A slight spoiler for Kingsman: The Secret Service lies ahead

Matthew Vaughn is currently hard at work on the sequel to Kingsman: The Secret Service, that will see Taron Egerton reprise the role of Eggsy for the new movie.

Chatting in the new issue of Empire magazine, Vaughn has offered up some new details of the sequel too, not least its title.

Kingsman 2 is now known as Kingsman: The Golden Circle, and alongside Egerton in the cast are Julianne Moore and Halle Berry this time around. Vaughn’s admitted that getting the script in place for the sequel has been the hardest thing he’s done to date, and he also said that “I didn’t know if I wanted to direct this or not. I was worried about the villain. Spy films are only as good as their villains. Then one morning I woke up with the whole storyline in place, and a new villain plot”.

With regards following one of the most popular moments of the original, Vaughn also added that “you try not to read what people want, but they do want another church sequence. I have no reason for another massacre to happen. But I have other sequences you’ve never seen before”.

Kingsman: The Golden Circle is due for release in June 2017.
