Secret Service

jackson

Matthew Vaughn’s Secret Service is an upcoming comic book adaptation that boasts a good deal of pedigree already. Not only is it going to star Colin Firth, who is one of the best performers ever to sign on to lead a movie based on a comic, but it’s also got a whole host of other people who have seen great success in the comic book world bringing it to life, pretty much from top to bottom. Vaughn, of course, already earned quite a bit of praise for reviving the beleaguered X-Men Franchise with X-Men: First Class. Michael Caine, who was one of the prominent players in Christopher Nolan’s Dark Knight franchise, is said to be on board to play the head of the agency that Firth’s character works for. Mark Millar, the guy who wrote the comic the film is going to be based on, is already known for being the creator of Kick-Ass. And, heck, even the artist who worked on Millar’s book and has likely inspired many of the visuals of this new project, Dave Gibbons, is already a comic book legend because he’s the man who drew “Watchmen.” What else could be done to make this movie look like any more of a sure thing? How about adding the Director of S.H.I.E.L.D. into the mix?
