“Kingsman: The Secret Service” star Taron Egerton says that the upcoming sequel will be even more extreme than the original.
“[Matthew Vaughn] goes even further with it,” Egerton told CinemaBlend about the film. “It’s kind of absolutely crazy. Julianne Moore is the villain, and she’s genuinely terrifying. She’s really, really, really great. So it’s bigger, badder, more guns, you know? All that stuff. It’s fun.”
“Kingsman: The Secret Service” made a big splash when it hit theaters in 2015, earning $412.4 million worldwide on a less than $100 million budget. It starred Egerton, Colin Firth, Samuel L. Jackson, Mark Strong and Michael Caine.
The sequel, titled “Kingsman: The Golden Circle,” is set for an October 6, 2017 release. Plot details are scarce, but the film, based on a screenplay by the original’s writer/director Matthew Vaughn, will feature Egerton, Strong, Moore, Jeff Bridges, Vinnie Jones, Channing Tatum, Halle Berry and Pedro Pascal.
Elton John is also rumored to make an appearance, and Vaughn has said that Firth, whose character was killed in the first film, will be returning in some capacity.
Egerton also offered some hope for fans clamoring for a first glimpse at the sequel, saying that, while he is not sure when exactly a trailer will be release, he “can’t imagine” it would be too late in 2017.
“I think maybe there would be a teaser within the first couple of months of next year,” he said. “It depends, I really don’t know. Matthew Vaughn works in mysterious ways, but you won’t be disappointed, it’s going to be awesome.”
