Matthew Vaughn

Meet Channing Tatum in ‘Kingsman: The Golden Circle’ Clip
Given the fact that the first Kingsman movie was a spot-on homage to James Bond movies, you’d think we’d all be excited for more of the same. More debonair spy sequences, more dangerous undercover double-speak, and more gunfights in famous locations. Instead, 20th Century Fox has flipped the script, giving us a sequel that promises a delightful sendup of American action movies as well. What would happen if James Bond and John Rambo were forced to join forces to solve an international mystery? If the early trailers and credits are any indication, we’re about to find out.
Matthew Vaughn Might Direct ‘Man of Steel 2’
Back in March it was reported that Warner Bros. was eyeing Kingsman director Matthew Vaughn to helm the sequel to Zack Snyder’s Man of Steel. Although not officially confirmed, Vaughn seemed like a good, sensible choice; the director who (along with screenwriter Jane Goldman) revitalized the X-Men franchise with First Class could probably steer Henry Cavill’s Superman in the right direction. And that might be the case, as Vaughn says he has indeed had talks with Warner Bros. about helming Man of Steel 2.
‘Kingsman: The Golden Circle’ Gets Its Own Signature Whiskey
Great news for fans of gleefully over-the-top spy thrillers and irresistibly delicious brown spirits: Statesman, the official ‘Kingsman: The Golden Circle’ whiskey is now available. Named after the front company for the American spy agency featured in the film, the 95-proof bourbon is made by Old Forester. Splendid!
‘Kingsman: The Golden Circle’ Suits Up for Comic-Con
You may not be ready for Comic-Con, but the cast of Kingsman: The Golden Circle is all dressed up and ready to head to San Diego. The highly-anticipated sequel will hold court in Hall H this week, and 20th Century Fox has officially revealed which stars will be participating in the panel via a new series of very bespoke character posters. Spoiler: Pretty much everyone you want to see will be there — yes, even Jeff Bridges.
Sam Raimi and Marc Webb Passed on Directing ‘The Flash’
Following yesterday’s reports that Robert Zemeckis and Kingsman’s Matthew Vaughn are at the top of WB’s list of possible directors for the Scarlet Speedster’s solo movie comes another big newsflash for fans of The Flash (sorry): While Zemeckis is still heavily rumored to be the frontrunner, a new report reveals that two notable directors have already passed, and Billy Crudup is no longer attached to play the role of Barry Allen’s father.
Zemeckis and Vaughn Are the Frontrunners for ‘The Flash’
Almost as many people have tried to direct a movie version of The Flash as have worn the costume in the comics and called themselves the Fastest Man Alive. About a decade ago, an early version of the film was in development with directors like Shawn Levy and David Dobkin. Later, Seth Grahame-Smith came aboard, only to leave the film over “creative differences.” Then Dope filmmaker Rick Famuyiwa joined the team, only to depart as well last fall over similar concerns over the direction of the film. It’s a tough directing assignment to be sure, joining a cinematic universe in progress (and sometimes rocky progress, at that), and having to measure up with (and also be markedly different from) a very popular television that is currently on the air.
Matthew Vaughn Already Has a ‘Big Idea’ for ‘Kingsman 3’
There are several reasons to be excited for Kingsman: The Golden Circle (mostly every name on the cast list), not the least of which is that it’s the first time that Matthew Vaughn has returned to direct a sequel to one of his own films. After disappointing follow-ups to X-Men: First Class and Kick-Ass, Vaughn’s involvement in The Golden Circle has us feeling far more optimistic about Eggsy’s next mission. And it looks as though Vaughn is feeling pretty good about it, too, because he’s already cooked up an idea for a third Kingsman movie.
