Matthew Vaughn's Secret Service, the comic book movie adaptation of the Mark Millar and David Gibbons graphic novel, has cast Samuel L. Jackson as the main villain.

The  comic book sees a young man who grew up in a rough section in London get recruited by his Uncle into a British spy school that churns out suave, sophisticated gentlemen-agent types in the 007 mold. Together they get involved in a conspiracy that surrounds celebrity murders, with the comic book featuring real life characters Mark Hamill and Ridley Scott.
