Kingsman: The Secret Service

Story by Jack Foley

A SEQUEL to Matthew Vaughn’s hit spy adventure Kingsman: The Secret Service is reportedly in the works.

According to The Wrap, a follow-up is in development even though a cast has yet to be confirmed.

The first film starred Taron Egerton as an unrefined youth who is mentored into becoming a spy by Colin Firth’s dapper 007-style agent. It has become a global box office success, crossing the $400 million mark, and becoming the biggest film of the year in South Korea. It cost $81m to make.

Vaughn has always hinted at the possibility of a sequel and is even toying with the idea of bringing back Firth, even though the character the actor played apparently met his demise.

In an interview with USA Today, he said: “A lot of people are very upset that Colin might not be in the sequel. But I’m coming up with ideas at the moment. If people buy tickets in America, I’ve got a feeling we’ll figure out a way for having Colin back.

“The opening of Kingsman 2 will have a sauna and the sauna door opens and out comes Colin. It was all a dream!”
