Matthew Vaughn accidentally confirmed as “Star Wars: Episode VII” director?

Actor Jason Flemyng might have accidentally let slip one of the biggest Hollywood secrets around. During a recent interview, which you can watch below, he seemingly revealed that Matthew Vaughn will be directing “Star Wars: Episode VII.”

Flemyng was speaking with HeyUGuys when the outlet asked him if he thinks he’ll get asked by Vaughn to star in the new “Star Wars” movie. Vaughn has only been rumored for the part, but Flemyng answered, “Me and Matt have done nine films together, so I’m sure I’ll get the call for ‘Star Wars.’”

It was only after he answered and the reporter asked a follow-up question about Vaughn’s involvement that Flemyng seemed to realize his mistake. He stammered a response and seemed to shrug it off, but let’s just say we won’t be too surprised if Vaughn ends up being announced as director of this film.

Meanwhile, Mark Hamill has elaborated on his own involvement with the forthcoming movie. He’s already said he’s known for over a year that “Star Wars: Episode VII” was on its way, but it hasn’t been announced (only rumored) that he’ll reprise his role as Luke Skywalker.

“We have questions about it,” Hamill told E! Online about the movie, speaking for both himself and Fisher. “And really, they’re not even at the stage where they’re able to answer those questions because, as far as I know, is there a story yet? I loved all those people, I really did. Until I know more about what they have in mind, I think it’s better to let LucasFilm make the announcements.”

Hamill was then asked what he’d think of another actor taking over the role of Luke Skywalker. Surprisingly enough, he didn’t seem too put out by the idea.

“If they were going to do a story where Luke was too young or too old for me to play, they would get an age appropriate actor,” Hamill said. “There’s so many good people.”

Your Portlandia Personality Test

The New Portlandia Webseries Is Going Your Way

Posted by on

Carrie and Fred understand that although we have so much in common, we’re each so beautifully unique and different. To help us navigate those differences, Portlandia has found an easy and honest way to embrace our special selves in the form of a progressive new traffic system: a specific lane for every kind of driver. It’s all in honor of the show’s 8th and final season, and it’s all presented by Subaru.

Ready to find out who you really are? Match your personality to a lane and hop on the expressway to self-understanding.

Lane 10: Trucks Piled With Junk

Your junk is falling out of your trunk. Shake a tail light, people — this lane is for you.

Lane 33: Twins

You’re like a Gemini, but waaaay more pedestrian. Maybe you and a friend just wear the same outfits a lot. Who cares, it’s just twinning enough to make you feel special.

Lane 27: Broken Windows

Bad luck follows you around and everyone knows it. Your proverbial seat is always damp from proverbial rain. Is this the universe telling you to swallow your pride? Yes.

Lane 69: Filthy Cars

You’re all about convenience. Getting your car washed while you drive is a no-brainer.

Lane 43: Newly Divorced Singles

It’s been a while since you’ve driven alone, and you don’t know the rules of the road anymore. What’s too fast? What’s too slow? Are you sending the right signals? Don’t worry, the breakdown lane is nearby if you need it.

Still can’t find a lane to match your personality? Check out all the videos here. And see the final season of Portlandia this spring on IFC.
