Obviously we all know J.J. Abrams is directing “Star Wars Episode VII”. But what happened to Matthew Vaughn? That was the rumors as to why he left “X-Men: Days of Future Past”. Turns out there was some truth to that. According to reports, Disney and Lucasfilm offered the gig to Steven Spielberg and J.J. Abrams. But then offered it to Matthew Vaugh who, in his pitch, had Chloe Moretz playing the lead. It’s unclear why that deal never got made, but we do know it broke down for some reason and Abrams got the job.

Not gonna lie, I kind of wish I could have seen that version now.
