I thought Matthew Vaughn’s Kingsman: The Secret Service was a hell of a lot of fun, and wouldn’t object to a sequel, so long as it is a big improvement on the very disappointing sequel that was made to Kick Ass. Though not really a box office smash, Kingsman still did well, and Vaughn has been talking to USA Today about how a second film could carry things on.


Vaughn on killing Firth’s character:

It was a big decision, but you have to make a decision that’s right for the movie. I’m sure George Lucas had people saying, “Are you sure we want to kill off Alec Guinness in Star Wars?

“A lot of people are very upset that Colin might not be in the sequel, but I’m coming up with ideas at the moment. If people buy tickets in America, I’ve got a feeling we’ll figure out a way for having Colin back. The opening of Kingsman 2 will have a sauna and the sauna door opens and out comes Colin. It was all a dream!”

I guess he was joking with the last comment. It seems more likely that Firth’s character will appear in flashbacks.

“The sequel will be ‘This is the modern-day gentleman spy.’ Because Harry isn’t. Harry even says, ‘There is a reason why we’ve developed weak chins.’ He said that meaning, ‘Look at us, we need to get new blood into this system,’ and that’s what Eggsy is. I joke that we’ve made the prequel to the Eggsy movie”.

I'm a huge film fan and will watch pretty much any type of film, from Martial Arts to Westerns, from Romances [though I don't really like Romcoms!]] to Historical Epics. Though I most certainly 'have a life', I tend to go to the cinema twice a week! However,ever since I was a kid, sneaking downstairs when my parents had gone to bed to watch old Universal and Hammer horror movies, I've always been especially fascinated by horror, and though I enjoy all types of horror films, those Golden Oldies with people like Boris Karloff and Christopher Lee probably remain my favourites. That's not to say I don't enjoy a bit of blood and gore every now and again though, and am also a huge fan of Italian horror, I just love the style.
