Matthew Vaughn to Direct Marvel's Thor

Thor will be making his big screen debut next year, and Matthew Vaughn will be making it happen. The director of Stardust and Layer Cake will be bringing the Norse god to life in a live action movie.

Hopes are that production will begin before the strike that is set to take place next summer. Marvel Studios is said to be using a $500 million credit facility through Merrill Lynch in order to fund the film.

A release date could be as soon as fall of 2008.
