Star Wars Boba Fett spin-off cancelled

The Star Wars spin-off based around the character of Boba Fett has been cancelled. 

According to journalist Erick Weber and later confirmed by Entertainment Weekly, producer Kathleen Kennedy has confirmed that the spin-off is not going ahead. 

James Mangold, director of the Wolverine trilogy, was due to direct and was expected to work with X-Men key man Simon Kinberg on the script. 

Fett is a feared bounty hunter who featured in both The Empire Strikes Back and Return of the Jedi as a minion employed by both Darth Vader and Jabba the Hutt. 

A spin-off has long been talked about but has never come to fruition. 

The latest Star Wars spin-off, Solo - A Star Wars Story is out now and available to purchase from hmv’s online store.
