Vinnie Jones has joined the upcoming "Kingsman: The Secret Service" sequel from 20th Century Fox, reuniting him with director Matthew Vaughn, who produced Jones' acting debut in "Lock, Stock & Two Smoking Barrels."

Although Jones' role has yet to be disclosed, the actor is best known for playing bad guys. With Moore rumored as the film's villain earlier this year, their photo together could hint at an alliance between her character and Jones'. The source material, Mark Millar & Dave Gibbons' "Kingsman" comic book, has no sequel, which also opens up the possibility that Jones could be a secondary villain, or even the film's main antagonist.
Vaughn and Jones also worked together on the Guy Ritchie-directed "Snatch," and the former football player's credits include a memorable turn as Juggernaut in "X-Men: The Last Stand" as well as roles in "EuroTrip" and "Arrow." He will next be seen in the upcoming "The Magnificent Seven" remake.
Taron Egerton, Mark Strong, Colin Firth and Sophie Cookson are all reprising their roles from the original film, joined by newcomers Channing Tatum, Halle Berry, Jeff Bridges, Pedro Pascal and Elton John.
Like the original, "Kingsman: The Golden Circle" features a script by Matthew Vaughn and Jane Goldman, with Vaughn back in the director's chair. The film is slated for release on June 16, 2017.
