A few months ago, we announced that Mark Hamill would be joining the cast of Matthew Vaughn‘s next film, The Secret Service. The film is based off the Mark Millar and Dave Gibbons comic of the same name and as the title suggests, follows the life of a veteran secret agent who takes his ruffian nephew from the streets of London, and brings him into a British spy school that molds its students into suave 007-types. Colin Firth has been announced to be taking on the role of the uncle.
I haven’t had a chance to read the comics yet, which I’m almost ashamed of saying, since I’m a pretty huge Millar fan; but the premise sounds pretty great. The comic also has a bunch of celebrity appearances such as, Hamill; but also Ridley Scott. We’ll see what other celebrities just show up in the flick.
