WHOOPS!!! During a UK screening for SEVEN PSYCHOPATHS, actor Jason Flemyng (X-MEN FIRST CLASS) was chatting up a few members of the press. After being asked about his role in X-MEN : DAYS OF FUTURE PAST, Flemyng was asked about friend and director Matthew Vaughn, without realizing (or not caring) Flemyng confirmed that Vaughn is directing STAR WARS EPISODE 7. The actor also said he will most likely get a small part in the film.
Take it for what is is, and check out his reaction as Flemyng realizes the news is not yet official. He begins to back track from the comments but if you listen to him he sounds almost certain Vaughn has already gotten the gig. Flemyng has worked with Vaughn on 9 films, and all 4 of Vaughn’s directed movies, which makes the actor as good a source as anyone to reveal the rumor’s too be true.
If you are uninterested in what the actor has to say about X-MEN director Bryan Singer and his role in the FIRST CLASS sequel fast forward to around 1:10 in the video below. The video is courtesy of the blog for heyuguys.co.uk.
