Last year we had the absolute hit spy thriller Kingsman; The Secret Service lighting up the screen, and following on from that success, it’s already announced that the movie will be having a sequel. Now it’s just been revealed that the follow up has a title!
Director Matthew Vaughn sat down with Empire Magazine and during their conversation announced the new movie will be titled Kingsman: The Golden Circle.
The original movie was adapted from the comic books of the same name originally written by Dave Gibbons and Mark Millar about the most secret of secret spy organisations. The film gave Taron Egerton his absolute break out role and we’ve since seen him take on some amazing roles, including the soon to be released Eddie The Eagle.
When asked about taking on the sequel Vaughn said, “I didn’t know if I wanted to direct this or not.” He went on to explain further, “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.”
At this point we have no idea what that plot is exactly, it is believed that we will see Egerton’s character Eggsy travel to visit the US equivalent of The Kingsman, named The Statesmen. The organisation is run by Halle Berry’s character. The two groups will team up to battle Julianne Moore’s villain Poppy.
Those who saw the first movie will no doubt recall some spectacular scenes (the Church fight scene is my personal favourite), but the ending where everyone loses their heads in the most colourful fashion was truly straight out comic book fun. In The Golden Circle, Vaughn has mentioned a scene where the heroes are attacked by “a massive f––ing frankfurter.” So that should be rather interesting.
Kingsman: The Golden Circle is due in US cinemas on June 16, 2017.
