If you’re one of those folks who managed to get down to the theater and see Kingsman this past spring, then you know what an amazing flick it was. Director Matthew Vaughn took spy movies to an entirely new level with a portrayal of subterfuge that was both humorous and darkly vicious. Not to mention, Kingsman had some of the most brilliant action scenes that have ever graced the big screen. For fans of the flick, there’s some good news coming – for it seems as if a sequel to Kingsman is on the way.
The first movie brought in more than $400 million worldwide, so it was only a matter of time before the studio looked at the numbers and decided to give a green light on more Kingsman action. The rumors have been flying for several months now, though nothing had been confirmed until Vaughn stepped up and uttered these prophetic words:
“Well, 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 are doing our damnedest to make that happen.”
So, it’s not OFFICIALLY official quite yet, but it sounds like the studio is ready to go. Now it’s just up to Vaughn to feel satisfied enough with his script that he actually wants to go ahead with it himself. Though the question still remains, will Vaughn be bringing his directorial talents back to the Kingsman franchise or will he hand it off to another? According to more of Vaughn’s words, it sounds like he’ll be sticking around:
“I’m in love with these characters and I want to work with them again so I’ll probably be breaking the rule of me tending not to make sequels.”
Of course, Vaughn has dropped out of more than one project after expressing interest in it, so we’ll never know until the film actually makes it to production and his name is inked onto the contract. And even then he still might fade away to chase some other shining star. One thing’s for certain though – if Vaughn isn’t involved, we might not be getting the Kingsman sequel that we deserve. I mean, look at what happened with Kick-Ass 2…
What say the Nerd Readers? You ready for some more Kingsman? Would you still go see it if Vaughn opted out of his directorial duties and left someone else in charge?
