‘X-Men: First Class’ director Matthew Vaughn will helm ‘Flash Gordon’ movie
Matthew Vaughn has set himself apart as a director of movies that are epic and thrilling and also silly and fun. He did that with “X-Men: First Class,” “Kick-Ass,” “Stardust,” and, most recently, with “Kingsman: The Secret Service,” and now he’ll also — hopefully — do that with a big screen adaptation of “Flash Gordon.”
Twentieth Century Fox is developing the movie based on the beloved comic strip adventurer.
“Star Trek 3” scribes J.D. Payne and Patrick McKay wrote the script for the project. — Emily Rome
