About Matthew Vaughn
English film producer and director,Matthew Vaughn has an estimated net worth of $25 million.
The producer-director-writer Matthew Vaughn initially made his mark as the man behind the scenes on films directed by friend Guy Ritchie only to eclipse that reputation when he assumed the director’s chair for projects of his own. His collaboration with Ritchie began on the breakout U.K. independent hit “Lock, Stock & Two Smoking Barrels” (1999), followed by the similarly themed criminal caper “Snatch” (2001). Less successful was the change of tack the cinematic duo took with the reviled theatrical bomb “Swept Away” (2002), a romantic comedy starring Ritchie’s wife, pop superstar, Madonna. Not to be outdone, Vaughn also landed a prize bride when he wed supermodel Claudia Schiffer in 2002. Taking the reigns on his next effort, Vaughn made his directorial debut with the crime thriller “Layer Cake” (2004), a film that shared similarities with Ritchie’s earlier works, although with a decidedly more serious tone. After the movie became a surprise hit, offers poured in and the newly minted director took on the fantasy adventure “Stardust” (2007). Although the film was not quite the hoped for box office bonanza, Vaughn returned triumphant when he helmed “Kick-Ass” (2010), a violent superhero movie that performed well with genre fans. He stuck with the capes and tights crowd, moving on to the prequel “X-Men: First Class” (2011) as director and co-writer. Inarguably ambitious, Vaughn’s experience as a producer and his demonstrated skill behind the camera made him one of the more formidable young Turks in early 21st century film.
Matthew Vaughn was born in Beverly Hills, CA on March 7, 1971 to actress Kathy Ceaton. For years, he was led to believe that his father was actor Robert Vaughn, star of the espionage series “The Man from U.N.C.L.E.” (NBC, 1964-68). The assertion, which Robert Vaughn had always denied, was proven false decades later through legally binding paternity tests, at which time Ceaton admitted that Matthew’s father was actually George De Vere Drummond, an English aristocrat. As an adult, Vaughn later adopt the name Matthew De Vere Drummond for business purposes.Raised in the U.K. from an early age,Vaughn was educated at Stowe School in Buckingham, England.
