Matthew Vaughn will round out the Kingsman trilogy.
Entertainment Weekly reports that the writer-director will be back for the third installment of the spy franchise. This third film will hit theaters November 9, 2019, instead of James Bond 25 that got pushed back to early 2020.
Vaughn will serve as writer and director, just like he did in the first two installments, Kingsman: The Secret Service and Kingsman: The Golden Circle. The two installments were box office hits earning $414 and $410 million worldwide respectively.
The first films introduced Eggsy, played by Taron Egerton, a street-smart English delinquent handpicked by Hart, played by Colin Firth to become part of Kingsman, an organization of suave super spies. The two saved the world from villain Valentine played by Samuel L. Jackson and then went on to save the world from a new villain, Poppy, a drug kingpin played by Julianna Moore, introduced in the second film.
While plot details are kept under wraps, Vaughn did reveal in a recent interview that the upcoming installment would mark “the conclusion of the Harry Hart-Eggsy relationship.”
The films are based on the Kingsman comics penned by Mark Miller and illustrated by Dave Gibbons.
