“Flash Gordon” Film Eyes Director Matthew Vaughn

Matthew Vaughn, whose past work includes “Kingsman: The Secret Service,” “X-Men: First Class” and “Kick-Ass,” is in talks to helm another film based on a classic comic strip character: “Flash Gordon.” Vaughn is currently in negotiations with 20th Century Fox to direct the film, reports The Hollywood Reporter.

The comic strip, created by Alex Raymond in 1934, follows the adventures of Flash Gordon, Dale Arden and the mad scientist Hans Zasrkov, who find themselves transported to the planet Mongo. There, Gordon fights Ming the Merciless, who rules the planet with an iron fist. The character has already spawned several on-screen adaptions, including three Buster Crabbe serials and the 1980 movie that boasts a soundtrack from Queen.

John Davis, George Nolfi and King Features will produce the film. J.D. Payne and Patrick McKay have penned the script, working off a treatment by Nolfi.
