Several months ago we all began speculating on what Matthew Vaughn’s next project would be. Many of us, myself included, thought it would be Star Wars Episode VII. The Wrap is reporting that the director of Kick-Ass and Stardust is now the producer of the new Fantastic Four movie.
“Matthew Vaughn, writer and director of Kick-Ass and X-Men: First Class, will produce The Fantastic Four, Fox's upcoming reboot of the comic book-based film franchise, a studio spokesperson told TheWrap”.
Vaughn will only produce the film at this stage. He has yet to land his next directorial job. Vaughn has a great history with both Fox and Marvel as he directed X-Men First Class and is producing its sequel with Bryan Singer (X-Men) directing.
