Matthew Vaughn talks James Bond influences and director jobs
Director Matthew Vaughn, whose much-anticipated "X-Men: First Class" has already scored glowing reviews, has talked to a number of blogs today about his past, present and future work.
When asked by HitFlix
about his visual choices for the film, Vaughn replied, "There were two main influences I had. First, I watched all the early James Bond movies again. 'You Only Live Twice,' I watched a couple of times. I really wanted it to feel like a '60s Bond film, but with a little bit of reality it could be grounded in. I wanted there to be just a hint of this world of the mutants coming through. A mutant in this world having powers needed to be the equivalent of you or I sneezing, as normal as possible, at least until the humans start seeing it for the first time."
Speaking to BleedingCool
, the "Kick Ass" director talked more about Bond. "I always wanted to do a Cold War movie and I'm desperate to do a Bond film, always have been, and here I got to have my cake and eat it. I got to do an X-Men film and a Bond thing Frankenheimer sort of political thriller at the same time."
"I sort of want the Brocolli's to regret never hiring me. I was very keen to direct Bond. I don't know if I am any more, to be blunt, now that I've done this. I really love Daniel [Craig], though you know, it might be interesting if they one day decide to cast Fassbender as Bond, then maybe I'll go 'Hey!'"
