Washington: The feature film centered on Boba Fett, the feared bounty hunter and much-loved character from the ‘Star Wars’ universe, will be written and directed by James Mangold of ‘The Wolverine’ fame.

The news was broken by The Hollywood Reporter on Friday. The news came on the release day of another Star Wars flick, ‘Solo: A Star Wars Story’.

Incidentally, Disney-owned Lucasfilm is currently working on films based on specific characters of the universe, including Obi-Wa Kenobi.
