I have STILL not seen Matthew Vaughn’s said to be excellent comic book adaptation, Kingsman: The Secret Service, but I do intend to change that soon.
The film did wonders at the box office, and has so far grossed over $400 million worldwide, so a sequel was inevitable, but now The Wrap confirms that a sequel is in development.
Per The Wrap:
A sequel to the surprise blockbuster “Kingsman: The Secret Service” is in the works at Fox.
There was no announcement by the studio or a timetable, but there will be a followup to the R-rated comic book adaptation directed by Matthew Vaughn and starring Colin Firth, individuals with knowledge of the project told TheWrap.
It became clear Fox had a hit on its hands when it opened to $41 million against “Fifty Shades of Grey” over the Presidents Day holiday weekend in the U.S.
Samuel Jackson, Michael Caine and Taron Egerton co-starred in “Kingsman,” which had an $80 million production budget. Vaughn also co-wrote with Jane Goldman and produced the film, which was based on the comic book “The Secret Service” created by Mark Millar and Dave Gibbons.
It has not yet been confirmed if Vaughn will return to direct, or if any of the cast will return.
