Fox Sets Matthew Vaughn's 'The Secret Service' for 2014

The Secret Service

Remember that movie Matthew Vaughn left X-Men: Days of Future Past for called The Secret Service? It's coming out next year on November 14, according to Deadline.

The Secret Service is based on a comic series by Mark Millar and Dave Gibbons that tells the story of a British spy who is training his nephew in the craft.

Vaughn was to direct this movie after Days of Future Past, but when he learned that similar movies are in the works, he had to movie fast. Here's what happened in Millar's own words.

"We thought Matthew was going to do X-Men first, but we found out there were actually a few imitators of Secret Service in the works....There are three other projects I know of now about a James Bond kind of guy taking a street kid and turning him into a spy. Three screenplays were already going through Hollywood about this! So Matthew and I said, 'Fuck this. We're not letting anyone steal our ideas."

Production is set for later this year in August, and Vaughn is directing from a script he wrote with Jane Goldman.
