    Joe Johnston, director of films such as The Rocketeer, Jurassic Park III and Captain America: The First Avenger is talking about a Boba Fett spin-off on the big screen. Johnston started out making props for the Empire Strikes Back, like the Imperial Walkers and even the Boba Fett costume itself, which is why he has such an interest probably in this project. The only question that remains is if Lucas agrees. Personally I hope he doesn't, though at first thought I think he won't because he said no more Star Wars movies would be made, but this isn't exactly the same, this is a spin-off which would be more on par concerning canon, with projects such as the games, possibly maybe the The Clone Wars animated series.

    Although I'm usually pretty sceptical when it comes to spin-offs (or sequels or prequels :D) this really sounds like an interesting idea. I just hope that if a Boba Fett film is really made they won't screw it up. That would be a shame. A film about Boba Fett turning out to be trashy or plain bad would be a severe sacrilege! :D

    I doubt Lucas would go forward with it. He said there would be no more movies. But if it's a friend's request then he might agree. It depends on the script. If he sees its good and good enough to make it into a film then he'll agree. But he'll only be executive producer. I don't think he would write it. For a project like this he would leave it in the hands of another, just like the games and the animated show, even though he has had his share of influence on the show, which makes it worth to watch imo. This... It depends... If my faith in Joe Johnston was bigger. If Spielberg was interested in making it I would be all for it. And I think we can count John Williams out, which is a pity.

    Boba Fett was one of my super-favorite characters in Star Wars,but since the day where I saw his origins in 2nd movie of the first trilogy and...the fact that the clones were made by his ...well "father"...and also saw that he was that darn ugly...well screw it.

    I never wanted to know how Boba Fett looks like.I pictured him as a handsome,strong non-cloned human

    I don't think he's ugly. And hey, he's a warrior, there's no need for him to be handsome! :D

    lol my thoughts exactly. A friend of mine was bothered at how he was meant to look, but that's cause she fancied Boba Fett from the originals lol I still think he's cool, regardless of looks.

    Handsome? That's actually something they complain about with the new Conan, (Jason Momoa). He's too good looking to play a Barbarian, a warrior. Personally I can see what they're coming from, but you got to attract the audience a bit, so I get why they made that move. But with Boba Fett, that's something else. His face is actual his true mask... Not the helmet he wears. That is what defines his look. And it's cool...

    Oh you could still have him playing a younger Jango I guess (as well as a younger Boba), considering they kinda have the same skin colour and such:p

    Dont...you know he will!! :p

    I have to agree that it was a shame to see the face behind the mask, but it was a part of the storyline!!
    A Boba Fett movie would possibly end up the same as the Conan spin off "Red Sonja" (but with less lady flesh!!).
    Guess the good news is that GL probably won't be involved (if he sanctions it)!!


    j/k :p

    Yeah don't be surprised if they replaced Billy Dee Williams as a clone too, cause that is why Princess Leia originally didn't trust him... Because he's a clone. Wouldn't surprise me if they added that in the new version on Blu-Ray. No kidding.

    Or they should replace all the clones with Billy Dee Williams! Hell, the poor Separatists wouldn't have stood a chance against those winning smiles :p

    Boba Fett may look cool and all that but honestly what has he done to deserve a spin off ? Any spin off should be on two clueless Tusken Raiders called 'Dude,Where's My Bantha?' .
