Matthew Vaughn to Direct "Flash Gordon" Remake

Posted: April 17th, 2015 by WorstPreviews.com Staff
Matthew Vaughn to Direct "Flash Gordon" RemakeSubmit Comment
After directing such hits as "Kingsman: The Secret Service," "X-Men: First Class" and "Kick-Ass," director Matthew Vaughn is now negotiating to direct his next movie, a remake of "Flash Gordon."

The character was created in 1934 by iconic artist Alex Raymond. Along with the lovely Dale Arden and mad scientist Hans Zasrkov, he ends up on the planet Mongo fighting its tyrannical ruler, Ming the Merciless.

Vaughn's film will not be based on the 1980 movie, which is best known for its Queen soundtrack, inspiring George Lucas to make "Star Wars," and more recently, being constantly referenced in "Ted." Instead, the film will be based on the classic "Flash Gordon" comic strip.

Back in 2009, Sam Worthington (Avatar) was attached to star in the movie, which was set to be directed by Breck Eisner (The Crazies).

Seriously, didn't we get enough of this faggy character with Ted and the upcoming Ted 2?

It'll probably bomb like John carter and d*ck tracy.

So a film released in 1980 inspired George Lucas to make a film that was released in 1977... I knew if anyone was to invent time travel it would be George Lucas.

Lucas began writing the script to Star Wars after completing American Graffiti. He based the plot outline on the 1936 Flash Gordon serials and the 1958 Akira Kurosawa film The Hidden Fortress.

Alex is a retard.

I say give Sam Jones the old Brian Blessed role ... God knows after the Ted films, he'll need the work.

By the way, whoever writes for the Hollywood Reporter needs to stop reading Wikipedia and pissing away an article - Lucas was inspired by Kurosawa's The Hidden Fortress, you dipsh*t.

@Max

The Flash Gordon film series were also an influence on Star Wars, not only The Hidden Fortress. Lucas talks about this in the excellent Empire of Dreams doc*mentary about the films.
