Music leader Taylor Swift landed a big screen role in director Matthew Vaughn’s huge budget spy caper, The Secret Service, alongside David Beckham, reports The Mirror. The cast includes Colin Firth, Samuel L Jackson and Michael Caine.
The movie is described as a 21st Century 007. Adele’s character escapes after being kidnapped by a villain, played by Samuel L. Taylor begins filming at the end of this year with the film due for release in November 2014. A production source said:
‘Filming commences in October and will shoot mainly in London and south of France. Matthew looked at a number of actresses to play the part before settling on Taylor, apparently she was a natural on the big screen.
She’s also someone fresh and unseen in Hollywood terms which was massively appealing. She will be required to have some heavy-duty martial arts training in order that her character convincingly kick Samuel L Jackson’s butt.
It will be Taylor’s biggest challenge to date but she cannot wait. She is also looking forward to working with David Beckham whom she thinks is amazing looking, but taken.’ The Secret Service, based on the Mark Millar comic books, stars Firth and Caine as secret agents battling a variety of villains.
Firth is reported to be playing the uncle of the main character, a young tearaway from the mean streets of London recruited into a British spy school. Taron Egerton has been tipped for the role of the young spy after Aaron Taylor-Johnson turned it down. Are YOU excited to see Taylor’s face on the big screen? Do YOU think she will top Selena?
