Kingsman The Secret Service

After the success of Kick-Ass, director Matthew Vaughn and Mark Millar are teaming up again for another action-packed comic book movie.

Like pretty much every handsome British actor of a certain age, Colin Firth has occasionally been rumored for the James Bond role. And while he never did get to play 007, he does finally get an opportunity to play a 007-type in Matthew Vaughn‘s upcoming Kingsman: The Secret Service.

Formerly just titled The Secret Service, the Mark Millar adaptation centers around a British intelligence agent (Firth) who grooms his street-smart nephew (Taron Egerton) to join him in the trade. Also starring are Michael Caine as the head of the spy organization, and Samuel L. Jackson as the villain. The first Kingsman: The Secret Service poster and images have just hit the web, and you can check them out after the jump.
