Movie Report: Third ‘Kingsman’ in the works

Deadline is reporting Director Matthew Vaughn is working on the third “Kingsman” picture.

According to Deadline Hollywood, the third film will end the era of the two spies Eggsy, played by Taron Egerton and Harry, portrayed by Colin Firth. The series started with “Kingsman The Secret Service” in 2014 and continued with “The Golden Circle” in 2017.

Vaughn stated he plans to finish off Eggsy and Harry’s adventures with a finale in part three, Deadline reports. The film is expected to shoot either late 2019 or early 2020.

In addition to the third feature, Deadline also reports Vaughn is directing “Kingsman: The Great Game,” a prequel movie featuring Harris Dickinson and Liam Neeson. That picture is set for 2020.

As a whole, the “Kingsman” series is based on a comic book saga titled “The Secret Service” by Dave Gibbons and Mark Millar.

Before “Kingsman,” Vaughn directed “X-Men: First Class” and “Kick-Ass.” Egerton is starring in the Elton John biopic “Rocketman,” releasing this weekend.
