‘Kingsman: The Golden Circle’ Reunites Vinnie Jones With Director Matthew Vaughn

The CW

Former British footballer Vinnie Jones landed his big acting break in the Matthew Vaughn-produced Guy Ritchie film Lock, Stock and Two Smoking Barrels — so it’s hardly surprising that Jones is the latest addition to the cast of Kingsman: The Golden Circle. If anything, it has us wondering why Jones didn’t pop up in the Kingsman universe a little sooner.

‘Kingsman 2’ Official Title, Concept Art and Details Revealed

20th Century Fox

Kingsman: The Secret Service, based on the Icon comic by Mark Millar and Dave Gibbons, was the big sleeper hit of 2015, its nihilistic sense of black humor and highly stylized action resonating with a surprisingly large audience. Naturally, a sequel couldn’t have been far off, and while director Matthew Vaughn has already confirmed that he’ll write and direct a follow-up for release on June 16, 2017, basic details have yet to come to light.

We’re still waiting to see how (or if) Matthew Vaughn will revive Colin Firth’s Harry Hart for his sequel to Kingsman: The Secret Service, based on the comic series by Mark Millar and Dave Gibbons, but there’s another character who definitely will be making a rather unexpected return. And given who it is and how we last saw them, it’s pretty safe to assume that this particular character won’t be an ally to Taron Egerton’s Eggsy in Kingsman 2.

‘Kingsman 2’ Casts Julianne Moore as the Film’s New Villain

Before Deadpool, Fox had another R-rated comic book movie that was a surprise success on Valentine’s Day weekend. Kingsman opened in theaters on February 12 of last year to over $400 million worldwide and it didn’t take long before Kingsman 2 was greenlit at Fox. With many of the characters from the original not surviving for a sequel, director Matthew Vaughn has had to cast some new actors, and he’s already found his new villain. Julianne Moore has signed on to star in the film as the latest supervillain to terrorize Eggsy.

‘Kingsman 2’ Will Go International, Taron Egerton Teases a Villain to Rival Samuel L. Jackson

A villain that rivals the indulgent, maniacal wackiness of Samuel L. Jackson in Kingsman: The Secret Service? That’s a bold claim, but it’s one Taron Egerton is making as the actor teases what we can expect from Kingsman 2. Not only will the follow-up have a great villain, but the action won’t be confined to the U.K. as director Matthew Vaughn is taking young Eggsy international.

Matthew Vaughn’s ‘Flash Gordon’ Movie Hires ‘I Am Legend’ Screenwriter

And in distinctively other superhero news, Matthew Vaughn’s Flash Gordon movie is picking up a bit of steam. After years of failed development, the project finally started to get somewhere when Vaughn signed on to direct last year, and although a couple of writers have already taken a pass at the screenplay, the hiring of I Am Legend and Oldboy scribe Mark Protosevich may prove a bit more fruitful.

20th Century Fox

Taron Egerton has become quite popular since his breakout role earlier this year in Matthew Vaughn’s Kingsman: The Secret Service, and while that’s great news for the actor and his fans, it’s a bit tricky for his scheduling, which has gotten a little complicated. And it’s Egerton’s popularity that’s causing a slight issue for Kingsman 2 as it prepares to head into production in the spring.

Matthew Vaughn Teases Hit Girl Prequel, Possible ‘Kick-Ass 3,’ If You’re Into That

Lionsgate

First of all, let’s not take this news too seriously — Matthew Vaughn has been known to set his sights on projects only to abandon them when he loses interest, and he’s also never directed a sequel to one of his own films before. That may change soon, as Vaughn is currently writing a Kingsman sequel, which he’d also like to direct. And since he’s got sequels on the brain, he’s also revealed some other potential plans. The keyword here being “potential.”

‘Kick-Ass’ Director Matthew Vaughn Says Audiences “Have Had Enough” of Dark Superhero Movies

Kick-Ass Chloe Moretz
Lionsgate

As ‘Batman’ goes, so goes comic-book movies. When Tim Burton turned the Dark Knight into a retro-gothic hero, Hollywood followed suit with a slew of heavily stylized pulp throwbacks. (See: ‘Dick Tracy,’ ‘The Phantom,’ ‘The Shadow,’ etc.) And when Christopher Nolan turned the Dark Knight into, well, ‘The Dark Knight,’ it sparked a wave of “grim and gritty” movies, with serious superheroes doing and saying serious things in outrageous spandex costumes that had been reimagined as biker gear or body armor. (See: ‘Man of Steel’ [Or maybe don’t.]) There’s been some pushback, but we’re really only now coming out of the trend toward ultra-serious, uber-dark comic-book movies.
