Bleeding Cool is reporting that actor Aaron Johnson as the nephew may not be working out, but Colin Firth may be in as the uncle, for Millar and Gibbons' The Secret Service. Co-writer Mathew Vaughan had hoped to cast the two men in the roles, but The Hollywood Reporter has said negotiations aren't working out with Johnson.
A great casting choice for the role, hopefully they manage to fill the role of the nephew just as well, if Johnson doens't work out. In other casting news, it also looks like Mark Hamill will play himself in the movie, as he was in the comic as himself at one point. If you haven't checked out the Secret Service comic, you should pick up the trade that should be collected soon, but for now, here is the description from Mark Millar himself, then with the more official blurb to follow:
This is James Bond meets My Fair Lady.
The world’s greatest secret agent is on the most exciting case of his career. But will the end of the world as know it take a back seat to training his street-punk nephew to be the next James Bond?
