Director of US TV show Metalocalypse Jon Schnepp has claimed to know, ‘for a fact’, that Disney is planning a Star Wars spin-off movie focusing on intergalactic bounty hunter Boba Fett.
Disney has already outlined plans to bring a number of standalone Star Wars movies to the big screen in the near future, with rumours circulating that Yoda, Jabba the Hutt and a young Han Solo will also get their own movies at some stage.
“One of them is Boba Fett,” Schnepp told AMC Movie News.
“It is. I know. I know for a fact. I will never reveal my source, but it is the one written by Lawrence Kasdan.”
Kasdan was the screenwriter on both The Empire Strikes Back and Return of the Jedi.
Star Wars: Episode VII, directed by JJ Abrams, lands in cinemas on December 18th, 2015.
