    I have very little interest in this, the premise just sounds so dull and cliche, but I have to state my dissapointment in Vaughn taking this as his next project. I mean, really, leaving DOFP for this?

    Thankfully we got Singer back for DOFP but I just feel Vaughn is wasting his talent with a project like this.

    I'm down with Jason Isaacs. He's wonderful, especially in that type of role.

    It's Millar, so who knows. But I'm going to assume, like with all of his films adaptations, the movie will be 110x better than the book.

    Ending is abit flat, it's a good book that focuses alot on the Family.

    Variety has revealed that 20th Century Fox and Matthew Vaughn are considering Jack O'Connell (300: Rise of an Empire), John Boyega (Attack the Block) and Christian Cooke (Magic City) for the lead role of 'Gary' in The Secret Service. While Aaron Taylor-Johnson was initially considered to play the young secret agent mentored by his uncle, scheduling and money issues reportedly led to that not working out. While the studio may still opt to strike a deal with the Kick-Ass 2 and Godzilla star, Vaughn has zeroed in on these three - more may be added to the list - and is now screen testing them.

    This is probably gonna end up as another solid film from Matthew Vaughn. He's very consistent!

    Jack O'Connell I could see doing well in the role.

    Its cool that John Boyega is getting considered as well.

    Neat!

    Still can't believe that this is was a case of Mark Millar being right... about.. well, everything.

    So, is this yet another movie based on a Millar comic that's actually better than the comic. Also. it appears that Hollywood is determined to adapt everything that Mark Millar and Frank Miller have ever written. Next up, a Nemesis movie directed by Quentin Tarantino.
