Fan favorite bounty hunter Boba Fett may finally be getting his own movie, if a new report is to be believed.

James Mangold has just been set to write and direct a spinoff about the Star Wars bounty hunter, according to The Hollywood Reporter. Mangold’s recent credits include Logan and The Wolverine.

The news comes just as another character-centric Star Wars spinoff, Solo: A Star Wars Story, hits theaters.

Han Solo and Boba Fett aren’t the only Star Wars characters embarking on standalone adventures. Lucasfilm allegedly has a number of unofficial spinoff projects in development, including a movie about Obi-Wan Kenobi that reportedly has Stephen Daldry in talks to direct.

The possibility of a Boba Fett movie has been swirling for some time now. A number of reports have said the bounty hunter was the subject of the film that director Josh Trank was working on — until Lucasfilm fired him after his antics on the set of Fantastic Four.

More recently, Simon Kinberg was rumored to be producing a Boba Fett project. It’s unclear if he’s involved with Mangold’s film.

No official confirmation or release date has been announced for the Boba Fett film, and no plot details were revealed in the report.

“Steve Spielberg is writing a horror series for the mobile-friendly streaming platform Quibi—but the caveat is, you’ll only be able to view it after the sun goes down.

The nighttime-confined series is aptly titled, Spielberg’s After Dark. According to Quibi founder Jeffrey Katzenberg, Spielberg “has already written five or six episodes” of a 10-or 12-part story. Quibi, short for “quick bites,” refers to episodes as chapters.

“Steven Spielberg came in, and said, ‘I have a super scary story I want to do,’” Katzenberg said at a film festival event. “He’s writing it himself. He hasn’t (written anything in a while) so getting him to write something is fantastic.”

Spielberg wanted to add an extra layer of horror to After Dark by making it so that viewers could watch an episode only after midnight. Quibi engineers came up with a way to make this happen.

The service will feature a countdown clock that will track both sunset and sunrise in the user’s respective timezone. When the sun rises, the episode will disappear from the Quibi app until the following night……………………………………..”
