An earlier rumor surfaced that Matthew Vaughn was a contender to direct the new Star Wars Episode VII movie slated for 2015 with it said that Vaughn departed X-Men: Days of Future Past for Star Wars.

Well, it turned out that wasn't the case as Mark Millar said that Matthew Vaughn actually left X-Men because of Secret Service, which they wanted to get underway rather quickly due to copycat scripts floating around Hollywood.

Well, just because Vaughn left because of Secret Service doesn't necessarily mean Vaughn will not be or has not been picked for Star Wars.

Now, Millar has taken to his official site to offer support for Matthew Vaughn as the director for Star Wars.

...Vaughn departed X-Men because our Secret Service project was being copied by a few scripts doing the round and we didn't want anyone to beat us out there with our own idea. Star Wars has since, of course, announced an Episode 7 and he's been touted as a possible director for that movie. All I can say is that if he DOES get picked to helm the next Star Wars there would be nobody with more passion or enthusiasm for the project. I really don't think there could be a better choice, especially as we've referenced Star Wars pretty much every day in the 5 years we've known one another.
