El Mayimbe of the website, Latino-Review, has a new scoop, this time his sources have informed him that prestigious actor, Colin Firth, has landed the coveted role of Uncle Jack in Matthew Vaughn's The Secret Service.

"Anyway, according to sources, Oscar winner Colin Firth has bagged the role of Uncle Jack in the upcoming film. That?s a really hot casting choice. Uncle Jack is quite the alpha male in the comic so it will be a cool to see someone like Colin Firth put foot to ass. Can?t wait."

- El Mayimbe

Production of the film is expected to begin sometime in August. The film is slated to open in theaters nationwide, November 14th, 2014!

UPDATE! It appears that the website, rogersmovienation.com, actually has a quote from Colin Firth confirming that he has a part in the film. That article was posted just a few days ago, but clearly went unnoticed.

But he?s never done a Hollywood comic book movie, and he lets on that he?s about to worth with Matthew Vaughn (?Kick Ass?). Vaughn is doing the comic book adaptation of ?The Secret Service.? It?s about a secret agent of iconic, James Bond status, and the young ?street punk? nephew he mentors in the spy game.

?Too early to talk about now, but it?ll be unlike anything I?ve done,? Firth teases.

Leonardo DiCaprio is rumoured to be in talks for The Secret Service.

The Great Gatsby star is in line to join Colin Firth in the adaptation of Mark Millar and Dave Gibbon's comic book series, according to The Sun.

DiCaprio would play the chief villain opposite Firth's secret agent.

Frequent Millar collaborator Matthew Vaughn will direct the movie. He worked on the adaptation of Millar and John Romita Jr's Kick-Ass and is serving as producer on its sequel.

DiCaprio can currently be seen in Baz Luhrmann's The Great Gatsby adaptation. He will next star in The Wolf of Wall Street.

20th Century Fox's The Secret Service is scheduled for release in the US on November 14, 2014. A UK date is yet to be announced.

With an impressive cast which already includes Colin Firth and Michael Caine, the latest addition to the cast of the Matthew Vaughn helmed The Secret Service is no stranger to comic book movies. While Leonardo DiCaprio and Tom Cruise passed on the role, it is Samuel L. Jackson who will now play the lead villain in the adaptation of the Mark Millar and Dave Gibbons series. Unknown Taron Egerton recently signed up to play 'Gary', while the hunt is now on for the female lead. It is still believed that Vaughn is considering Emma Watson and Dark Shadows' Bella Heathcote.
