Director Matthew Vaughn has been trafficking almost exclusively in comic book adaptations over the past few years, establishing franchises with 2010's "Kick-Ass" and last year's "X-Men: First Class." While Fox has Vaughn returning to direct the 'First Class' sequel, he'll still be involved in producing "Kick-Ass 2," and has optioned the rights to a couple of 'Kick-Ass' co-creator Mark Millar's other comic book properties, namely "The Secret Service" and "Superior." But it looks like Vaughn has aspirations outside of the comic book milieu, purchasing the rights to the upcoming novel "Lexicon" from author Max Barry with his own money.
