Matthew Vaughn Wants To See Old People In Tights

Wednesday, February 16 by

Matthew Vaughn is apparently fed up with working with little kids in Kick-Ass and teenagers in X-Men: First Class so now he wants to do a super-hero movie about old people. He wants his next project to be The Golden Age, about elderly super-heroes in a retirement home. Cool, it’s like Bubba Ho-Tep but with super-heroes instead of Elvis, JFK, and an ancient mummy. Upgrade? But Vaughn isn’t skimping on ambition when it comes to his vision for the film:

“His wish list is Clint Eastwood, Jack Nicholson, and Warren Beatty to play the retired superheroes who help out their grandchildren when their middle-aged parent screw up the world.”

Right. I’d be incredibly surprised if he got 1 of those 3 names (and it would have to be Nicholson), but there’s now way in the universe he’ll get all 3. Aim a little lower, Matt – How do Mickey Rooney, Dick Van Dyke, and “The Macho Man” Randy Savage sound? (via Deadline)
