Jeff Bridges Joins “Kingsman” Sequel

Oscar winner Jeff Bridges has used his Twitter account to confirm that he will join the cast of the upcoming sequel “Kingsman: The Golden Circle” at 20th Century Fox.

Bridges will reunite with his “The Big Lebowski” and “Seventh Son” co-star Julianne Moore on the Matthew Vaughn-directed film which is a follow-up to last year’s smash hit spy comedy/thriller.

Taron Egerton returns as Eggsy with Mark Strong reprising the role of Merlin. They’re joined by Halle Berry as the head of the CIA, Moore as the villain, Pedro Pascal as an agent named Jack Daniels, Channing Tatum, Edward Holcroft and even Sir Elton John.

The new film has Eggsy headed to the United States where he’ll meet his match in a ‘swaggering, sharpshooting cowboy’. The film, currently in production, is targeting a June 16th 2017 release.
