"Logan" director James Mangold is in talks to direct a "Star Wars" 'anthology' film based on Boba Fett, according to The Hollywood Reporter.

The Boba Fett film would reportedly follow "Solo: A Star Wars Story" as the next in Lucasfilm's series of films set outside the scope of its ongoing "Saga" movies.

The Greatest 'Star Wars' Villains of All Time

"X-Men: Dark Phoenix" director Simon Kinberg was previously reported to be working on a Boba Fett film, after producing several previous Star Wars films (in addition to X-Men films). It is unclear whether these two purported projects are connected.
