Matthew Vaughn is currently on the promotional trail for his latest directorial effort, an adaptation of Mark Millar and Dave Gibbons’ Kingsman: The Secret Service.
However, that’s not the only comic book movie on his upcoming slate, with the Kick-Ass and X-Men: First Class helmer also attached to The Fantastic Four in a producing capacity.
Flickering Myth’s Luke Owen caught up with Vaughn today, and asked him for his thoughts on this new take on Marvel’s First Family.
“I’ve seen the movie, it’s good,” Vaughn told us.
“I thought Chronicle was a fantastic movie and [Josh] Trank has gone off and done his version of Fantastic Four. If you like Chronicle, then you’ll like this.”
“We’re all backing Josh Trank’s vision,” he concludes. “And hopefully the world will like Josh Trank’s vision”.
