After his successful projects like X-Men: First Class and Kick-Ass, Matthew Vaughn is ready for another one and that will be The Secret Service, an adaptation of Mark Millar’s comic book that will be directed by Vaughn.
Fox acquired worldwide rights to The Secret Service project, which Vaughn will begin shooting in August, from a script he wrote with Jane Goldman.
Here’s the Amazon synopsis from the upcoming comic, set to be published this summer:
The world’s greatest secret agent is on the most exciting case of his career. But will the end of the world as know it take a back seat to training his street-punk nephew to be the next James Bond? meanwhile, what’s the secret link between a series of kidnapped sci-fi stars, the murder of an entire town, and a dark secret from inside Mount Everest? Under Uncle Jack’s supervision, Gary’s spy skills and confidence blossom–but when the duo learn what’s behind the celebrity kidnappings, the knowledge comes at a price. The conspiracy begins to unravel, but who can be trusted when so many prominent figures seem to be involved?
20th Century Fox announced it will release Vaughn’s comic book adaptation in theaters Nov. 14, 2014.
