'Kingsman: Secret Service' Sequel Could Introduce American Branch
There are some evening screenings of Kingsman: The Secret Service hitting theaters tonight, and we'll finally get to see the wild spy action adventure director Matthew Vaughn has cooked up, based on Mark Millar's comic of the same name. And it sounds like Vaughn already has some big ideas for the sequel. The director recently chatted with Moviefone and while there's no deal in place for a sequel, if the film does well at the box office this weekend, you can bet 20th Century Fox will want to see more of the secret agent organization on the big screen, and Vaughn is game for coming back, "I’d love to do another one." Read on!
Vaughn says that the sequel would continue to follow Eggsy (Taron Egerton) as he defies that classic definition of what it means to be a gentlemen spy. And while Vaughn didn't give up too many details about where the story could go, he did give some hints, "We had so much fun making this movie. And you wouldn’t believe what we’ve got in store. Poor Mark Strong will be going on a journey that he never imagined. And we’ve got this idea to introduce the world to the American branch of the Kingsman." That would open the door for plenty of American action actors to join the Kingsman ranks.
It would be cool to see someone like George Clooney stepping into a Colin Firth style role as part of the American side of Kingsman, but we're getting ahead of ourselves. Vaughn pulled the reins a bit when teasing the sequel, but he did add, "“Listen, all of [the Kingsmen] will be doing stuff… And the villain we’ve come up with… We’ve got a really fun idea for the sequel.” But if we want to see what Vaughn has in store, audiences have to turn out to see Kingsman: The Secret Serivce this weekend. So round up your mates and go see what promises to be a fun time at the movies.
