KINGSMAN 3: Matthew Vaughn Shares Update On Threequel Plans And How Much Of The Script Is Written

It's been a while since we last heard of plans for a third Kingsman movie, but filmmaker Matthew Vaughn has now shared an update on where things stand with the script and why the project is a priority...

Based on Mark Millar and Dave Gibbon's Kingsman: The Secret Service, the 2015 movie of the same name was a hit and made a star out of Taron Egerton. That was followed by a sequel, The Golden Circle, in 2017, and we got a prequel - The King's Man - back in 2021 after several COVID-related delays.

A third instalment of the main franchise has been in the works for years now, and we've known for a while that it will close the book on the stories of Eggsy and Harry Hart. 

Talking to Collider about his new movie, Argylle, filmmaker Matthew Vaughn acknowledged that the gap between the second and third instalments has been perhaps a little too lengthy (seven years and counting) and made it clear he wants to get Kingsman 3 made as quickly as possible. 

"So Kingsman 3, we've got to get on with before Colin [Firth] is way too old and dare I say it, Taron's [Egerton] getting on as well," Vaughn explained. "So, Kingsman 3 is definitely the conclusion of their relationship. Act one is being written. Act three is being written. Act Two needs some work, right? And so we know how it ends, we know how it begins."

That's a promising start and Vaughn would go on to confirm that he owns the rights to the Kingsman franchise, meaning if 20th Century Studios (formerly Fox) declines to make the threequel, he can shop it around elsewhere. 

While the first two movies were successful, The King's Man was a critical and commercial disappointment, earning a mere $126 million worldwide. That alone could make a third chapter a hard sell. 

Last year, Vaughn talked about his plans to continue expanding the Kingsman franchise both on the big and small screens. "I mean, we've written - we call it Kingsman: The Traitor King - which is about the rise of Hitler and how the English aristocracy helped Hitler come to power," he teased. "So again, we think it's a piece of history that should be told properly."

"And I love the idea of doing a Kingsman set in the 60s; I just think that would be fun and just different," Vaughn added. "But the most important thing we need to do before, I joked, is get on with Kingsman 3; the idea is that I don't want Taron being Arthur at the end of the table and Collin being a portrait."

Kingsman 3 doesn't currently have a confirmed release date.

So.....is a third one coming or not? So you have no concrete evidence if the answer is yes or no. This equels..... NOTHING!

Cool though I feel like the last one had a decent ending on its own for the Eggsy & Harry duo but oh well…

If or when it happens , I hope it ends the trilogy well and is atleast an improvement over The Golden Circle which i didn’t care much for personally.

@TheVisionary25 - I think I like the golden circle a bit more than The Kings Man. The vibe I got from the trailer of The Kings Man, vs. what the movie actually was I think is what dissapointed me about it. It came off as much more of a war film than it turned out to be.

I'm still down for more in this world though. I like how experimental Vaughn gets with his camera work and action scenes.

@RedFury - that’s fair enough

I liked the period setting and the father & son story we got in that aswell.

The action scenes were well done also.

@TheVisionary25 - the period setting was definitely one of the high points. I've always found it fun seeing a spin on history. It reminds me of what Tarantino did with Inglorious Bastards.

The action scenes were certainly great thats for sure. That fight with Rasputin was really fun! Mixing in the Russian dance style with combat felt very Kingsman.

I guess I'm just such a war film fan that I hoped it took place mainly on the battlefield. But that's my expectations just getting in the way.

@RedFury - I agree

That Rasputin fight was great and I also liked the sword fight with “ The Shepherd” at the end aswell.

Killing Roxy unceremoniously in the beginning of the second one was a shitty decision.

@Urubrodi - Totaly agree and half hoping they bring her back TBH as ways in a world like that they theoreticaly could considering they managed to find a way to bring Harry back when we saw him shot in the head whereas Roxy we never actualy saw her die.
