Fox Lands Mark Millar's 'Secret Service' for Director Matthew Vaughn

Secret Service

Back in the fall of 2011, there were rumblings that X-Men: First Class and Kick-Ass director Matthew Vaughn was looking at Mark Millar's yet-to-be-published comic book The Secret Service for a film adaptation. With the comic poised for release in July, Deadline reports Fox has just landed the rights to the film with Vaughn still attached to the story which follows a veteran secret service agent training his punk nephew for the same job in the midst of celebrity kidnappings, the murder of an entire town and some sort of secret involving Mount Everest. That sounds like a lot, and we're not really sure if all that will make it in.

Sounds like you're typical sort of buddy cop sort of flick with a family dynamic, but with Millar behind the comic, there's no telling what other tricks he has up his sleeve. It's no surprise that Fox was eager to nab the rights since they're having Millar consult on all their Marvel projects. It also helps that Vaughn was already attached to direct since Fox is already pleased with his launch of the X-Men: First Class series of films, even if he did end up leaving X-Men: Days of Future Past for Bryan Singer to take over. Now we'll have to see who lands the lead role. Stay tuned.

Cool and all, but I still wish he'd do X-Men.

Mark Millar. 3x as many projects as Del Toro with 1/1000 the talent.
