The Boba Fett Star Wars anthology film may have seemed to have died a slow death as soon as director Josh Trank was catapulted from the project, but it sounds like the film has drifted back into development.
According to the outlet Omega Underground, an unknown Star Wars anthology flick is getting developed under the name Tin Can. This was reportedly the same name used for the Boba Fett film a few years back, and using that as their lead, the outlet went on to confirm that yes, Boba Fett is indeed in development under the same name.
Of course, it’s unlikely that Trank will be returning to helm the franchise. As you may recall, the director ended up in “Hollywood jail” following the production of Fantastic Four. Not only did the film end up being a critical and box office dud, but rumors poured out about his terrible behavior on set.
We were able to independently confirm that by the time the cameras started rolling (literally day one), Trank had already been beaten down by the meddling of the studio, and as a result, wasn’t exactly the picture of helpfulness on set. Almost from the get-go, he was checked out. Between that and his public bashing of the studio, it seems clear that we won’t be seeing the man take on a big franchise any time soon — at least not until he proves his worth once again.
That being said, it sounds like Lucasfilm isn’t letting that fact tank their IP, and before we know it, we may be hearing of a Boba Fett film actually hitting theaters.
