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.

EW 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.

THE SECRET SERVICE - From the writer of Kick-Ass and the artist of Watchmen comes a collaboration decades in the making! The world's greatest secret agent is on the most exciting case of his career. But will the end of the world as know it take a back seat to training his street-punk nephew to be the next James Bond? meanwhile, what's the secret link between a series of kidnapped sci-fi stars, the murder of an entire town, and a dark secret from inside Mount Everest? Under Uncle Jack's supervision, Gary's spy skills and confidence blossom--but when the duo learn what's behind the celebrity kidnappings, the knowledge comes at a price. The conspiracy begins to unravel, but who can be trusted when so many prominent figures seem to be involved? It's a must-be-seen-to-be-believed action spectacle!

Great comic. I hope the movie delivers.

I'm actually excited for this movie even though I haven't read the comic.

Never read the comic but I'd see this.

Looks good, might be entertaining.

Huh, this actually looks pretty good. Yah,I haven't read the comic either.

I do love spy films and the fact it's based on a comic, that just makes it even better.

You know, the story of this reminds me of this point-and-click computer game in the mid 90's called Teen Agent:



The way the character's dressed in the game sort of looks similar to the character in the movie too.

Any news from that "upcoming" Guy Ritchie movie with Cavill starring it???

Looks pretty cool, I only read a little of the comic but I liked the idea of a hooligan teen getting recruited into the old-school secret service, and it looks like they are hitting that nail on the head. I just hope the teen isn't too annoying, if he talks like he thinks he is a "gangsta" I will not watch it, I put up with the couple of white characters like that in Attack the Block, but a whole movie where one is the main character, no thanks.

ye feel me?

@DrunkenNukem, is that The Man from UNCLE? they are probably waiting for the bad taste of The Lone Ranger to fade away, since it is co-starring Armie Hammer, release date is set for Jan 15th so it is in dumping season.
The Man from U.N.C.L.E. (2015)
