Newcomer Taron Egerton In Talks to Join Matthew Vaughns "Secret Service"

Variety is reporting that director Matthew Vaughn might have found his co-star in 'Secret Service', an adaptation of the popular Mark Millar comic series, in finding newcomer Taron Edgerton. The film is being directed by Vaughn with Colin Firth starring as the seasoned secret agent that is tasked with training his nephew (Edgerton).

The film gained some attention when Vaughn passed up doing the sequel to his hit X-Men: First Class to do The Secret Service. That shows he believes in the film and is putting all his mind in it. He did that with Kick-Ass (another adaptation of Millar's work).

Other actors have been eyed for the role including Kick-Ass himself, Aaron Johnson, Jack O'Connell and others. They must see something in this new kid to give him the shot. Now they have the main characters except the female lead and villain.

Sources say Emma Watson and Bella Heathcote are rumored to be in the mix for the female lead, while the studio would like a big actor for the villain. Tom Cruise and Leonardo DiCaprio have turned down the offer. Booo!!

What do you guys think about the new casting choice?
