Since the HUGE news broke that Disney purchased Lucasfilm and plans to bring a new episode of Star Wars to the screen, speculation has run rampant as to what the story will cover, who will direct, who will star, and more.
Please be aware this is definitely still in the rumor stage, but Matthew Vaughn, the guy that brought us X-Men: First Class, Kick-Ass, and Stardust, is in talks to helm Star Wars: Episode VII. This is believed to be the reason he dropped out of directing the next X-Men film that Bryan Singer is now directing. Many were wondering why Vaughn would step away from the X-Men, but being offered a chance to take over the reigns for Star Wars is something that could definitely entice him. Most of all though, if true, is good news for fans. Vaughn has offered up some great movies to geeks thus far and the fact that he is also a writer, we know he can take a concept to the next level.
We'll be bringing more information on this as it becomes available, stay tuned!
As a cute side-note, someone made this 'campaign video' for Brad Bird as director of the next Star Wars movie. I can't say he'd be a horrible choice, but I'm much more interested in Matthew Vaughn myself.

About the Author - Jeremy Shane
Jeremy was born in a small mountain village of a strange foreign land called Weystvurginea. Banishment for liberal views saw him spend years wondering the east coast until he decided to bike to California. When he saw how long a trip it was, he drove instead. Now he's living it up in a low humidity climate, sometimes working on his photography and when not, he writes for us covering books (by way of his blog: Reading Realms), gaming, tv, movies, comics, conventions in the SoCal area, and creates a weekly webcomic: A Journey Through Skyrim. If you look for him offline, start in the L.A. area; online start at: www.jeremyshane.info for his profile and all the social networks he's on... or just follow him on twitter, he seems to be on there a lot: @jeremyshane.
