    http://www.latino-review.com/news/star-wars-is-the-han-solo-movie-also-the-boba-fett-movie

    According to Latino Review that's a distinct possibility. I personally think that having (arguably) the two most popular characters in the Star Wars universe together as possible protagonist and antagonist is a fantastic way to kick off the stand alone films. Of course, the casting of a youngish Han Solo is crucial to the success or failure of the project, but with all of the speculation that there's going to be a Han spin-off of one sort or another, it's seems to me the most likely character to appear. But Han paired with Boba Fett makes my imagination run wild with possibilities! Here's hoping that this is one rumor that actually pans out! What do you think?

    That could work! Although I must say I wonder how much character development they will give to Fett. And the plot will also need to make sense too. There needs to be a reason that's stated or is given in the movie why Han and Boba are working against each other.
    It would be cool to see a personal reason why Fett wants Solo, but I beg that it's reasonable and organic to the story and the rest of the universe.

    But putting two fan favorites together sounds awesome!

    Anthony Ingruber, 'nuff said - after we see his performance as young Harrison in Age of Adaline that is. I dig the idea of having this be a good vs. bad, but I'm not too sure it will happen, since I do believe there was an article somewhere that stated the writers were having trouble making Boba an anti-hero. And I personally want a crim-based excavation of the Death Star plans. I mean, c'mon, Han has a heart of gold :D

    Oh come on, just make him someone like Clint Eastwood! Cold, quiet, sinister, you don't know much about him, and you're not even sure you can trust him. Make the story intriguing and make you second guess who the "good guys" are. It's the underbelly of the universe, you have corrupt people all around, throw in a "grey" character and things get a little interesting. Add in a morally good person into the mix, now you have a neat look where things are at in the Star Wars universe.

    True, but I also think they want to re-canonize The Bounty Hunter Code, so how he could both do bad and good is gonna be dependent on it I suppose.

    I think it would work best if it started out with Han and Boba on the same side working together. Han the smuggler and Boba the bounty Hunter. If it does end up a heist of the Death Star plans, then Fett could set Han up as the fall guy at the end of act 2. You could even have Han save Chewie at some point in the action explaining how Chewie owes him a life debt. I'd love to see where they could take this in a film! Maybe the Death Star plans wouldn't be the right McGuffin for it though since Han is shocked to see it in ANH and he would obviously have to thwart Fett at the end of the film. Something along those lines though.

    This film is going to need a Mcguffin. My guess is what or whomever Solo is smuggling, or whoever Fett is trying to kill/capture. A nice twist would be that Solo is hired by Fett to smuggle him in somewhere, but when Solo learns who the target is he turns on Fett. That's what makes it personal for Fett in ESB.

    I would like to see Boba Fett's pursuit of Han when the confrontation final comes they work together & part on respectable terms for the moment unless a bounty on Han's head becomes known again.

    The funny thing is that this movie should be pretty much developed by now. So it seems rather strange that Disney would change plans from the previous rumors of
    1- Fett and 2- Solo, BUT definitely NOT outside the realm of possibility.

    Now, as for the concept -- I would LOVE a Fett vs Solo film! However, I have two major concerns as follows:

    1- We are hearing rumors that Fett will be ret-conned so as NOT to be Boba Fett. This is actually an old rumor that i believe made the rounds about a year ago. Not sure I want Fett retconned to some random guy who kills Fett and assumes his ID.

    2- Hearing rumors, IE read it somewhere in the forums here, that Solo would be played by Harrison Ford in the stand alone and survives Episode VII. While I kind of like that idea because it could mean that Han re-appears in Episode VIII where he probably dies I'm NOT sure I like the idea of Ford playing Han again outside the saga and then duelling with and almost equally old Boba Fett.

    I'm just not sure. I think exploring Han's backstory is a much better idea save the part about having to re-cast him younger, which could be an EPIC FAIL!

    But all this talk of more Han Solo makes me quite obviously intrigued and excited!

    Lol. That's exactly what I thought when I first read about it. And whether or not they should do it, I can definitely see them going through with it. Michael Fassbender is in my opinion a great actor, and when Disney announced that they were making a ST he was on my personal short list of actors that would potentially fit well in the GFFA. That being said, I've only really thought of him as a Jedi or Sith. As Boba Fett? Meh.

    I like the idea of the real Boba dying in the Sarlaac and a new guy takes his place, acting like he is the real deal. As for Han, I really doubt Ford will have signed on for a Spin-off.

    With this new rumor of the girl being the star of the movie, maybe she is the REAL daughter of Han Solo not Rey/Kira (I'm thinking she is Luke's daughter). So there's your Solo and there's your Fett.

    I would like see these two co-exist for just a little bit.
