In the new issue of Empire, Kingsman: The Secret Service director Matthew Vaughn gave an interview where he revealed details about, and concept art for, the film’s forthcoming sequel.
Titled Kingsman: The Golden Circle, the movie will star Julianne Moore as the principal antagonist, with an appearance by Halle Berry as well (at least her third comic book role). A good bit of the action will move from Kingsman to Statesman, the organization’s U.S. equivalent.
“I didn’t know if I wanted to direct this or not,” Vaughn said in an interview transcribed by CBM, who also scanned the concept art. “I was worried about the villain. Spy films are only as good as their villains. Then one morning I woke up with the whole storyline in place, and a new villain plot.”
The film will dabble in spy tropes like a ski sequence and a barroom brawl, but insert quirky and Kingsman-esque ideas like robot dogs, one-armed henchmen, and apparently a battle with…”a giant f—ing frankfurter?”
“Kingsman: The Golden Circle” is expected to arrive June 2017 from 20th Century Fox.
