Kingsman sequel aiming to shoot in 2016, but with one possible snag

10.01.2015

Matthew Vaughn's highly entertaining KINGSMAN: THE SECRET SERVICE was one of the first hits of the year and it made a star of Taron Egerton, so it was only natural that talks of a sequel would soon follow. Per THR, that sequel is set to begin production next April despite neither having a script nor a director in place. Taron Egerton is contracted for the sequel and is expected to return but, owing to Egerton's rising star, there's a possible snag.

Soon after KINGSMAN: THE SECRET SERVICE became a success, Taron Egerton was nabbed for the lead role in Lionsgate's ROBIN HOOD: ORIGINS which is set to begin a lengthy production next February; now you can begin to see where the problem lies. Production on ROBIN HOOD: ORIGINS is obviously further along with THR reporting that Lionsgate is already beginning to reach out to actors to play Robin Hood's Merry Men, but Fox's option with Egerton could mean that his involvement in the KINGSMAN: THE SECRET SERVICE sequel could trump ROBIN HOOD: ORIGINS.

This all sounds rather grim but fortunately insiders believe that "things will be worked out," which can only be good news for Taron Egerton as he'd find himself at the head of two franchises. If you could only pick one, would you rather see Egerton in a KINGSMAN: THE SECRET SERVICE sequel or in ROBIN HOOD: ORIGINS?

GTFO nobody wants to see a fucking Robin Hood origins story, he's a somewhat boring character anyway. Guy should definitely do the Kingsman sequel instead & tell Lionsgate to suck it!

Maybe I would have doubts if this new ROBIN HOOD movie was the only one coming up. KINGSMAN 2 all the way!

that's a tough one actually

Have no idea if that Robin Hood film is gonna be any good, but it could be great. Loved Kingsman so I'd gravitate towards that one. But Colin firth was by far the best thing about the first one, so without him I don't know if the film will be all that great. Kickass was great too, but the sequel without Cage and Vaughn sucked ass. Kinda afraid for the same situation here.

I would rather see a sequel to Kingsman than another lame Robin Hood film. I like Taron, but I don't think he'd be doing a favor doing the Robin Hood movie. I do think it will be interesting to see what they do with another Kingsman. There's no sequel to the comic, so I wonder to what capacity Miller will be involved.

Is anyone really that interested in the "dark and gritty" origin story of Robin Hood?

The obvious choice is to drop Robin Hood and to do the Kingsmen sequel instead. But at least we have confirmation that it's actually moving forward; the only question is if Colin Firth's character is coming back.
