    The Secret Service (Matthew Vaughn)

    http://www.empireonline.com/news/story.asp?NID=38343

    The premise is that old-school lothario Bond type Jack (Firth) takes his street-smart nephew Gary (Egerton) under his wing to train him in the family business. For their first mission, the pair investigates the mysterious kidnapping of various sci-fi acting legends, including Mark Hamill(wonder if Millar and Vaughn will convince him to crop up?) Jackson, we assume, will be the mastermind behind it
    What the fuck?!

    Anyhow, sounds a bit like the Alex Rider books by English writer Antony Horowitz, down to the goofy premise.

    The comic is pretty bad.
    Quote Quoting Donald Glover
    I was actually just reading about Matt Damon and he’s like, ‘There’s a culture of outrage.’ I’m like, ‘Well, they have a reason to be outraged.’ I think it’s a lot of dudes just being scared. They’re like, ‘What if I did something and I didn’t realize it?’ I’m like, ‘Deal with it.’

    Is this a nerdier version of The Expendables?
