The Kingsman franchise is about to expand with a further seven movies planned
Although the prequel to the ‘Kingsman‘ franchise has been delayed until 2021 and the plan to end the Eggsy/ Harry Hart trilogy with a third film, you could be mistaken for thinking that the franchise was starting to wind down. Not so! The CEO of the Marv Group, the company behind the movies, Zygi Kamasa has revealed that the co-writer and director of the films, Matthew Vaughn is planning a further SEVEN movies in the series. Also on the horizon is a Kingsman TV show to go alongside the ‘two or three other franchises that are being developed alongside the Kingsman world’. Although no further details have been mentioned as of yet, it certainly raises interest to find the franchise is planning such a range of spin-offs from the main franchise.
The first two films ‘Kingsman: The Secret Service‘ and ‘Kingsman: The Golden Circle‘ have grossed $825.2million. Although the first film is, to my mind anyway, the better of the two, probably due to having Samuel L. Jackson as the villain, the second film opened the ‘Kingsman‘ world up quite a bit more with the addition of ‘Statesman’, the American counterpart of the British outfit. Perhaps one of the spin-offs being considered would follow the ‘Statesman’ on their espionage adventures around the globe. I’d love to see Halle Berry, and Channing Tatum return and lead the franchise in this direction. It would be great if Jeff Bridges can beat his current illness diagnosis and appear once more as ‘Champ’ in the spin-off. Sadly though, Sophie Cookson as Roxy and Pedro Pascal as Jack Daniels/ Agent Whiskey cannot appear due to being killed off in the second film.
The prequel movie, entitled ‘The King’s Man‘ will now open in February of next year, The film stars Ralph Fiennes, Gemma Arterton, Daniel Bruhl, Aaron Taylor-Johnson, Djimon Hounsou, Matthew Goode, Rhys Ifans, Charles Dance, and Stanley Tucci and sees the formation of the organization at the turn of the twentieth century. Matthew Vaughn once again directs and co-writes, this time with Karl Gajdusek, replacing regular co-writer Jane Goldman.
