Could Matthew Vaughn break his streak and actually follow one of his films with a sequel?
It seems like that could happen, according to an interview he did with Yahoo on Thursday. Vaughn told the site that he is working on a script for a sequel to his hit spy film, Kingsman: The Secret Service, with directing being a possibility.
“I’m writing it next door at the moment. If I think I can get the script good enough, then we are making it,” he said. “We are doing our damndest to make that happen.”
Kingsman was a bonafide hit to the tune of $403 million worldwide and a sequel was assumed once the movie went over so well with audiences. The first film starred Colin Firth, Samuel L. Jackson, Mark Strong, Michael Caine, and introduced Taron Edgerton to the public and was a homage to the spy movies of the 70s and 80s.
Vaughn has been notorious about coming back to do a sequel as he left Kick-Ass to do X-Men: First Class and then left that to do Kingsman. It’ll be interesting to see if he has time since he has been in demand for a few years now with rumors circulating that he was one of the top choices by Disney to direct Star Wars: Episode VII before J.J. Abrams came onboard.
He also has Flash Gordon that he is attached to do so we will have to see if he can make time for Kingsman, and we hope so since it may be the most Matthew Vaughn film yet (and that was a good thing).
