According to El Mayimbe of Latino Review, director Matthew Vaughn and co-writer Jane Goldman have completed their script to The Secret Service and have cast Oscar winner Colin Firth in the lead role of super spy, Uncle Jack.

The Secret Service comic co-created by Mark Millar and Mathew Vaughn and drawn by Dave Gibbons, is a six-issue miniseries that follows super-spy Jack London, who takes his working-class nephew Gary under his tutelage to train in espionage and covert-ops.

Firth is an amazing actor, and I think it’s so cool that he’s taking on a role like this. It’s awesome that comic movies have been attracting top talent. Production of the film is expected to begin sometime in August. The film is slated to open in theaters nationwide, November 14th, 2014!

What do you think about Firth taking on a role of super spy?
