Boba Fett will be the subject of one of the Star Wars spin-off movies, it has been reported.
Star Wars bosses have already announced they will be making a set of standalone films - as well as a new trilogy starting with JJ Abrams' eagerly anticipated Episode VII - and it has now been claimed that one of them will focus on the popular bounty hunter.
Director Jon Schnepp told AMC Movie Talk that he had some information about the spin-offs, saying: "One of them is Boba Fett. It is. I know. I know for a fact."
"I will never reveal my source, but it is the one written by Lawrence Kasdan," he added.
There have also been reports that one of the spin-offs could focus on Han Solo, the character played by Harrison Ford in the original movies.
Star Wars: Episode VII is due to be released in 2015 and the spin-offs will be released within the same time frame as the three main movies planned by Disney.
Meanwhile, Lucasfilm and Marvel have announced they will team up on new Star Wars comics.
According to The Hollywood Reporter's Heat vision blog, they will be unveiled to coincide with the release of Episode VII.
