Fett was introduced in The Empire Strikes Back and then later seen in Return of the Jedi. His story was further developed in Attack of the Clones, revealing him as a child clone who was raised by Jango Fett. Though a minor role in the series, Fett is regarded as a fan favorite Star Wars character.
Mangold is known for the Oscar nominated Logan, which was up for Best Adapted Screenplay. The film truly showed the humanity in Wolverine and was a beautiful sendoff to the iconic character. If the director can bring that same energy and passion to the Boba Fett film, the Star Wars universe has potential to see a great spinoff revolving around the admired character.
A past rumor stated that Simon Kinberg was working on a Boba Fett script, and it’s unknown whether this project is the same one. Mangold and Kinberg previously worked together on Logan.
