It's not great a surprise that with KINGSMAN: THE SECRET SERVICE bringing it over $400 million worldwide, there would be a sequel in the works. Director Matthew Vaughn is not known to return to a franchise fto direct a sequel (despite most of his movies having them), although it looks like if there's any series that he may break this rule, it'll be KINGSMAN. Recently speaking about the upcoming sequel, he had the following to say regarding his chances of directing.

Matthew Vaughn on the KINGSMAN sequel:

The good news is that I’m writing it next door at the moment. If I think I can get the script good enough, then we are making it. We're doing our damnedest to make that happen. I have to feel inspired and that I'm doing something different and pushing my boundaries. Sequels normally, ya know, you're just doing more of the same. I'm trying to reinvent how to do a sequel at the moment and it's tough. I’m in love with these characters and I want to work with them again so I’ll probably be breaking the rule of tending not to make sequels. The bottom line is that I have to feel excited and think that I'll learn something new when I make a film.

Given how KICK-ASS 2 compared to the first, I would love if Matthew Vaughn stayed on for a KINGSMAN sequel. He's got a real knack for blending R-rated elements into a fun and entertaining package. Still, I wouldn't be surprised if he found himself tackling a new project, so I hope that whoever steps in to film KINGSMAN 2 will make us proud. Widely praised R-rated action pictures aren't exactly the norm, so we can use all the great ones we can get!

KINGSMAN: THE SECRET SERVICE is now available on Blu-ray/DVD.

I don't know how you top that church scene, but I am willing to watch whatever they come up with next. The movie is still some of the most fun I have had this year at the theater.

Finally bought the movie & watched it last night. Definitely a fun movie that deserved the hype & to become a hit. Smart & funny at times but didn't go into parody mode & some great action scenes, that church scene wow, when all the heads are blowing up into fireworks (guessing to avoid an NC-17), hilarious!. I welcome a sequel with Eggsy & hopefully they can figure a way to bring Harry back.

The exploding heads was probably a stylistic choice, not an effort to avoid a worse rating. Would it have been as funny if all the explosions were bloody? I don't think it would.

Excellent news. Kingsman is one of the best, most entertaining movies I've seen in a while. Just a helluva fun ride. The script is smart and witty, the action is stylized differently than anything I've seen, and the acting by Colin Firth and gang are spot on. From what I've been following from Vaughn, it sounds like he's had this sequel in mind for awhile and knows what he wants to do. I'm all for it.

I'm sure the movie is great but I just can't bring myself to watch anything connected to Mark Millar. He got famous in comics on an idea for a Superman story Grant Morrison gave him. He later claimed it was his idea all along. I just can't support that.

Plain and simple, the quality and excitement of this film outweighs your reservations against Millar. Do yourself a favor: suck it up and watch it.

This is great news. Absolutely loved Kingsman and I do hope that a certain character comes back from the first film to be in the sequel. It would perhaps be cliche and would maybe make the first movie seem to have less consequences of the character's actions from the first one, but damn do I want to see another epic scene like the church brawl.

He won't. He'll pull out in the last moment and be replaced by Brett Ratner.
But, if he does. I'm "hip" to this news.
