Second 'Star Wars Anthology' Film Rumored to Feature Both Han Solo <em>and</em> Boba Fett

Forget who shot first. When it comes to feuding forces in the "Star Wars" Universe, look no further than Han Solo and Boba Fett. Their rivalry is legendary but hasn't been fully explored -- unless the second "Star Wars" anthology film has anything to say about it.

Rumors about the focus of the 2018 film -- originally set to be directed by Josh Trank ("Chronicle," "Fantastic Four") -- have been circulating for quite some time now, with the most prevalent being a focus on either the galaxy's most dangerous bounty hunter Boba Fett or swashbuckling smuggler Han Solo. However, a new rumor from Schmoes Knows pegs both fan-favorite characters as the focus of the film.

Similar to how the upcoming "Star Wars Anthology: Rogue One" takes place between films from the original trilogy, rumor has it the upcoming second film will take place between "Star Wars: Episode III -- Revenge of the Sith" and "Star Wars: Episode IV -- A New Hope" and finally explore the long-standing conflict between Fett and Solo. Chewbacca, Lando Calrissian and Bossk are also rumored to play key roles in the film.

The yet-untitled second "Star Wars Anthology" doesn't have a director attached since Trank's recent departure; however, word has it that both Jon Favreau and Matthew Vaughn are circling the highly anticipated project.
