Fresh off the news that Kick-Ass helmer Matthew Vaughn will bring X-Men : First Class to theaters on June 3rd, 2011, we end up having more exciting news. This strangely came when British funnyman Jonathan Ross tweeted
“G;night all. The wife is away writing X Men 4 so I am off to bed with little Sweeney alone. He will keep my feet warm and my spirits high.”
You of course should know that he is in fact married to Jane Goldman; co-writer of Kick-Ass and also Stardust. It’s clear that she has a pretty strong working relationship with Matthew Vaughn and this gives me more hope for the movie. It seemed like Vaughn was forced to take on a project at the last minute and rush it to theaters without any real care for quality; but this shows that they’re still putting effort into making this film work. While Kick-Ass had some major tonal problems with the screenplay, Goldman and Vaughn still have a knack for creating exciting setpieces and outrageous characters.
Are you excited about X-Men : First Class being a definite Matthew Vaughn movie?
