First of all, let’s not take this news too seriously — Matthew Vaughn has been known to set his sights on projects only to abandon them when he loses interest, and he’s also never directed a sequel to one of his own films before. That may change soon, as Vaughn is currently writing a Kingsman sequel, which he’d also like to direct. And since he’s got sequels on the brain, he’s also revealed some other potential plans. The keyword here being “potential.”

A few months ago, Matthew Vaughn’s Kingsman: The Secret Service seemed like a risky move, a film that seemed to destined to get taken down by the hype juggernaut that was 50 Shades of Grey. $400 million later, it was one of the year’s biggest surprise hits. So yeah, of course a Kingsman 2 is now in the works.

Matthew Vaughn has twice departed a franchise after directing the first installment: first, there was Kick-Ass, which was followed up by a horribly underwhelming (to say the least) sequel. Then there was X-Men: First Class, in which Vaughn reinvigorated the franchise with a fantastic origin story, followed by Bryan Singer’s triumphant return with Days of Future Past. But if Vaughn had stuck around for the X-Men sequel, things might have been a little bit different.
