That's not entirely true. Vaughn reportedly co-wrote the script (which Deadline doesn't mention), so that means Goldman had in it as well. And even if they didn't write it, Vaughn oversaw the script development.
I'm sure if Vaughn wasn't contracted for the X-Men: First Class sequel already, he'd be directing this.
