Jeremy Irons to take the lead role in new Star Wars film: Boba Fett.
“This is very exciting. Jeremy has been researching the character and we decided to go the root we used on Logan. Boba is an old man.

“I know. The script is right up there.”
Others involved in the new film include Scarlett Johansson and Viola Davis. Boba Fett is also rumored to be appearing in the new live action television series that is currently filming, though it is believed Jeremy Irons will not be playing him for television. Irons told us:
