Matthew Vaughn’s Star Wars Possibly Confirmed By Kick-Ass Co-Star


By: Sean O’Connell

star_wars_34290Ever since Walt Disney and Lucasfilm announced their partnership, which led to the creation of three new Star Wars films, Matthew Vaughn has been atop a shortlist of potential directors thought to helm the anticipated Episode VII. With each passing week, directors have taken their names out of the race, from J.J. Abrams to Steven Spielberg. But Vaughn has stayed quiet … and even walked away from a high-profile directing gig in X-Men: Days of Future Past. Was this in an effort to free up his schedule so that he could direct the next Star Wars? One actor seems to confirm that with a slip of the tongue.

British thespian Jason Flemyng has worked with Vaughn on multiple films, including X-Men: First Class (where he played Azazel), Kick-Ass andStardust. While attending a red-carpet premiere for Martin McDonagh’s Seven Psychopaths, Flemyng sort of told the gathered reporters that he expects to appear in the upcoming Star Wars because Vaughn will be at the helm. Listen to his “confession,” via Total Film:

The key quote is this, “Me and Matt have done nine films together, so I’m sure I’ll get he call for Star Wars.” Though it is priceless to see the look of awareness on Flemyng’s face when he realizes official confirmation has not been given, and he might have said too much.

Or, if we’re being skeptical about this news, we could say that Flemyng and Vaughn have simply had conversations about how cool it might be to do Star Wars if the director ever got the gig. Truthfully, I’m surprised that a director hasn’t been named yet for the project, which is due in theaters in 2015. Maybe this slip of the tongue will force Disney’s hand?
