We already know Matthew Vaughn has written the follow-up and will return to direct, and according to Egerton, the filmmaker’s plans for the movie are even bigger than expected.
“With Kingsman, we’re shooting in the summer at present. There’s a script, it’s brilliant,” he revealed in a chat with Empire. “Obviously there’s only so much I can say but what I can say is that we shot the first one all in the UK, that won’t be the case with the next one. It’s a far more international story, we’re going to some incredible places, and we have a villain to rival Samuel L. Jackson – this new one is so brilliantly written I wish I could play it. It’s amazing.”
While Kingsman: The Secret Service was based on Mark Millar and Dave Gibbons’ comic book of the same name, Vaughn is going to be coming up with a story of his own for the sequel. Rumours are also swirling about Colin Firth making a return, so it’s going to be interesting to see how this one develops over the coming months as it begins shooting!
