We know for a fact that Disney has been looking for a director to take on Star Wars Episode VII, there's been a small list of directors revealed, and it looks like one of those directors might actually be in talks with the studio to bring the next Star Wars film to the big screen!
A rumor comes from Collider who has a trusted source that says Kick-Ass and X-Men: First Class director Matthew Vaughn is currently in talks with Lucasfilm and Disney to take on Episode VII. As speculated earlier, this could be the main reason why he dropped out of X-Men: Days of Future Past. It would make sense that Vaughn would jump out of that film project so abruptly. Hell, wouldn't you if you were offered the keys to the Star Wars universe?
Other directors rumored to be up for the movie include Steven Spielberg, Neil Blomkamp, Alfonso Cuaron, Darren Aronofsky and Joss Whedon. I would actually love to see Vaughn take on Star Wars, I have no doubt he would do an incredible job bringing it to life. The one think that makes me question this news is that I thought he was supposed to do The Secret Service next.
I really hope this rumor turns out to be true, because that would be pretty amazing! What do you think about the possibility of Vaughn directing Star Wars Episode VII?
