Jon Favreau Says No to Directing Any ‘Star Wars’ Movies

Jon Favreau Says No to Directing Any ‘Star Wars’ Movies

It's easy to see why Jon Favreau may have been considered. He kick-started the Marvel Cinematic Universe by directing the first Iron Man movie in 2008, and the sequel Iron Man 2 in 2010. He also has a great relationship with Disney, and is currently putting the finishing touches on the live action adaptation of their The Jungle Book movie for next spring. Though, he doesn't currently have anything lined up next. Matthew Vaughn, on the other hand, is extremely busy. He's currently writing Kingsman 2, the sequel to this year's extremely successful Kingsman: The Secret Service. He's also mulling over whether or not he will once again direct. He is also planning Hit-Girl as a prequel movie and Kick-Ass 3 at the same time. Though, he doesn't have his next directing gig completely locked down. Will he eventually direct Star Wars Anthology: Boba Fett Movie? We'll have to wait and see.

Not directing any SW eps. Just a fan. RT @MrBazingaa: Hopefully something related to Star Wars is next. *cough second anthology film cough*— Jon Favreau (@Jon_Favreau) June 20, 2015

@chasadavis Not involved with any SW films. Can't wait to see them, though.— Jon Favreau (@Jon_Favreau) June 20, 2015

‘Star Wars’ Anthology Movie Wants ‘Iron Man’ or ‘Kingsman’ Director?

‘Star Wars’ Anthology Movie Wants ‘Iron Man’ or ‘Kingsman’ Director?

With Star Wars: The Force Awakens in post-production and filming starting later this year on the first Star Wars spinoff Star Wars Anthology: Rogue One, Disney and LucasFilm are currently prepping their second anthology movie. The project is currently without a director, after Josh Trank (Fantastic Four) stepped away last month, but we haven't heard anything about his potential replacement yet. Today we have a new, unconfirmed report that both Jon Favreau and Matthew Vaughn are circling the Star Wars Anthology: Boba Fett Movie.

We have reported in the past that this spinoff will give fans an origin story to the legendary bounty hunter Boba Fett, which was never confirmed, but this new unconfirmed report also reveals that both Boba Fett and Han Solo will be the main focus of this story. If this new rumor is accurate, the plot will show fans the longtime conflict that was only hinted at during the original Star Wars trilogy. The rumor also reveals that the story will include characters such as Chewbacca, Lando Calrissian and Bossk. The story is said to take place between Star Wars: Episode III - Revenge of the Sith and Star Wars: Episode IV - A New Hope.

‘Fantastic Four’ Reshoots Directed by Matthew Vaughn, 3D Plans Scrapped?

‘Fantastic Four’ Reshoots Directed by Matthew Vaughn, 3D Plans Scrapped?

Is Josh Trank's career in Hollywood about to tank? As you may know, he was recently removed as director on the upcoming Star Wars Anthology: Boba Fett Movie. It was said he got the boot after he displayed some very disturbing behavior on the set of Fantastic Four. While we know that 20th Century Fox demanded reshoots on their superhero reboot, it was also stated that Josh Trank was directing these new scenes. But that may not be the case. A new report claims that Matthew Vaughn, director of Kingsman: The Secret Service and X-Men: First Class, actually had to step in and take over.

The news comes from Superhero News, who are revered as a quite reliable source. They claim that Matthew Vaughn was asked to step in and director the Fantastic Four reshoots we heard about this past April to ensure the movie fits inline with the studio's X-Men franchise. It had previously been reported that the director was present during these reshoots, but this is the first we're hearing that he actually took control of the ship.

‘Hit-Girl’ Prequel May Happen Before ‘Kick-Ass 3’

‘Hit-Girl’ Prequel May Happen Before ‘Kick-Ass 3’

When last she spoke about her fan-favorite Kick-Ass character Hit-Girl, star of the franchise Chloe Moretz claimed that Kick-Ass 3 was dead, blaming the sequel's demise on piracy. Now, director of the original Matthew Vaughn is singing a different tune. Not only does he think there will be a Kick-Ass 3, but he believes it should be proceeded by a Hit-Girl prequel movie.

Sure, Chloe Moretz has stated that she is pretty much done with the young vigilante Mindy McCready. But speaking with JoBlo, Matthew Vaughn (who is currently promoting his latest film as a director, Kingsman: The Secret Service) believes he can convince the young actress to come back and once again don the iconic purple mini-skirt."Do you know what's going to be next if I do it... we've finished plotting it. What we have to do is, we've got to do the First Class to the Kick-Ass world. We lost a few fans on Kick-Ass 2. It wasn't as loved as one would've hoped. So we have this idea for a Hit-Girl prequel. It's a really strong, really simple prequel where I think we can regain the love and the passion. If that happens, I'm pretty sure I can persuade Aaron and Chloe to come back and finish the story of Kick-Ass with Kick-Ass 3".
