Notable Director Joins ‘Star Wars: Book of Boba Fett’ Production


The Book of Boba Fett premieres on Disney+ in December. This week we learned that Sam Hargrave, who directed the 2020 Chris Hemsworth movie Extraction and served as the second unit director and stunt coordinator on a number of high profile action movies, including Avengers: EndgameDeadpool, and Suicide Squad, is reportedly working on The Book of Boba Fett for Disney+.


Hargrave, who is also a stunt performer and actor, is in pre-production on his second directorial feature, Combat Control, but that seemingly hasn’t stopped him following up on his second unit work on The Mandalorian with a role on its spinoff. The series, which picks up from the end of The Mandalorian‘s second season, will star Temuera Morrison (Aquaman, the Star Wars prequels) and Ming-Na Wen (Marvel’s Agents of SHIELDMulan).


Directors for the series reportedly include The Mandalorian veterans Jon Favreau, Bryce Dallas Howard, Robert Rodriguez, and Dave Filoni. That lineup will also reportedly include at least one episode from Hargrave, who may continue to serve as a second unit director on other people’s episodes.
