A sequel to Kingsman: The Secret Service is in the works

04.29.2015

While KINGSMAN: THE SECRET SERVICE may have proven to be a bit of a surprise hit, it shouldn't be a surprise for anyone that given the film's critical and commercial success (it just crossed $400 million worldwide) that a sequel is now in the works at Fox. The Wrap reports that despite no announcement by the studio or a timetable in place, a sequel to KINGSMAN: THE SECRET SERVICE will indeed to coming.

I'd imagine that Fox would like to get things moving as soon as they can before breakout star Taron Egerton finds himself too busy to return for another round of bad-ass spy antics. Director Matthew Vaughn had previously spoken about ideas for a sequel before anyone knew what a massive success KINGSMAN: THE SECRET SERVICE would turn out to be:

I'd love to do a sequel, but it's really up to the public isn't it? We've got some really bold ideas. If you think about it, this is the origin story of Eggsy. Eggsy is now the true modern gentleman spy. So there's a journey we want to put him on. I love the idea of there being none of that training crap, this is the real modern day gentleman spy going off to deal with quite the... (stops himself) Again, there's some really crazy stuff we've got planned. But I can't do it if no one goes to see it.

Vaughn also mentioned that an American branch of Kingsman could play a part in a sequel; seeing Eggsy butt heads with his American counterpart might make for some entertaining culture clash.

Now I'm about to enter spoiler territory here so those of you who have yet to see the film should be aware of that. Again, here be spoilers. Once, twice, three times a spoiler. I could go on but hopefully you get the idea.

As we know, poor Colin Firth didn't exactly make it to the finish line of KINGSMAN: THE SECRET SERVICE, but what does this mean for his sequel chances? After the film opened Matthew Vaughn touched upon that very topic saying:

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.

People certainly bought tickets but whether Colin Firth returns remains to be seen. As much as I loved him and his character, I hope they let the sequel rest solely on Taron Egerton; in addition to Firth's possible return undermining the impact of his death I feel like Egerton has completely earned the right to be the main draw of a sequel. That said, should Colin Firth pop up for a flashback or two, I'd be more than okay with that.

Loved the movie and thought it did a great job utilizing an actor you wouldn't think of being in an action film. They should keep up the trend and cast Hugh Grant for the next one, beef up Mark Strongs role and add Anthony Stewart Head!

What happened to the Flash Gordon rumour?

That got me just as excited.
For Kingsman 2, I'd rather they beef up Mark Strong's part than screw with continuity. He nailed all his scenes.

I would actually prefer a prequel with just Colin Firth's character because he was so damn cool in this and the church scene owned. But a sequel will be cool as well. I imagine that of they will have Firth back in some capacity it will be in flashback scenes or something like that, because if they try to say he did not die that would be weak.

Fuck yeah!!!

I'm so glad KINGSMAN is getting a sequel. I loved this sequel, and so did the wife. All I wish is that Matthew Vaughn sticks around to direct the second flick. KICK-ASS 2 was such a let-down.

The trick is how to make a movie that's even more bug-nuts than the last one. I swear it felt like the stars really aligned for that one. Colin Firth kicking butt, Sam Jackson having the time of his life, and even Harry Palmer sitting at the head of the table. Now, while I'm all for Egerton becoming full-on hero spy, finding a good villain, and maybe another throwback to the old spy movies (be it Roger Moore, or someone younger), or maybe one in the same. I figure an American counterpart would

Of course it needs a sequel.

A romance between EGGSY and ROXY was hinted at, but nothing happened (he slept with that princess instead). That made me think it was going to be a BOND & MONEYPENNY situation: EGGSY will a get a different girl each movie (assuming they make more than 1 sequel), but ROXY will always be his true love.

I guess I'm the only one who wasn't blown away by this movie. It was entertaining, but had too many plot holes, and was really too similar to Wanted in a lot of story areas (yes, I known they come from the same author). Firth was awesome though, so if he's back I could live with a sequel.

Let's hope for God's sake, that Matthew Vaughn actually sticks around and follows through with the sequel for once!

And while were all going at it Pacific Rim 2 is coming in a few years. If the DC-verse is as good as it has potential to be this will be an incredible few years for movies.

With this finally getting a sequel and with Deadpool actually being made, I couldn't be happier.
