Leonardo DiCaprio To Play A Villain In Matthew Vaughn's THE SECRET SERVICE?
ContactMusic is reporting a rumor that Leonardo DiCaprio is currently being eyed by director Matthew Vaughn for a villainous role The Secret Service. The spy film based on the Mark Millar comic book focuses on a secret agent (Oscar winner Colin Firth) who helps train his young street hooligan nephew to become a spy like his uncle. Leo recently took on the villain role in Quentin Tarantino's Django Unchained which was a change of pace. No word on who would play the young street punk but Aaron Johnson had passed on the part. Production will begin soon with a November 2014 release date being penned-in. This would be DiCaprio's first fray into the comic book genre after being linked for a role in The Dark Knight Rises.
