The Hollywood Reporter brings us the following news:
Matthew Vaughn, savior of the universe?
Vaughn, basking in the success of his surprise hit Kingsman: The Secret Service, is in negotiations to direct Flash Gordon, a movie based on the classic comic strip character that is set up at Twentieth Century Fox.
The studio picked up the project almost a year ago, with John Davis and King Features producing. Davis spent more than a year acquiring the rights from the Hearst Corporation.The last reboot of the character was in 1980. Bad movie, great soundtrack.
