Matthew Vaughn is determined to direct comic book movies, it seems. His next film will be The Secret Service, an adaptation of a comic written by Mark Miller and drawn by Dave Gibbons. I've never heard of it, and the little synopsis on Deadline isn't very helpful: "The drama closely follows the comic, about a veteran secret agent who leads a young protege into the shadowy business."
That could be anything, though it is likely this will host tons of foul language and gratuitous violence, so it will probably be an R-rated anything. My brief research into the project confirms at least one bottle broken over someone's face. That's worth a ticket all by itself.
Whatever it is, there must be something pretty exciting about the project for Vaughn to skip X-Men: Days of Future Past (his passing on that project is probably more complicated than that, but he's owned the rights to The Secret Service for a long time now). Vaughn has been working on this far back enough that he and writing partner Jane Goldman have reportedly already completed the script. So he's a fan.
Fox just won the distribution rights and really wants this one to get going fast. Filming is set for August with a hopeful 2014 release date. In the meantime, let's all review/spoil/condemn the comic in the comments.
