Just as the prequel spinoff for the popular Kingsman franchise is about to hit theaters, it seems that production is already preparing for the upcoming third entry in the franchise. Taron Egerton‘s Eggsy will finally make his return as it’s currently eyeing a September production start. The sequel will build upon the previous two entries, Kingsman: Secret Service and The Golden Circle. We’ve known the film has been in the works for some time, but it’s our first update on the new entry.
The news came from ComicBook.com, which got a chance to sit down with producer and director Matthew Vaughn, who confirmed the production start while promoting The King’s Man. Unlike the previous entries, this film takes place far in the past and explores the beginnings of this important British spy organization during the first World War. It’ll be interesting to see if the third entry might pick up some potential plot points set up in this prequel.
The third entry has a lot to live up to, as The Golden Circle upped the ante of craziness and action. It’ll be interesting to see how they continue the storyline and what the future has in store for Eggsy. Perhaps he’ll grow into a mentor role as well to teach a new generation about the Kingsman, or we explore international agencies.
