Colin Firth is in talks to star in Matthew Vaughn's adaptation of the comic "The Secret Service" for 20th Century Fox.
Mark Millar and Dave Gibbons' comic series follows a seasoned Secret Service agent (Firth) who takes a younger agent under his wing as they investigate the murder of every resident of a small town and a mysterious secret involving Mount Everest.
Vaughn co-wrote the screenplay with his "Kick-Ass" and "X-Men First Class" collaborator Jane Goldman and is directing, producing and financing the project via his MARV Films banner.
The film is currently scheduled for a November 14th 2014 release.
