Kingsman: The Secret Service Sequel in Development

SuperHeroHype

Apr 29, 2015

Image

TheWrap brings word today that 20th Century Fox is developing a sequel to the Matthew Vaughn-directed film Kingsman: The Secret Service. No official announcement has been made about the film, but with Vaughn set to direct the reboot of Flash Gordon, it’s possible he may not return to helm the sequel. Vaughn is credited as a co-plotter in the original comic book series, which ironically has yet to publish a second volume.

Based upon the 2012 Icon Comics miniseries by Dave Gibbons and Mark Millar, 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.

The film stars Academy Award winners Colin Firth and Michael Caine alongside Academy Award nominee Samuel L. Jackson, Mark Strong and newcomers Taron Egerton, Sofia Boutella and Sophie Cookson.

Scripted by Vaughn and Jane Goldman, Kingsman: The Secret Service has grossed over $401 million at the global box office. The film will debut on Digital HD on May 15 and later on Blu-ray and DVD on June 9.

Matthew Vaughn Confirms Kingsman Sequel, May Direct It Himself

SuperHeroHype

Jun 11, 2015

Despite not being a recognized IP or having any bankable stars to speak of, Kingsman: The Secret Service became a surprise box office hit this year, grossing over $400 million worldwide. Back in April, a rumor hit that 20th Century Fox was developing a sequel, and now co-writer/director Matthew Vaughn has confirmed to Yahoo! that is indeed the case.

“Well, the good news is that I’m writing it next door at the moment,” Vaughn said. “If I think I can get the script good enough, then we are making it. We are doing our damndest to make that happen.”

In addition to a new American agent character making his way into the Kingsman fold, Kingsman: The Secret Service 2 might also include another surprising element: Vaughn himself behind the camera again, despite having never directed a sequel to his own films before.

“I’m in love with these characters and I want to work with them again so I’ll probably be breaking the rule of me tending not to make sequels,” Vaughn admits.

The filmmaker currently has his hands full on the planet Mongo crafting a big screen remake of Flash Gordon for Fox, but as fans know, Vaughn is a fickle filmmaker who doesn’t stay long on projects that he’s not fully passionate about, dropping out of Thor, X-Men: The Last Stand and X-Men: Days of Future Past (as well as Star Wars: The Force Awakens if rumors are to be believed). Until cameras are rolling, there’s no telling what Vaughn’s next directorial effort might be.

Based upon the 2012 Icon Comics miniseries by Dave Gibbons and Mark Millar, 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.

The film stars Academy Award winners Colin Firth and Michael Caine alongside Academy Award nominee Samuel L. Jackson, Mark Strong and newcomers Taron Egerton, Sofia Boutella and Sophie Cookson.

Scripted by Vaughn and Jane Goldman, Kingsman: The Secret Service is now available on Blu-ray and DVD.

Julianne Moore in Talks for Kingsman 2 Villain Role

SuperHeroHype

Feb 17, 2016

According to Heat Vision, Oscar winner Julianne Moore (Still Alice, The Hunger Games: Mockingjay) is circling the lead villain role in 20th Century Fox’s Kingsman 2, the sequel to Matthew Vaughn’s adaptation of the Mark Millar/Dave Gibbons graphic novel Kingsman: The Secret Service that became a surprise hit, grossing $128 million domestically and another $286 million overseas for a worldwide total of $414.4 million.

Moore is currently set to co-star in frequent collaborator Todd Haynes’ new picture Wonderstruck, as well as co-starring with Matt Damon and Josh Brolin in director George Clooney’s Suburbicon. Right now she and Fox are trying to work out the scheduling issues, but if it cannot be resolved, they may have to look for another actress.

Matthew Vaughn is confirmed to direct Kingsman 2, the first sequel he’s ever personally helmed, with Taron Egerton (Eddie the Eagle) returning to his star-making role as Gary ‘Eggsy’ Unwin, who is now fully-trained secret agent. While the first film took place primarily in England, the new one is said to focus more on the USA and the American branch of the title covert Secret Service agency. Colin Firth is not expected to return in either a flashback or as a new character, although the possibility of him playing his own twin brother was bandied about before being abandoned.

20th Century Fox has set a June 16, 2017 release date for Kingsman: The Secret Service 2.

