Kingsman: The Secret Service is already getting high marks for being a very stylish and fun spy-genre film. Based the film adapted from the Mark Millar and Dave Gibbons comic book of the same name. The story centers on a group of well-dress and well-mannered secret agents, where Harry Hart (Colin Firth) recruits (Taron Egerton) into being top spy fit to be a Kingsman.
The heavy British accents might be a dead giveaway as to where the opertion is run, but director Matthew Vaughn (Kick-Ass) says that there may be an opportunity to explore just how expansive the Kingsman agency is by going across the pond into U.S. territory for a sequel. Hit the jump for more.
In an interview with MovieFone, director Matthew Vaughn says that a sequel depends on the audience, and if one does get the greenlight, he adds, “We’ve got a really fun idea for the sequel” and “you wouldn’t believe what we’ve got in store.”
I have yet to see the film, which opens in theaters in the U.S. on February 13, 2015, but those who I’ve talked to who have speak highly of the action sequence that takes place in a church. So I’m not sure how they can top it, but if anyone can do it, it’s Vaughn.
In regards to the possible sequel, Vaughn had this to say,
This movie really is the origin story of Eggsy. And Eggsy is really the real, true modern gentleman spy. It really isn’t Harry Hart. Harry Hart is the old cliché of what you think a gentleman spy is. Eggsy will be taking on a whole new way.
Here’s what he said about branching out the agency:
“Poor Mark Strong will be going on a journey that he never imagined. And we’ve got this idea to introduce the world to the American branch of the Kingsman.”
Based on those statements, Vaughn would be taking the film in the right direction. However, a sequel will not happen if this first effort doesn’t meet certain box office expectations. So if you want to see a Kingsman 2, you’ll just have to head out and see the movie this weekend.
Kingsman: The Secret Service also stars Samuel L. Jackson, Mark Strong, Sofia Boutella,, and Mark Hammil.
