Matthew Vaughn is line to produce and potentially direct 'Courage'.

The 'Kingsman: The Golden Circle' filmmaker is said to be the frontrunner for the sci-fi project from a script by 'Stranger Things' executive producer Karl Gajdusek.

According to Deadline, the drama would be similar to the likes of 'Inception' and 'Edge of Tomorrow' and Vaughn would produce alongside Michael Ellenberg.

Fox bought the untitled project, details of which are being kept under wraps, in June.

Should Vaughn sign up to produce and direct the motion picture, the cast may well be hoping they don't have to film too high up after he gave cast and crew of 'Kingsman: The Golden Circle' altitude sickness while shooting on location for the movie.

The filmmaker recently admitted a mountain top ski gondola sequence caused some problems with many people having to leave the filming.

He said: "The [ski] gondola sequence was hard. We went out in the mountains and a lot of people had altitude sickness, so that was difficult making it with half the crew who couldn't stay up there ...

"We all went to the top of the mountain to shoot it and after about 20 minutes half the crew went back down. I'm lucky I didn't get it, but half the crew was like, 'Oh my God,' and then I got poor Taron and [co-star] Pedro [Pascal] and I'm, saying 'Run now, run left, run there.'

"They're like, 'Dude, we can't breathe, let alone run, and we've got ski boots on!' I'm like, 'Ah, just do it.' But yeah, it was tricky and it was cold, and the weather wasn't great, and then we'd get windows of sunshine and shoot again. But it was beautiful."
