Matthew Vaughn In Talks With LucasFilm To Direct STAR WARS EPISODE VII?

Collider is reporting what they are claiming is a rumor but have a source that says Matthew Vaughn (Layer Cake, Stardust, X-Men Fist Class, Kick-Ass) could direct Star Wars Episode VII. They state that Vaughn is currently in talks with LucasFilm to direct the first installment in the new trilogy. Apparently, it's the real reason he exited X-Men Days of Future Past as it's director. Nothing is official here but considering Matthew is also a writer he could really be the visionary the franchise needs. It should be noted he was included on that directors-list from MarketSaw.

Her name isn't mentioned with this rumor but when you hire Matthew Vaughn, screenwriter Jane Goldman get's involved. Goldman has been working closely with Vaughn since Stardust and has also written scripts for Kick-Ass, The Secret Service, Woman In Black, X-Men First Class and X-Men Days of Future Past. It would make a lot sense to see Goldman adding her own touches to the franchise if Vaughn is hired.
