    Screen Crush interviewed the director, who brought up Boba Fett for no particular reason in one response to this question: "So, if they came to you now with a Star Wars movie, it's not like you would turn them down." He answered, "I don’t know about the Star Wars spinoffs. I know I'm definitely not going to be doing the Boba Fett movie. I can tell you that for a fact."
