It looks like a third movie in 20th Century Fox’s Kingsman franchise is in development.
Speaking with CBR at a Blu-ray event for Kingsman: The Golden Circle Visual Effects Supervisor Angus Bickerton said,
“We’ve had the briefest of conversations with Matthew [Vaughn] about it…he’s got plans,” indicating the director could be making a return to the franchise for a third installment.
Vaughn, who is in talks to direct a Man of Steel sequel for Warner Bros., directed both the first movie, Kingsman: The Secret Service, and its sequel.
The director previously indicated that he envisions a third installment in the spy-comedy franchise, as well as spinoffs. “I think there’s a story in my head which will be finished by the end of the next one,” Vaughn said in September.
“And then after that then, of course, there could be Statesman movies, there could be spinoff character films. The universe could continue with new agents. Or, you know, Colin (Firth) could become Arthur (…) or new characters could come in. Or new kids get trained. There are so many options, but I also think it’s better not to be too greedy.”
Directed by Matthew Vaughn, Kingsman: The Golden Circle stars returning cast members TaronEgerton, Colin Firth, Mark Strong and Sophie Cookson, joined by Julianne Moore, Halle Berry, Elton John, Channing Tatum and Jeff Bridges. It’s currently available on Blu-ray, DVD and Digital HD.
