“Wanted” comic creator Mark Millar won’t confirm or deny the involvement of acclaimed British filmmaker Matthew Vaughn (“Stardust,” “Layer Cake”) on the proposed film adaptation of his comic “Kick-Ass”.
Millar tells Newsarama that “I can’t confirm or deny any director at this stage. Sure, Matthew and I are friends and I think Layer Cake and Stardust tie with 28 Days Later as the best British films of this decade so having him onboard would be amazing.
But at this stage I can’t even give you a little wink, except to say that the director is already in place and we’re looking to rapidly go into production once we’re finished a polish on the final script next month. Some casting has already been worked out too, but I can say nothing beyond this annoyingly vague statement.”
Vaughn remains attached to direct “Thor” for Marvel Studios.
