Tom Vaughan to Direct ‘Tom Jones’

Production planned for the first quarter of 2014

Tom Vaughan has signed on to direct CrossDay Prods.’ “Tom Jones” — 50 years after Tony Richardson’s adaptation of Henry Fielding’s novel won the best picture Oscar.

CrossDay’s Janette Day is producing and the writing partnership of Matthew Faulk and Mark Skeet (“Vanity Fair”) is adapting Fielding’s novel, first published in 1749 as “The History of Tom Jones, a Foundling.”

CrossDay is planning to begin shooting on location in the U.K. in the first quarter of 2014.

“‘Tom Jones’ is a timeless, classic romantic comedy,” Day said. “It is exciting to be bringing his amorous, heartwarming adventures to a new generation.”

“Tom Jones” tells the story of an abandoned child brought up by a kind squire. He grows into a honest, kind-hearted and lust-filled youth who falls in love with his neighbor’s daughter and battles the hypocrisy of the class structure of the age.

Richardson’s film starred Albert Finney and won a directing Oscar along with Oscars for original score and adapted screenplay.

CrossDay’s “Summer in February” starring Dominic Cooper, Dan Stevens and Emily Browning, will be released June 14 in the U.K. by Metrodome.

Vaughn’s credits include “What Happens in Vegas” and “Starter for Ten.”
