One of the best action movies of the last few years is Netflix’s Extraction starring Chris Hemsworth. The film was directed by Sam Hargrave and produced by the Russo Brothers AGBO production company, and has a sequel in the works. Hargrave will now take that talent to Lucasfilm.
According to The Ronin, Hargrave has directed at least one episode of the upcoming Disney+ Star Wars series, The Book of Boba Fett. The site also says he may have been second unit director for the other episodes as well. Hargrave was second unit director on The Mandalorian.
Also directing The Book of Boba Fett are Robert Rodriguez, Peyton Reed, Jon Favreau, Dave Filoni, and Bryce Dallas Howard, all returning from directing duties on The Mandalorian.
According to our friend Jordan Maison over at Cinelinx, Din Djarin might be making an appearance in The Book of Boba Fett. Other characters from The Mandalorian are also expected to appear. There also rumors that various fan-favorite Bounty Hunters in the Star Wars universe could also show up including Bossk, Dengar, and Cad Bane. Despite nearing the end of filming, there has been very little officially announced about this show.
The Book of Boba Fett will be set within the timeline of The Mandalorian and star Morrison as the titular bounty hunter, along with Wen as Fennec Shand. Robert Rodriguez, who directed Chapter 14 of The Mandalorian, a thrilling installment that reintroduced Boba Fett to the Star Wars galaxy, will also produce alongside Favreau and Filoni.
