Samuel L. Jackson set for The Secret Service

Aug 2 2013, 4:39am CDT | by Bang Movies

Samuel L. Jackson will play the villain in 'The Secret Service'.

'The Avengers' actor has landed a leading role opposite Colin Firth in Matthew Vaughn's latest comic book adaptation, which is based on Mark Millar and David Gibbons' super-spy graphic novel series, according to Variety.

Jackson will play the main antagonist to Firth's expert secret agent and his young rookie protégé, to be played by newcomer Taron Egerton.

Vaughn - who previously directed another Millar comic book adaptation, 'Kick-Ass', as well as 'X-Men: First Class' - has been eyeing a big Hollywood name for the role, and previously offered the part to Tom Cruise and Leonardo DiCaprio.

The plot centres on a British spy who takes a brash young upstart under his wing and teaches him the tricks of the trade.

Vaughn co-wrote the script with his regular collaborator Jane Goldman - who co-wrote 'Stardust' and 'Kick-Ass' with him - and he will produce as well as direct through his Marv Films production company.

Attention now turns to finding the film's leading lady and it's thought producers are keen on 'The Bling Ring' and 'Harry Potter' star Emma Watson, but are also considering 'Dark Shadows' actress Bella Heathcote.

Jackson is currently filming Marvel comic book movie, 'Captain America: The Winter Soldier', reprising his role as S.H.I.E.L.D. leader Nick Fury. He will again play the role in 'The Avengers: Age of Ultron', which will be filmed next year for release in 2015.

'The Secret Service' is due to begin production later this year and will be released in November 2014.

When Joss Whedon's Avengers: Age of Ultron was filming in London last summer, I got to visit the set along with a few other reporters.   Like most Marvel set visits, they let us talk to the entire cast and watch filming.  While the production was guarded about what they were willing to tell us, we learned a ton of cool secrets behind what’s bound to be one of the biggest films of 2015.  In The Avengers sequel, Iron Man (Robert Dow ...

Eddie Murphy & 'Driving Miss Daisy' Director 'Cook' Up New Drama

Oct 20 2014 5:19pm CDT | Source: First Showing

Fans will see Eddie Murphy get back into Axel Foley mode soon enough with Beverly Hills Cop 4 on the way. Plus, there's still that Twins sequel in the works that will team him up with Arnold Schwarzenegger and Danny DeVito in the cleverly titled Triplets. But before he makes a couple more comedies, he's going to take some time to get into drama briefly. In what will be his first non-animated, non-comedy role since the 2006 musical Dreamgirls, Empire reports that Murphy is slated t ...

Eddie Murphy Will Go Serious Again With ‘Cook’

Oct 20 2014 10:45am CDT | Source: slash film

In 2007, Eddie Murphy earned an Oscar nomination for his dramatic turn in Dreamgirls. In the years since then, he’s spent his time getting terrible reviews (Meet Dave, A Thousand Words), voicing a donkey (Shrek the Third, Shrek Forever After), or planning sequels to old hits (Beverly Hills Cop 4, Triplets). But now it looks like he’s ready to get serious again. Murphy is reportedly on board for Cook, directed by Bruce Beresford (Driving Miss Daisy). He’s stepping in for Sam ...

So far, info on the cast for Quentin Tarantino‘s The Hateful Eight has been little more than speculation. While we have a good idea that actors such as Samuel L. Jackson, Kurt Russell, Tim Roth, Michael Madsen, and Walton Goggins will have roles in the film, thanks in part to their participation in the live-read of the script, nothing has been officially revealed. Now for The Hateful Eight Jennifer Jason Leigh is set as the first official cast ...

JK Rowling “Tweaking” ‘Fantastic Beasts And Where To Find Them’ Screenplay

Oct 6 2014 3:00pm CDT | Source: slash film

Every day, conversations in the film community gravitate to how DC, Marvel and Lucasfilm are working on huge, interconnected universes on the big screen. Innumerable other franchises are emulating this blueprint too, whether it be the Universal Monsters or Ghostbusters. But a similar franchise largely kept out of the conversation is Harry Potter. In the next decade, we’re going to get at least three new films in Potter’s universe. The spin-off series, set year ...

Kite Review

Oct 3 2014 1:56pm CDT | Source: ign

Samuel L. Jackson starring in a live-action version of a cult girl-sassin anime may look great on paper and sound awesome as a pitch, but the result here - with Kite (headed to VOD and theaters on October 10th) - is an ugly, boring trudge of a movie. As it turns out, when you redo anime with actual actors you draw express attention to the fact that the story is often obtuse and dull - and is only pal ...
