi stories on relatively small budgets.

This week sees the release of Monsters: Dark Continent, a follow-up to Gareth Edwards' brilliant 2010 debut Monsters. Not only did Monsters shoot Edwards to the big time, putting him in the director's chair for Godzilla and next year's Star Wars: Rogue One, but it also only cost less than $500,000 to make.

Below, we look at 11 incredible science fiction movies that prove you can make a great movie for just a fraction of what Avengers: Age of Ultron cost ($280 million, apparently!).

Dark Star (1974)

Production budget: $60,000

How many could you make for the price of Avengers: 4666

Why it's essential viewing: Before he made his trio of classics Assault on Precinct 13, Halloween and The Thing, John Carpenter directed this trippy sci-fi about »

Josh Trank's Departure (Firingc) from 'Star Wars' Spinoff Opens Some Questions

1 May 2015 10:19 PM, PDT | Rope of Silicon | See recent Rope Of Silicon news »

During Star Wars Celebration in mid-April there was to be a panel featuring directors Gareth Edwards and Josh Trank, both of which were set to direct spinoff films in the new Star Wars Anthology -- Edwards directing Rogue One, releasing next year, and Trank directing a yet-to-be-titled feature. While that panel took place, Trank was a no show, the reason given that he was sick. Well, it turns out it was more than just a sickness. Announced this evening, Trank released a statement on the official Star Wars website saying: After a year of having the incredible honor of developing with the wonderful and talented people at Lucasfilm, I'm making a personal decision to move forward on a different path. I've put a tremendous amount of thought into this, and I know deep down in my heart that I want to pursue some original creative opportunities. That said, the Star Wars »

Josh Trank has quit as director of the second Star Wars spinoff.

The Fantastic Four director announced in a joint statement from Lucasfilm on Friday (May 1) that he recently reached a decision to leave the highly-anticipated project.

Avengers: Age of Ultron | Review

The Wrath of Bland: Whedon’s Poo Poo Platter Continues

Mainstream event cinema continues to shackle box office glory and narrative familiarity to a creative deathbed as Joss Whedon returns with another glossy Marvel chapter in Avengers: Age of Ultron. The sort of film impervious to critical praise or derision, it’s fair to say that Whedon’s considerable talents at least place his super hero efforts in top shelf status, but to what end? His endless cavalcade of varyingly skilled superheroes make for more purposeful entertainment than Michael Bay and his own never-ending Transformers cash cow. But Whedon’s helming the exact same kind of inevitability. Where’s the tension when we already presume there will be another sequel or spinoff? For every ounce of visual glory on display in this latest chapter, there’s an equal detraction in character development, dialogue, or narrative dissonance. But the core audience »

Monsters: Dark Continent review

29 April 2015 5:10 AM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Giant alien creatures spread to the Middle East in the sequel Monsters: Dark Continent. Here's Ryan's review...

Giant bioluminescent space creatures dominated the horizon but not the plot in Gareth Edwards’ breakthrough film, Monsters. Shot run-and-gun style by Edwards and a tiny crew, Monsters was an unusual blend of road-trip drama with light touches of sci-fi; its focus was the growing friendship between a photograph journalist (Scoot McNairy) and his boss's daughter (Whitney Able) travelling across a Central America ravaged not so much by the title’s Lovecraftian kaiju but by a military intent on keeping them well away from American soil.

Monsters’ success saw Edwards move to Hollywood, where he’s so far headlined the daddy of all kaiju movies, Godzilla, and now set to head up another pop culture giant - the Star Wars spin-off, Rogue One. This left production company Vertigo with a potential franchise on its hands, »

Tom Green interview: Monsters: Dark Continent and Misfits

29 April 2015 4:00 AM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

With Monsters: Dark Continent out in UK cinemas this weekend, director Tom Green talks to us about filming in the desert, Misfits and more.

In 2010, British director Gareth Edwards made a huge splash with his feature debut Monsters, a road trip drama with giant monsters stalking around in the background. It was an atmospheric movie that made ingenious use of its low budget; Monsters' success led to Edwards departing for Hollywood, where coveted franchises like Godzilla and Star Wars awaited.

Five years later, and director Tom Green brings us Monsters: Dark Continent, an entirely new story set in the same world as the first movie. A decade after a Nasa probe crashed in Mexico, bringing the giant monsters to Earth, their lumbering threat has spread to the Middle East. The Us Airforce is dispatched to bomb the creatures to prevent their spread, while on the ground, American troops try »

Director: Tom Green

Cast: Sam Keeley, Johnny Harris, Joe Dempsie

Run Time: 100 minutes

Certificate: 15

Synopsis: Ten years after Monsters, the invading creatures have infected a lot more of the Earth, with the Middle East becoming overrun.

After a squad of soldiers goes missing behind enemy lines it’s up to battle-worn Sergeant Frater (Harris) to lead a squad full of fresh recruits on a rescue mission deep into monster territory.

Gareth Edwards’ 2010 film Monsters is seen by many as one of the most original and innovative movies of this century. Edwards’ managed to craft a thought-provoking sci-fi monster movie on a shoe-string budget. Rather than other films that dealt with invading aliens, this one was devoid of massive set pieces and the White House being blown up. Instead the »
