Matthew Vaughn is back on board to write and direct part three
The Kingsman movies have somewhat been an under-the-radar hit.
Starring Colin Firth, Taron Egerton, Samuel L Jackson, and Mark Strong, the first one was far from a perfect movie, but did have one truly extraordinary single-take scene: an incredible action sequence where Colin Firth shoots up an entire church to the strains of Lynyrd Skynyrd’s “Freebird”.
The film did well at the box office, and its profile seemed to grow through word of mouth, and last year the follow-up Kingman: The Golden Circle was released. It introduced the Statesman, the American counterpart to the very British Kingsman society of secret spies, along with big-name additions to cast including Channing Tatum and Julianne Moore.
It has now been confirmed that a third movie is on the way – IGN reports that Fox have announced the second sequel will hit cinemas on November 9th, 2019.
Matthew Vaughn will return to direct, write and produce.
Vaughn has previously spoken about his future Kingsman plans, and has hinted that the threequel will tie up the relationship between Eggsy (Taron Egerton) and Harry Hart (Firth).
Vaughn is also looking to use the film to introduce flashbacks to the Kingsman in the early twentieth century, to eventually be spun off into a prequel called Kingsman: The Great Game. Two new characters will feature in those flashbacks: a teen named Conrad, who wants to fight in World War I, and older male lead, who there are no details of yet, but is rumoured to be played by Ralph Fiennes.
Previous reports suggested that the third Kingsman movie will start filming in January 2019 in the UK, and Vaughn has plans to film the prequel back-to-back with it.
There are also reportedly plans for an eight-hour Kingsman TV series, and a Statesman spin-off movie.
