EXCLUSIVE: The Kingsmen helmer Matthew Vaughn is circling to produce and potentially direct Courage, an action sci-fi script by Stranger Things Exec producer Karl Gajdusek, whose logline is being kept under wraps. It’s an epic premise, a drama in the vein of Inception and Edge of Tomorrow. Vaughn and his Marv Films banner will produce it with Michael Ellenberg, the former HBO drama vet who hatched his own Media Res producing shingle and became attached as producer when Fox bought the untitled project in June, as Deadline revealed exclusively. Matt Reilly is shepherding the project for the studio.

WME and Brillstein Entertainment Partners rep Vaughn.
