Kingsman: The Secret Service exceeded expectations last year by grossing over $400 million worldwide, so anticipation for the sequel – titled The Golden Circle – is at a high.
Matthew Vaughn is returning to direct and he’s assembled an amazing group of actors which continues to grow. The latest addition is Jeff Bridges (Iron Man, True Grit), meaning that he’ll be reunited with his The Big Lebowski and Seventh Son co-star Julianne Moore. There’s currently no word on who he’s playing or just how significant a role he’ll end up having.
The way casting additions have been made has been unique to say the least; rather than the trades breaking the news, those who have been added to The Golden Circle have shared posters like the one you see below via social media confirming their involvement.
Who else will be showing up? Well, Taron Egerton is returning as Eggsy, Mark Strong will be back as Merlin, and joining them are Halle Berry as the head of the CIA, Pedro Pascal as a mysterious character called “Jack Daniels”, Channing Tatum, Julianne Moore (as the lead villain), and, believe it or not, even Sir Elton John is set to make an appearance here!
Kingsman: The Golden Circle is set to be released worldwide on June 16th, 2017.
