'Kingsman 3' is Being Planned by Matthew Vaughn
Posted 2017/12/13 0 0
After the success of Kingsman: The Golden Circle earlier this year, it sounds like Matthew Vaughn is planning another adventure for the Secret Service.
After storming the box-office back in September with nearly $400 million in worldwide gross (from a reported $104 million budget), Kingsman: The Golden Circle looks like it will have a follow-up. The news that Vaughn’s attention is still focused on finishing his trilogy was revealed to CBR, by Visual Effects Supervisor Angus Bickerton at a Blu-ray event for Kingsman: The Golden Circle:
“We’ve had the briefest of conversations with Matthew [Vaughn] about it…he’s got plans.”
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’s so many options, but I also think it’s better not to be too greedy.”
While the first film was based on the plot of the comic book The Secret Service by Dave Gibbons and Mark Millar, Vaughn handled the heavy lifting on the plot of The Golden Circle, handling the script with longtime writing partner Jane Goldman. Vaughn was already working on ideas for a followup during the production of the latest film.
ComicBook.com previously spoke with actors Colin Firth and Jeff Bridges, who play Harry Hart and Champ, respectively. Both actors seem excited at the prospect of returning.
“We’re working on it,” said Bridges. “Between interviews, we’re jamming on ideas. There’s no script but Matthew [Vaughn]’s been talking about it from the beginning! [Colin] You said he’s always envisioned it as a trilogy."
“I remember very early conversations with Matthew,” said Firth. “He felt that three [movies] would be right for this. He hadn’t got them mapped out, I just think he could feel three.”
