Matthew Vaughn confirmed for Mark Millar’s The Secret Service

Adaptation will arrive in November 2014

Matthew Vaughn’s fruitful relationship with comic-book supremo Mark Millar is set to continue, with the director confirmed to head up an adaptation of Millar’s comic-book The Secret Service.

With Vaughn unable to direct Kick-Ass 2, it looked like there was an overload of potential projects on his plate, and it seems as though The Secret Service was the pick of the bunch.

The comic follows the adventures of a veteran secret agent who takes on a young protégé, and leads him through a crash course in the shadowy world of espionage.

Having worked such wonders on bringing Millar’s Kick-Ass to the big screen, Vaughn has again teamed-up with writing partner Jane Goldman, and a script is already thought to have been completed.

Filming is set to begin in August, ahead of a 2014 release date, with Fox pencilling in an opening weekend for 14 November.

Is Vaughn the right man for the job? Tell us, below!

      Still can't believe Mathew left X-men for this.

      This sounds interesting. If they're looking to cast a look-a-like for the above character, then Jason Isaacs is a dead ringer.

      to Ali1748, he probably left because he thought he had a strong chance to direct Star Wars. But since that didnt work, he went back to this 'posible future' proyect
