One of my most anticipated movies is director Matthew Vaughn’s Kingsman: The Secret Service. The story is based on the comic by written by Mark Millar and Dave Gibbons about a veteran secret agent (Colin Firth) who takes a teen delinquent (Taron Egerton) from the streets of London, and brings him into a British spy school that molds its students into suave 007-types. As a huge fan of what Vaughn did with X-Men: First Class and how awesome the first trailer looks, I cannot wait to see the finished film when it opens February 13, 2015. For more on the film, here’s our Comic-Con panel recap and our interview with Colin Firth and Samuel L. Jackson.
Shortly before their panel at Comic-Con, I landed an exclusive video interview with Mark Millar and Dave Gibbons. They talked about working with Vaughn, the way he likes to do action, how Kingsman brings back the fun espionage genre, how comics and film are two separate entities with their own identities, the way they worked together, the limited edition Watchmen comic created for SDCC, future projects like Nemesis, Supercrooks and Kindergarten Heroes at Fox and Starlight which is being developed with Simon Kinberg, and more. Hit the jump to watch.
