Exclusive: Matthew Vaughn shares details on Kingsman 2 and Kick Ass 3

02.09.2015

Matthew Vaughn is a director that everybody wants to see do amazing things. From his underrated work on STARDUST and LAYER CAKE to his kick ass work on, well, KICK-ASS and X-MEN: FIRST CLASS, Vaughn has shown he has a distinct flair for visual awesomeness that has linked him from everything including a STAR WARS movie to sequels to his existing work.

In anticipation for the release of KINGSMAN: THE SECRET SERVICE this Friday, our very own Eric Walkuski sat down with the filmmaker to learn some intriguing tidbits about projects we all want to know about.

When asked if KICK-ASS 3 is coming:

Do you know what's going to be next if I do it... we've finished plotting it. What we have to do is, we've got to do the FIRST CLASS to the KICK-ASS world. We lost a few fans on Kick-Ass 2. It wasn't as loved as one would've hoped. So we have this idea for a Hit Girl prequel. It's a really strong, really simple prequel where I think we can regain the love and the passion. If that happens, I'm pretty sure I can persuade Aaron and Chloe to come back and finish the story of Kick-Ass with Kick-Ass 3.

Is KICK-ASS 3 actively in development?

Mark and I have already plotted Hit Girl. We have to get the script done next. It's so far out there, you have no idea.

Would he be willing to direct KICK-ASS 3?

No, I wouldn't direct. We spoke about it to Gareth Evans a couple of years ago. I'd get someone like that, a really bold, clever director. Most of it is set in the far east.

Here is what he said about Kingsman 2:

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.

Gareth Evans for the HIT-GIRL movie is something we have heard before, but how amazing would that be!  The guy responsible for THE RAID in the insane world of KICK-ASS?  I would pay to see that in a heartbeat.  It is also nice to know that Vaughn recognizes where KICK-ASS 2 fell short and what they would need to do to bring the franchise back full circle.  I just hope that fans flock to see KINGSMAN: THE SECRET SERVICE and make it a hit so we can see more of the crazy plans Matthew Vaugh and Mark Millar have up their sleeves.

KINGSMAN: THE SECRET SERVICE opens this Friday. Look for our full interview with Vaughn later this week!

No Matthew Vaugh = No Kick Ass 3

The first one was great, but Kick Ass 2 was terrible.

Blatant Copy with English tone

Is it just me or didnt kinsman used to be called wanted and starred Angelina Jolie, Its basically the same premise, they pick some dipshit off the street that doesnt realize hes much more than a grocery bagger, in reality he's the savior of humanity and gets to join a group of the same people goes through training with them and then becomes great ?????? Yeah this was called wanted and came out years ago

Kickass 1 was great but it was enough. #2 was kind of pointless. If Gareth Evans directs it could get very interesting, but I hope the Kickass story gets left behind and they come up with something else for Evans. Too bad he's not doing Deadpool.

A Secret Service sequel for sure... A third Kick-Ass I'm not so sure on. If Vaughn is heavily involved with the script and they get a solid director, then I'm interested. But there's no point in ending the trilogy if it's done like Kick Ass 2 again.

I want to see Kickass 3 like Hellboy 3, to finish the series off proper.

"this is the real modern day gentleman spy going off to deal with quite the... (stops himself)"
I'm guessing he was going to say "opposite". So it's maybe a spy who doesn't give a shit about collateral damage, remaining calm and isn't a gentleman at all? Either way, I hope he directs Kingsman 2 and doesn't pass it to someone else.

A hit girl prequel would bring back Nick Cage as her father? Im in! Then that would lead to a Part 3 Finale possibly directed by the dude who did The Raid?! ... yes please!!

No prequel!

The only reason I'd be interested in another KICK-ASS installment would be a finale. The 2nd one didn't have much closure.

Kick-Ass 2 sucked and Hit-Girl was only cool and funny in the first one because it showed her as a little girl kicking ass like crazy. When she's an adult or closer to being an adult, it's not funny, or that cool really, because it's too ordinary, too normal.
