There is no shortage of speculation about what will happen with Star Wars in the hands of Disney and who will direct Episode VII is a hot topic. Here is the latest rumor.
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.
