With over $400 million in worldwide box-office and quite strong reviews, the question was not if Matthew Vaughn’s spy spoof film “Kingsman: The Secret Service” would get a sequel, but rather when.
Murmurs began back in April that 20th Century Fox was already at work on it, and today Vaughn himself has confirmed to Yahoo UK that it is happening. In fact he may do something he has never done before – direct a sequel to one of his own films:
“Well, the good news is that I’m writing it next door at the moment. If I think I can get the script good enough, then we are making it. We are doing our damndest to make that happen. I’m in love with these characters and I want to work with them again so I’ll probably be breaking the rule of me tending not to make sequels.”
Vaughn is currently busy at work coming up with a reboot of the “Flash Gordon” franchise for Fox, but there’s no guarantee he will stay on it at this point and he has dropped out of directing projects he’s developed before.
