Matthew Vaughan is keen on expanding the Kingsman movie franchise and his goal is big, to say the least.
The director of the first two films is planning on making 'something like seven more'. Yes, seven more films.
Not only that, but it looks like we could be getting a full-on universe that revolves around the British secret agents.
"We want to grow the business and the output," Marv Group CEO Zygi Kamasa told the Winston Baker UK Finance Summit, according to Deadline.
"We have a Kingsman TV series in the works and there are two-three other franchises that are being developed alongside the Kingsman world."
This isn't the first time Vaughan has signalled that he wants Kingsman to be a fully-fledged movie empire.
"There's two more to come - hopefully, people like them enough that we can count on making another one," he said earlier this year.
The next movie in the franchise is due to be released early next year and will be a prequel starring Ralph Fiennes, Daniel Bruhl, Stanley Tucci, Gemma Arterton, Matthew Goode, Aaron Taylor-Johnson and Djimon Hounsou.
Titled The King's Man, the movie dropped its first trailer back in June.
The film will move away from the story fans know, which focuses on Taron Egerton's character Eggsy, and look back at the origins of the Kingsman Agency.
The synopsis says: "As a collection of history's worst tyrants and criminal masterminds gather to plot a war to wipe out millions, one man must race against time to stop them. Discover the origins of the very first independent intelligence agency in The King's Man."
For a while many believed the new movie would be called 'The Great Game', but discussing the prequel earlier this year, Vaughan revealed this would not be the case.
Speaking to The Playlist, the Layer Cake director said: "Next year you're getting The Great Game. It's wrapped. [But] it's not actually called The Great Game.
"I love spy movies, and this is a very very different tone and style and as a spy film, that no one's made in a long, long time. And then we hope to shoot Kingsman 3 either late this year or early next year, but it won't be out until 2021, so, who knows?"
