"Kick-Ass" and "X-Men: First Class" director Matthew Vaughn has found his name being bandied about as a potential candidate to helm "Star Wars: Episode VII" at Disney Pictures in recent weeks.
With various other major filmmakers having ruled themselves out, Vaughn has emerged as the most likely candidate to get the gig. Neither the filmmaker or the studio have commented on the talk.
Now, the always fun actor Jason Flemyng may have let slip a confirmation that Vaughn has got the gig.
