While casting for a couple of major roles still needs confirmation, plot details and the official title for the upcoming sequel to Kingsman: The Secret Service have been revealed. Let’s get to it!
According to The Movie Bit, the plot details along with the title and concept art for the Kingsman sequel were revealed during Matthew Vaughn’s interview with Empire. The sequel will be titled Kingsman: The Golden Circle. The plot will include Taron Egerton’s Gary “Eggsy” Unwin and Mark Strong’s Merlin going to America after their Kingsman headquarters gets blown up. In America the two team up with the Statesman (I like the word play going on here).
The Statesman is led by Ginger and Jack who’s being described as a “swaggering, sharpshooting cowboy”. Halle Berry has been in talks to play the role of Ginger and I really want her to accept. She has experience playing a spy, and the name of her character makes me remember her role alongside Hugh Jackman and John Travolta in the action crime thriller Swordfish. Kingsman: The Golden Circle will be the second installment in the planned trilogy with Halle Berry reprising her role in the third film if she accepts the offer.
Julianne Moore will be playing the villain named Poppy who happens to have a lair called Poppyland if one is to look at the concept art for the film. The presence of Julianne Moore and Halle Berry is a major reason I’m looking forward to this film. It’s not often we get to see two talented Hollywood actresses share the same screen and also in major roles, especially considering the age group those two belong to.
Vaughn also teased a skiing sequence, robot dogs, one-armed henchmen, and a set piece involving a giant frankfurter in the sequel. I can’t wait!
Kingsman: The Secret Service made $414 million on a $81 million budget. Matthew Vaughn will return to direct the film as well as pen the screenplay with Jane Goldman.
