Can he act any better than he could in 2000/1/whenever it was that AOTC was filmed?
To tell you the truth, as far as a Boba Fett feature film is concerned, my strong preference is for a picture set immediately after the events of the Sarlaac in ROTJ. I think seeing Fett fight his way out of the pit, only to discover a whole new galaxy of opportunities for himself has come with the death of Jabba and the crippling defeat for the Empire at Endor, would make for an interesting premise and, rather than sitting through a 2-hour bounty hunt set during his earlier years, I'd much prefer to see Boba take advantage of the changing political climate, post-ROTJ, and become a sort of kingpin of the Coruscant underground and the Outer Rim. As this would probably require an actor older than Daniel Logan, he's not really part of my Boba Fett stand-alone movie equation.
Now, if you want to save Boba's earlier adventures for the Live Action Show, you've got my support there. By all accounts, Daniel seems a nice fella who really seems to have embraced the role and given that (and given as much as I like to see continuity kept intact), I'd certainly be in favor of giving Logan first-look. That said, well, it was once pointed out to me that, other than his voice work on TCW, Logan hasn't had a credited acting role since 2003. This, to me, is a red flag. I'm not saying that I'm actively against the idea, but I do have to wonder why he's been largely out of the acting business for a decade now if he's really got the goods, you know?
Spot on. Odds are that any Fett film will take place soon before or soon after the OT timeframe.. In that scenario, as Logan is too young amd Temura Morrison woukd be too old(53 this year), I'd love to see Daniel Sunjata from Rescue Me and The Dark Knight Rises take over the role of Fett.
There is no chance that Disney would ever approve casting Logan as the lead in a stand alone Fett film, regardless of his association with the character and Lucasfilm. There's simply too much money at stake for that kind of gamble. Plus, those photos smack of a ""Sean Young dressed in Catwoman suit" level of desperation to get a part. Executives at Disney see those, and will immediately pass him over. He may have done himself more harm than good with those shots.
No. He looks like a little boy still and he can't act. Can we get someone without frosted tips?
I don't think Morrison would be too old. How old would Boba be in ROTJ?
According to Wookieepedia, Fett is about two years older than Han Solo. So, unless the Fett film occurs at least 10 years after ROTJ, I think casting a mid-50s Morrison might be a stretch.
You mean he's willing to be the star of his own Star Wars film, play an iconic character & get paid loads of cash? I'm shocked!
Won't happen. They won't be risking a big budget movie on an unknown with little acting experience just for the sole reason of continuity
Get emm Dad foy'er that one line killed any enthusiasm I would have for Logan to reprise the role, and feel that Like Portman and Hayden he should be just filed and forgotten.
For me the bigger problem of making a film out of just a side character and who was nothing than a glorified plot device (to get Han out of the way) is that no matter what they do with him and no matter how multi-faceted they create him, that it could be Citizen Fett in Space, at the end of it, he still goes out like a punk in RTJ.
Cool pics! But Logan looks a little slim to be a kick ass Boba Fett! Although, I guess we could watch him grow into the part, movie to tie-in to the series Underworld.
I actually like this idea as it could help fill some gap between 6 & 7 (without the major characters of course) and would resolve a rather weak death for Fett. I would love to see this happen but I suspect what I wrote above to happen.
Still don't understand Boba's popularity, but if a movie needs to be made, please do not have him escape from the Sarlaac Pit.
and please don't have him in the ST.
Well don't take the helmet off & you could cast anyone you like......
Agreed, but if Citizen Fett is set post-ROTJ, the sarlaac instantly becomes just a blip in the life-story of William Randol... er, Boba Fett, rather than its end (which for fans of Fett's EU story, like me, is already true).
I think Fett's popularity was originally surrounded by his mystery. He looked cool, had a croaky voice and seemed utterly ruthless. In some respects he was a bit like the Jedi. The less you knew, the more myterious and pontentially grand his backstory was. Plus the early EU stories that touched onb the back story of the Mandalorians was equally mysterious.
However, for me, making him a clone completely ruined the character, especially now hearing him speak with a Kiwi accent in Empire. The mystery is no longer there and so now I very much thnk "meh" when I think of Boba Fett. If a new movie is made it'll have to reflect back on the clone element and no doubt Fett will be unmasked for a considerable amount of the movie, since Clones already established what he looks like under the helmet.
Sorry, but count me out,
I'd love to see him escape the Sarlacc, if nothing else just to piss off haters.
But not to have this guy act him, he looks like a lil kid. Have someone with more experience and who actually can come off as intimidating.
a. It's Boba Fett
b. he died in rotj
To be fair those pics are a good few years old and he's looking much more the part now. However I'd still prefer Morrison...but I'd rather we didn't see his face at all so we could get someone in the suit a little more in keeping with his physique and height in Empire
In all honesty no one fits it better than the man himself....
I don't think that appearance of Boba Fett is main priority here. In fact it is far more important to know why and how he became such a formidable bounty hunter. Which I think is the main reason why they might be making a stand alone movie in the first place.
Yeah, it would really be cool if Morrison played Boba Fett.
Boba Fatt felt left out of all the age and weight gain discussion.
Haha, awesome! Funnily enough a similar image popped into my head as I typed my last post.
All of this
I dont want to list all 17 of them.
Mila, you're breaking my heart. You're going down a path a can't follow.
Did you ever see him in Once We Were Warriors? He was an alcoholic abusive violent bastard. He was superb in it. Tested his acting ability slightly more than AOTC did.
