Director Matthew Vaughn has said that the upcoming film The King’s Man which is prequel to The Kingsman series includes the seeds for the third film of the series. In a recent interview with Empire Magazine, Matthew told “We’ve put seeds for what’s going to happen in Kingsman 3 all the way back into this, And it’s going to be very different.”
Kingsman 3 will be sequel to the 2014’s Kingsman: The Secret Service and 2017’s follow-up Kingsman: The Golden Circle. The adventure of Harry Hart-Eggsy will return in this film but as of now, there is no date for the film release. Initially, Vaughn was planning to hand the third film to another director but now he is considering himself for the role, “I actually don’t know what I want to do, there is an opportunity for a director to really change it up, but I’m considering it.”
Meanwhile, The King’s Man is hitting the cinemas next month worldwide. The film will take place 100 years before the event of the first two films and will explore the origins of the espionage agency against the backdrop of World War I, taking in real-life figures and events including Rasputin and the assassination of Franz Ferdinand. Ralph Fiennes, Gemma Arterton, Rhys Ifans, Matthew Goode, Tom Hollander, Harris Dickinson, Daniel Brühl, Djimon Hounsou, and Charles Dance star in the film based on The Secret Service comics by Mark Millar and Dave Gibbons. Vaughn also produces the prequel along with David Reid and Adam Bohling.
Vaughn also teased a longer cut for The King’s Man and revealed that he is already preparing for a director's cut of the film “I’ve cut so much out of this film that there’s going to be a 40-minute longer version, I’ll do “The King’s Man Vaughn Cut’. I’ve got a few really dirty fucking jokes in there.”
The King’s Man is currently expected to hit the UK cinemas on 16 September.
The full interview will be available in the Empire Magazine August 6 edition. You can read the original story here.
