Based upon the acclaimed comic book and directed by Matthew Vaughn (Kick Ass, X-Men First Class), Kingsman: The Secret Service tells the story of a super-secret spy organization that recruits an unrefined but promising street kid into the agency’s ultra-competitive training program just as a global threat emerges from a twisted tech genius.

With ‘Star Trek’ and ‘Star Trek Into Darkness’ director J.J. Abrams hard at work on ‘Star Wars: The Force Awakens,’ Paramount Pictures had originally pegged series producer-writer Roberto Orci to make his directorial debut on the tentatively titled ‘Star Trek 3.’ However, with Orci recently departing the directors chair, Paramount Pictures and Abrams are now said to be eyeing
five four directors to replace Orci: Rupert Wyatt (Rise of the Planet of the Apes), Morten Tyldum (The Imitation Game), Daniel Espinosa (Safe House), Duncan Jones (Moon, Warcraft), and Justin Lin (Fast & Furious). (sadly, no Edgar Wright, who had been rumored). UPDATE: Duncan Jones has taken to Twitter to confirm he won’t be directing. “Very flattering being on short list for Star Trek, but won’t be doing it. Absolutely MUST make my own thing next, or I’ll die of old age!”
