"Kick-Ass" Director to Helm "X-Men: First Class"?

"Kick-Ass" Director to Helm "X-Men: First Class"?Submit Comment
A few days ago we reported that 20th Century Fox were in negotiations with "Kick-Ass" director Matthew Vaughn to helm their "X-Men: First Class" movie. Since Vaughn previously rejected the offer to direct "X-Men: The Last Stand," it wasn't much of surprise that Vaughn turned down "First Class" as well.

Fox immediately went to the person on the list that contains such names as Samuel Bayer (A Nightmare on Elm Street), Timur Bekmambetov (Wanted), Daniel Espinosa, David Slade (30 Days of Night) and Carl Erick Rinsch.

The studio was able to interview several helmers, but had to cancel the rest because Vaughn once again became interested in the project. Deadline is reporting that Fox is currently working with his agent to close the deal.

I really hope he sticks to his words about Hollywood dying and that he'd rather do Indy films while people still look up to him for having balls for saying that

I respect him for saying that about Hollywood to johnny_boy but still... i do want him to helm it and try and revive the x-man franchise? Loved Kick-Ass...

@ Ted.... I really do think he has the chops to revive the franchise. If he did take it, it wouldn't be a disappointment. Guess only in a perfect world would someone stick to his principles. But as long as he's a huge x men fan, then I'm in

Ok this is bullsh*t, because Matthew Vaugh has already turned it down.

Some others sources have confirmed this like MovieWeb and a few other sites, this news is about 3 to 4 days old

Why not give it so Sam Bayer?

He's f*cked up one franchise. Let him ruin another. (Although Ratner did a stand up job of ruining it already)

This another one of those on/off stories like Anchorman 2 and Zoolander 2 i guess .... Tomorrow it will be he's turned it down again...

I read on another site that he's already been chosen to direct. Smartest move by Fox in a while, if it's true.

Please don't do this Mr. Vaughn, do Kick-Ass 2 and get away from Hollywood as far as possible.
