Matthew Vaughn Set For STAR WARS: EPISODE VII?
Matthew Vaughn just might be set for Star Wars: Episode 7 based on responses from actor Jason Flemyng who happens to be a frequent collaborator of Vaughn's. "Me and [Matthew Vaughn] have done nine films together so I'm sure I'll get the call for Star Wars."
Flemyng (Layer Cake, X-Men: First Class) and Vaughn (Kick-Ass, X-Men: First Class ) are very close friends, so much so that Vaughn has put Flemyng in EVERY film that he's ever directed. So when Flemyng was fielding questions at the UK premiere for Seven Psychopaths the discussion naturally turned to Star Wars and if he's talked with Vaughn about the project.
"Me and [Matthew Vaughn] have done nine films together so I'm sure I'll get the call for Star Wars. But I'm sure it's going to be 'Flemyng, no...I know on paper it doesn't look like much but I promise you it's essential to the part.' So we'll see what happens with that."(sic)
After realizing that he just potentially spilled the beans, Flemyng had an 'interesting' look on his face to say the least. Still, until we receive official confirmation, take this as a rumor for now....but it would certainly explain Vaughn's relatively last-minute decision to drop out of X-Men: Days of Future Past. [Flemyng also confirmed his return as Azazel by the way.]