SuperHeroHype

Academy Award winner Halle Berry is in talks to join the cast of 20th Century Fox‘s upcoming Kingsman: The Secret Service sequel. The original film, a followup to Matthew Vaughn’s adaptation of the Mark Millar and Dave Gibbons comic book, became a surprise hit, grossing $128 million domestically and another $286 million overseas for a worldwide total of $414.4 million. According to Deadline, Halle Berry would play the head of the CIA in what is said to be a two picture deal. The news comes on the heels of last month’s update that said Julianne Moore is in talks to play the film’s villain.

Halle Berry, who took home her Oscar for her work in 2002’s Monster’s Ball, last appeared on the big screen in X-Men: Days of Future Past. On television, she recently finished her two-season run leading CBS‘ science fiction series, Extant.

Kingsman 2 Title and Concept Art Revealed!

SuperHeroHype

Mar 28, 2016

In the latest issue of Empire magazine (via CBM), writer-director Matthew Vaugh revealed that the Kingsman 2 title will be Kingsman: The Golden Circle. Vaughn went on to confirm that the film will see Taron Egerton’s Eggsy and Mark Strong’s Merlin heading to the United States, where they’ll find an American verison of their own organization, lead by a “swaggering, sharpshooting cowboy.”

“I didn’t know if I wanted to direct this or not,” Vaughn said of the film. “I was worried about the villain. Spy films are only as good as their villains. Then one morning I woke up with the whole storyline in place, and a new villain plot.”

When asked if he would try to outdo the “church seqeunce” from the first film in the sequel, Vaughn said:

“You try not to read what people want, but they do want another church sequence. I have no reason for another massacre to happen. But I have other sequences you’ve never seen before.”

You can check out the first concept art for Kingsman: The Golden Circle in the gallery below, including first looks at the US Kingman’s (The Statesman) headquarters and the base of the film’s villain (played by Julianne Moore), Poppyland.

20th Century Fox has set a June 16, 2017 release date for Kingsman: The Golden Circle. Casting updates on the sequel so far have suggested that we will see Halle Berry join the franchise as the head of the CIA, with Julianne Moore in talks to play the film’s central villain. Edward Holcroft is also set to appear in the film, though whether he will reprise as his character from the first remains to be seen.

Sir Elton John in Talks to Join Kingsman: The Golden Circle

SuperHeroHype

Apr 12, 2016

You may have checked the calendar just now, but this is no April Fools’ joke. The Hollywood Reporter brings word that musician Sir Elton John is in talks for a role in the upcoming Kingsman: The Golden Circle. Who he might play, be it a character or himself, remains to be seen.

A six time Grammy Award winner, Elton John has also won the Academy Award and Golden Globe Best Original Song for The Lion King‘s “Can You Feel The Love Tonight” along with the Tony for Best Original Score for Aida. John’s acting credits are few and far between, most of which are appearances as himself, including The Simpsons and Spice World, though he did appear as The Pinball Wizard in Tommy.

Should John’s deal close, he’ll join a cast that includes Taron Egerton as Eggsy with Halle Berry appearing as the head of the CIA, Pedro Pascal as a character conveniently named “Jack Daniels,” and Julianne Moore in talks to play the film’s central villain. Edward Holcroft is also set to appear in the film, though whether he will reprise as his character from the first is unclear. Mark Strong will reprise his role as Merlin, with the first teaser poster for the film revealing that Colin Firth’s Harry Hart will also return.

Matthew Vaughn returns to write and direct the film, which sees Eggsy heading to the United States where he’ll meet his match in a “swaggering, sharpshooting cowboy.”

20th Century Fox has set a June 16, 2017 release date for Kingsman: The Golden Circle.

First Photo of Colin Firth on the Kingsman 2 Set

SuperHeroHype

Jul 11, 2016

Back in April, the first teaser poster for Kingsman: The Golden Circle hinted at the return of Colin Firth’s secret agent Harry Hart/”Galahad” with the character’s signature glasses over text which read, “Reports of my death have been greatly exaggerated.” Now a new snapshot from the set via co-star Pedro Pascale’s Instagram seems to indicate that a full-on resurrection (as opposed to flashback, twin brother, etc) is afoot.
