Kingsman: The Secret Service is earning quite a bit of praise leading up to its release this coming weekend. The movie is jam-packed with non-stop action, the kind you might want to see in a new Indiana Jones movie. Luckily for all of us hardcore fans, director Matthew Vaughn is actually interested in taking on a reboot for Disney.
Matthew Vaughn, who won over Marvel fans with his take on X-Men: First Class, recently spoke to ComicBook.com about his love for all things LucasFilm, and it sounds like he even wants to take on one of the upcoming FRgAKNrSBIT2km|Star Wars movies. Before J.J. Abrams was officially announced as the director of Star Wars: The Force Awakens, Matthew Vaughn's name was mentioned more than once for the job. The director first starts talking about Kingsman creator and longtime collaborator Mark Millar before segueing into his hopes for a future job:
"Mark and I fell in love with movies at the same time. We're the same age so we both saw Star Wars, Superman, Indiana Jones, you know? Raider of the Lost Ark. And then in the 80s we were watching the same videos three or four times a day. We grew up in that style of filmmaking and what we're doing is recreating that in a modern manner."
All of the 80s movies that he mentions are currently experiencing a rebirth on the big screen, and he definitely wants to be a part of that. Mark Millar explains:
"If someone offered me Star Wars or Indiana Jones I would be very interested. When you're the director, you just don't know. Something clicks and you go, 'Yup, I wanna go make that story,' so never say, 'never,' to anything but right now I'm in the world of Kingsman so it's really hard to think about anything else."
It's been reported in recent weeks that Disney wants their Guardians of the Galaxy star Chris Pratt to take over for Harrison Ford in Indiana Jones 5. No formal offer has been made to the actor just yet, and the news has been neither confirmed nor denied by Disney and LucasFilm. Though, if Chris Pratt and Matthew Vaughn were to team up for a reboot, I don't think too many fans would complain. But come on, they'll certainly complain about something!
