The Matthew Vaughn-directed third “Kingsman” film, a prequel set decades before the previous entries, has announced a February 2020 release and its official title – “The King’s Man”.
Disney revealed the news in a press release along with a short plot summary and a copy of the logo. The synopsis reads: “As a collection of history’s worst tyrants and criminal masterminds gather to plot a war to wipe out millions, one man must race against time to stop them. Discover the origins of the very first independent intelligence agency in ‘The King’s Man'”.
Previously the film had used the working title of “Kingsman: The Great Game”. The film is reportedly set during World War I and will follow the gestation of the UK gentleman spy agency. It’s expected to have more of a period drama feel than a high-energy action thriller.
Harris Dickinson, Ralph Fiennes, Daniel Bruhl, Matthew Goode, Rhys Ifans and Charles Dance all star in the movie which was originally slated for a November release.
