Fox Studios Gets Matthew Vaughn & Mark Millar's Secret Service Movie

Body

6390 Not really a surprise seeing how Secret Service comic book creator, Mark Millar, is the Fox Studios Marvel Comics movie consultant, but it's been announced that the Secret Service movie that has Matthew Vaughn attached to direct will be from Fox Studios.

Deadline announced the news with mention that a tug-of-war was going on between Fox and Universal over the rights to the Secret Service movie.

Fox won.

It's said that Matthew Vaughn has already completed the Secret Service script with Jane Goldman, that a released date will be announced for next year, and that production will begin in August.

Matthew Vaughn was also said to be in contention to direct the new Star Wars episode VII movie, and was said to be the reason for Vaughn leaving X-Men: Days of Future Past, with Bryan Singer coming on board to direct; however, Miller said the real reason was for Secret Service.

Here's a description of the first issue of the comic book:

From The Writer Of Kick-Ass And The Artist Of Watchmen Comes A Collaboration Decades In The Making. Says Millar: “Secret Service Is The Ramifications Of [How] America Is Struggling On The World Stage, Funding Is Being Seriously Undercut To Balance The Books And Some People Are Trying Their Best To Take Advantage Of The Fragile Global Situation. The Hero And Sidekick Guys Who Lead The Book Are, I Think, The Best Characters I’ve Written.”
