UPDATED: Matthew Vaughn Courting Studio for Jonathan Ross’ The Golden Age


UPDATED: On Twitter, Tommy Lee Edwards has confirmed the rumour that Vaughan is looking to adapt Jonathan Ross’ unpublished script for The Golden Age comic, and has revealed that when the comic is eventually published, he will be the artist, carrying on his creative partnership with Ross from their Turf Comic.

Deadline.com is reporting that a major Hollywood studio is interesting in funding Matthew Vaughn‘s next big project: The Golden Age. The movie will purportedly be based on an as yet to be published comic book series by Jonathan Ross, which is said to be about about a retirement home for superheroes. The title of course has the double meaning of being about both the Golden Age of life, and the Golden Age of comics, being the period when the classic superhero comics were first published.

Deadline reports that Vaughn, who is currently in LA editing X-Men: First Class, wants to get actors attached to the new project before the script is written. His wish list includes Clint Eastwood, Jack Nicholson, and Warren Beatty, to play the retired superheroes who help out their grandchildren when their middle-aged parents screw up the world.

There is no word yet as to whether Vaughan will be joined by Jane Goldman, with whom he co-wrote Stardust, X-Men: First Class, and Kick-Ass, but considering that she is the wife of Jonathan Ross, we can probably expect that she will be involved in some capacity. However, Vaughn says he may hire other writers for the project, and he may not direct it himself either
