Matthew Vaughn was at a Fox footage event in London today. After the audience was shown about 30 minutes of the new Kingsman: The Golden Circle, the director did a Q&A with co-writer Jane Goldman. During the session, Vaughn said:
Weirdly while we were writing Kingsman 2, we were thinking of Kingsman 3 as well, which is odd. We’ve got a big idea for that. This is sort of the bridge and if we can pull this off, we’ll make another one.
This is an interesting statement coming from the man who, by his own admission, was hesitant to make a sequel to the film in the first place.
I was very hesitant about making a sequel purely because so many sequels don’t really enhance the experience. They’re normally bigger but not necessarily better. Kick-Ass 2’ was a big learning curve of how not to make a sequel. We don’t set out to make a terrible film.
Kingsman: The Golden Circle features Taron Egerton returning as agent Eggsy joined by a cast that includes Channing Tatum, Halle Berry, Julianne Moore, Jeff Bridges and Mark Strong.
