Spy movies. You can never get enough of them! Good or bad, it is always a popular movie genre that is filled with action, plot twists, and maybe a little of romance. And 2015’s “Kingsman: The Secret Service” turned out to be one of the most satisfying spy movies in recent years.
The good news is that the sequel‘s plot details have been revealed!
The movie will star Taron Egerton, the street kid turned elite government spy, Gary “Eggsy” Unwin, while Matthew Vaughn will reprise his role as director and co-writer for the upcoming sequel.
According to Empire Magazine, the official synopsis for Kingsman 2 reads:
“One of the pieces of artwork shows that the Kingsman headquarters in England winds up being destroyed; that may be the event that sets in motion Golden Circle‘s ‘international story’. Eggsy and Merlin soon make their way over to the U.S. to work with the Statesmen: a U.S.-based secret organization (with headquarters that are disguised as a whiskey distillery), led by a woman named Ginger (played by Halle Berry) and a ‘swaggering, sharpshooting cowboy’ known as Jack (yet to be cast).”
Matthew also mentioned that he was worried about coming back to write the sequel until he has figured out the “villain’s plot” because “Spy films are only as good as their villains.” Fans can expect a skiing action sequence, robotic dogs, and what Matthew describes as a fight featuring “a massive f***ing frankfurter” in the sequel.
ComicBookMovie.com revealed the concept art for the movie as well, and it includes the image of Julianne Moore‘s (Poppy) villain lair (Poppyland).
Kingsman is based on “The Secret Service”, a comic book series created by Mark Millar and Dave Gibbons. It is considered Matthew’s most successful movie to date as it received impressive reviews and grossed around US$401 million worldwide.
The sequel, “Kingsman: The Golden Circle” is set to be released on 16th June 2017.
