Matthew Vaughn Considers Fox’s “Ascension”

20th Century Fox has acquired Shannon Triplett spec script “Ascension” and is setting it up as a potential Matthew Vaughn directorial vehicle.

The sci-fi action epic follows a scientist who must save the world after gravity is erased from the Earth’s atmosphere. Triplett previously worked as an associate producer on the recent “Godzilla” reboot.

Vaughn (“X-Men: First Class,” “Kingsman: The Secret Service”) would also produce and develop the project should a deal go forward.
