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.

Moreso than anything he’s ever done, the new Quentin Tarantino film The Hateful Eight is being assembled in public. There was the very early script leak, the live-read of that first draft featuring actors such as Kurt Russell, Samuel L. Jackson, and Walton Goggins, and the out-in-the-open back and forth over whether or not the script would actually become a film. Now we know The Hateful Eight shoot date: the project will ro ...

THE HATEFUL EIGHT Will Shoot Entirely in Colorado Starting on December 8th

Sep 26 2014 4:54pm CDT | Source: Collider

I have resisted the temptation to read the script for The Hateful Eight and have even avoided the recaps of the live staging that was held of the piece a few months ago in Los Angeles.  So it's encouraging that we're getting this new Quentin Tarantino movie a lot earlier than we thought we might.  We're now learning that the film will shoot outside of Telluride, Colorado and that everything - interiors and exteriors alike - ...
