Colin Firth Is Dressed To Kill In New SECRET SERVICE Stills
The Secret Service is an upcoming spy film directed by Matthew Vaughn ("X-Men: First Class"), based on a comic created by Mark Millar and Dave Gibbons. Hit the jump to see some new images that include Colin Firth, Samuel L. Jackson and newcomer Taron Egerton.
Colin Firth, aka your mother's daydream, is making his first venture into action with Matthew Vaughn's next comic book movie, The Secret Service
. The story is based on the comic book that was created by Mark Millar and Dave Gibbons. This will be the second film that Vaughn has adapted from Millarworld. The first being of course, Kick-Ass.
This will also be Vaughn's third comic book movie, as you know he helmed that last X-Men
film, First Class
chatted with Firth about the upcoming film. During the discussion he mentioned the strenous workouts he endured to look the part. Which is crucial if you want audiences to believe Mr. Darcy can kick butt as good as James Bond. Playing a more physical role than what Firth is accustomed to brought with it some aches and pains.
Oh yeah, I’d be ashamed to tell you I hadn’t. We were ludicrously proud of our bruises, however small. The first bruise I got, which basically changed the color of my arm, was photographed and everyone said, “That’s going to have to go on the DVD or some website, just to prove that you did this.” And I broke a tooth. I think one of the reasons why Matthew wanted me to do so much of it myself was because of the improbability in people’s minds. You feel anyone can have a scene where you cut to a stunt guy, but because no one expects me to do this, he really wanted to sell the idea that it was me doing it.
