Matthew Vaughn Slated to Direct Thor Film

Recommended Posts

Thor's mystic hammer Mjolnir manipulates ferocious winds, boisterous bolts and pelting rain. And Marvel Studios has decided to grant mighty Mjolnir to Matthew Vaughn, red-hot director of "Stardust" and "Layer Cake."


After nearly linking up for X-MEN: THE LAST STAND, Marvel and Vaughn have struck a powerful accord to bring Thor and his expansive mythos to the big screen. As a director, Vaughn's films have been incredibly well-received. Both the gritty, underworld-flavored favorite "Layer Cake" and his latest effort "Stardust" have been praised by critics and fans alike. After seeing his latest effort, Premiere Magazine described the director by saying, "he can shift so smoothly between goofy and gruesome that you don't feel a thing that he doesn't want you to." His talent for meshing action, grit, fantasy and comedy is sure to play well with the God of Thunder.


Don't think that his résumé only includes these two movies, though. With producer credits for Guy Ritchie's opuses "Lock, Stock and Two Smoking Barrels" and "Snatch," "Thor" is guaranteed to be a unique look at Lord Odin's favorite son. Onboard the Viking ship is writer Mark Protosevich, late of "Poseidon" and "The Cell." Story details are still under lock and key at the moment, but expect a fresh—yet faithful—approach to Thor's story.
