PROFILE: Director Matthew Vaughn on his fantasy epic ‘Stardust’


The last time Hype! spoke to producer/director Matthew Vaughn, it was two years ago and he was inNew York City promoting his directorial debut, the Brit crime drama Layer Cake, which was playing at the Tribeca Film Festival. At the time, he had just been signed up to direct the third "X-Men" movie, but he also told us that he planned on tackling Neil Gaiman and Charles Vess' fantasy novel Stardust sometime in the future.  

As these things happen, Vaughn ended up bailing on X-Men: The Last Stand--when we spoke with Neil Gaiman in San Diego, he told us that the script just wasn't there--but it probably was a good thing, because it allowed Vaughn to avoid the possibility of a sophomore slump while giving him a chance to show he's every bit as capable of directing a big fantasy epic as some of his peers with a movie that's every bit as wondrous as "The Chronicles of Narnia" or "The Lord of the Rings" in terms of scope and storytelling.
