The year 2014 saw the genesis of the Kingsman franchise with our favourite secret service duo Harry Hart (Colin Firth) and Eggsy Unwin (Taron Egerton) donning some seriously fire threads and kicking Samuel L. Jackson’s ass. Since then, the film’s director Matthew Vaughn followed it up with a sequel in 2017, Kingsman: The Golden Circle, and has now expanded its universe with the highly-anticipated prequel The King’s Man that’s set to drop in 2020.
While Ralph Fiennes’ turn-of-the-century outing looks awesome, our attention has been snared this morning by the reports of an epic finale to the original duo of films.
During an appearance at this week’s ACE Comic-Con Midwest, Egerton teased fans with few details about the third Kingsman instalment, but he did blithely confirm that the script has been written and complete. When asked about the film’s plot, Egerton didn’t say, simply stating that it is a really great idea that will blow minds.
Egerton expressed that he’s keen to shoot this third film as he wants to give Eggsy the greatest goodbye he can, a nod to the character that kicked off his career. His statements regarding Kingsman 3 mimic Vaughn’s, who has previously confirmed that the third film will be the last, wrapping up Harry and Eggsy’s alliance, with fans seeing them venture out into territories they’ve never dealt with before.
Sounds like exciting stuff! And with the script written, this can only mean that production on Kingsman 3 will likely begin very soon.
Until then, fans can catch the trailer for The Kings Man.
