The King's Man (2020, D: Vaughn) -- Kingsman prequel -- News, rumors, etc.
 

Another Millar property that Vaughn will be expanding on the big screen is Kingsman. As well as a third regular Kingsman film (“the conclusion of the Harry Hart-Eggsy relationship,” say Vaughn), a spin-off titled Kingsman: The Great Game will explore the spy organisation in the early 1900s. The two films will shoot back-to-back. Also on the way will be an eight-hour Kingsman TV show, and a Statesman film following the world of Channing Tatum, Jeff Bridges and Halle Berry’s American agents.

Didn’t think the last one was profitable enough to justify 8 zillion spinoffs.

$410 worldwide. It outgrossed Star Trek Beyond and, at its current pace, likely will outgross Solo.

So I get why they're still banking on it, the property would have been fine if Golden Circle was a better movie.

Wow! I saw it opening weekend in an empty theater and know nobody else who has seen it.

Not really a movie series I'm interested in watching in theaters, but it's a fun enough ride for home media for me that I'd definitely check out. The first movie was a lot better than the second one though.

Still, 4 projects all at once for the Kingsman franchise? Wow.

I enjoy the series so I'll check it out. I also enjoy back story stuff.

The second one was a slight step down in quality from the first but I’ve enjoyed them both quite a bit. I’m always down for more Kingsman.

It sounds like we’re workong toward overload with a sequel, a prequel, a spin-off, and a TV series but we’ll see exactly how many of those will actually come to fruition.

If they shoot them back-to-back there's significant production costs they can save and maybe take advantage of whatever tax credits their location is offering before they run out.

Streaming services are desperate for more content so I can see a TV series pick up by Hulu, Amazon, or Netflix as a no-brainer.

I still need to see the second one. I liked the first but heard the sequel wasn’t as good so didn’t rush out to see it or buy it.

Yeah..it was shit.

It was essentially bad attempt to replicate the first film.

It was a hot mess that needed a few more months of production to fix it. Plenty of worthwhile stuff but also plenty of head-scratch inducing stuff.

If you haven’t seen it yet, no need to rush out. I’d recommend waiting until 3 is ready to come out and then buy Golden Circle cheap with an on-package ticket promotion to see 3. That way you at least get your ticket covered.

No disrespect to any entertainment reporters across the pond, but when it comes to movie news, the only UK reporter I truly trust is Baz Bamigboye at the Daily Mail. I can’t speak for the rest of that publication, but Baz has a solid track record in my book, so I believe him when he says that Aaron Taylor-Johnson is teaming back up with his Kick-Ass director Matthew Vaughn for the Kingsman prequel that has finally started production in London.

Baz took to Twitter on Thursday evening to report that Matthew Goode (Watchmen) has joined the cast along with former Bond girl Gemma Arterton, who will be playing someone’s nanny, while Tom Hollander (Bohemian Rhapsody) has been cast in three roles — George V; the Kaiser; and a Russian tsar, all of whom are part of Queen Victoria‘s family tree. Baz also confirmed Collider’s scoop that Rhys Ifans (The Amazing Spider-Man), Daniel Brühl (Captain America: Civil War) and Charles Dance (Game of Thrones) were enlisting in the prequel, which will star Harris Dickinson (FX’s Trust) and Ralph Fiennes, as well as Djimon Hounsou and Alison Steadman (Orphan Black).

We’d predicted that Vaughn would recruit some of Europe’s biggest stars for his next Kingsman film, and Taylor-Johnson, Arterton, Hollander and Goode certainly qualify. We’re not surprised, as the director is a major talent magnet who convinced Oscar winners Halle Berry, Julianne Moore and Jeff Bridges to join Kingsman: The Golden Circle along with Channing Tatum, Pedro Pascal and Elton John.

While the Kingsman prequel will be the third film in the franchise, it is not being billed as Kingsman 3, as the film will not feature franchise star Taron Egerton as Eggsy. Instead, Dickinson will play Conrad, a cocky yet charming young hero who’s eager to serve his country and fight in World War I. According to our own Steve Weintraub, the prequel is more of a period drama than a spy thriller, and the story centers around ““the man who would be Kingsman.” Make of that what you will.

Vaughn has ambitious plans for his growing Kingsman universe. Not only is he shooting the prequel, but he’s also developing a proper sequel to The Golden Circle that would conclude the Harry Hart-Eggsy relationship. As Collider reported, Vaughn expects to shoot that film later this year following a short break between Kingsman movies. Additionally, Vaughn is developing a Kingsman TV series and a Statesman film based on the American league of spies introduced in The Golden Circle. That’s a whole lot of Kingsman on the horizon, but you’ll have to wait until Nov. 9 for the prequel to hit theaters.

Taylor-Johnson is one of Hollywood’s best young actors, but the truth is that he could use a movie like the Kingsman prequel. He was poised to blow up after his back-to-back castings in Godzilla and Avengers: Age of Ultron, but he failed to capitalize on the moment. I thought he was great in The Wall, but that film came and went. I thought he was even better in Nocturnal Animals, as in, ‘he should’ve won the Oscar!-good,’ but again, that film fared poorly with general audiences. Meanwhile, Outlaw King was perceived as a failure for Netflix, which doesn’t release ratings… unless they’re good, and I don’t believe A Million Little Pieces has secured domestic distribution since debuting last fall in Toronto. MovieTalk fans know that I don’t love most comic book movies but Kick-Ass is one of my favorites and a large part of that is due to Taylor-Johnson, and how he just seemed to be on the same insane page as Vaughn in that movie. Here’s hoping Vaughn has found a character worthy of such a talented performer. He’s represented by WME and Brillstein Entertainment Partners.

Arterton recently lent her voice to the TV miniseries Watership Down and will soon be seen alongside Adam Sandler and Jennifer Aniston in the Netflix comedy Murder Mystery. Hollander is coming off a huge year in which he co-starred in Bohemian Rhapsody and A Private War, as well as Netflix’s Birdbox and Mowgli: Legend of the Jungle. Goode will soon be seen opposite Keira Knightley in Gavin Hood‘s whistleblower drama Official Secrets, which IFC Films acquired out of Sundance, and he has also wrapped the indie movie Medieval with Ben Foster and Michael Caine. He’s repped by CAA, which also reps Arterton along with Independent Talent Group. Hollander is repped by WME and United Agents.

No they don't. Not saying anything about their acting ability, but biggest stars?

I’ll miss Egerton as I like the Eggsy character. I’m a big fan of the series so I’ll definitely watch a third one. Depending on how they do it, a prequel could be good.

I liked Eggsy too. Wasn't overly fond of the direction the sequel went but they're fun movies.

They’re supposed to be shooting the next one with Eggsy back to back with this.

Matthew Vaughn's Kingsman prequel will now hit theaters Valentine's Day 2020, instead of this November.

Vaughn's Kingsman series is among the key film franchises that Disney will take over. The Kingsman prequel stars a different crew than the first two films, Kingsman: The Secret Service — which also opened over Valentine's Day weekend — and Kingsman: The Golden Circle, although the logline is being kept under wraps. The cast of the prequel includes Ralph Fiennes, Matthew Goode and Harris Dickinson.

Vaughn has indicated that he'll next turn his attention to a proper sequel to The Golden Circle.
