Matthew Vaughn's next film has been announced.

Deadline reports that the X-Men: First Class director will helm an adaptation of Mark Millar's comic The Secret Service, which will be distributed by 20th Century Fox.

Vaughn and writing partner Jane Goldman adapted the script, which centres on a veteran secret agent who introduces a young protégé to the business.

Millar's comic Kick-Ass was adapted by Goldman and Vaughn in 2010, and both Millar and Vaughn are producers on the upcoming sequel.

Vaughn dropped out of directing First Class sequel X-Men: Days of Future Past last year, with Bryan Singer returning in his place.

He was also rumoured to be a frontrunner for Star Wars: Episode VII before Jj Abrams was confirmed.

The Secret Service is set for release in November 2014.
