Director Confirms Filming Has Finished On New Kingsman Movie
Filming has officially wrapped on the next Kingsman film.
The next instalment of the spy caper - which is a prequel rather than the third part of Gary 'Eggsy' Unwin's story - is due out next year and the film's director Matthew Vaughn said it will be different from the previous two.
Vaughn said the new movie will move away from the story of the previous movies, which star Taron Egerton as Eggsy, and look back at the origins of the Kingsman Agency.
And while he couldn't confirm the title, he did say what it won't be called.
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 don't know what it's going to be called. That's a working title. We wrapped last week, so we're very excited about it. It's incredibly different.
"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?"
By the sounds of it, Vaughn has plans for many more Kingsman movies after these next two.
He added: "There's two more to come - hopefully, people like them enough that we can count on making another one.
"MARV Films [Vaughn's production company] loves spy films, so I'd love to always be making them, and the whole point about Kingsman is a celebration of espionage. And Kingsman will always make the spy film that no one else is touching."
In the candid interview, the director also spoke of his love for spy thrillers and even said he was once close to taking the director's chair for the most iconic spy of them all, but it never quite materialised.
He said: "I nearly directed a Bond [film]. And I didn't get the chance, but you know, if you can't beat 'em, join 'em... or if you can't join 'em, beat 'em, whatever the expression is.
"So yeah, I love spy movies, I love Austin Powers, In Like Flint, Bourne, 24, you name it. I'm an espionage freak, so this was my version."
The next Kingsman film, which will definitely not be called The Great Game, is set to hit cinemas on 14 February 2020.
