Taron Egerton Wants Deadpool to Meet the Kingsmen
In the world of cinematic crossover fantasies, anything is possible. What would any of us give for the Avengers to meet the Justice League, or the G.I. Joe soldiers to meet the Transformers (which might actually happen), or for every character ever created by Wes Anderson to team up and fight crime? Most of these could never happen, just due to budgetary concerns or two series being owned by different companies, but it’s great fodder for all the fanfiction websites out there. And sometimes actors give us their own input on which crossovers they’d love to see.
‘Kingsman 2’ Casts Julianne Moore as the Film’s New Villain
Before Deadpool, Fox had another R-rated comic book movie that was a surprise success on Valentine’s Day weekend. Kingsman opened in theaters on February 12 of last year to over $400 million worldwide and it didn’t take long before Kingsman 2 was greenlit at Fox. With many of the characters from the original not surviving for a sequel, director Matthew Vaughn has had to cast some new actors, and he’s already found his new villain. Julianne Moore has signed on to star in the film as the latest supervillain to terrorize Eggsy.
‘Kingsman 2’ Zeroes in on June 2017 Release Date
This year’s sleeper smash Kingsman: The Secret Service ended with as much definitive resolution as an action movie could possibly have: the bad guy’s been bested, the world saved, and our hero retires to a Swedish princess’ private chamber for some butt stuff. But because the film pulled a staggering $413.3 million haul on its comparatively modest $81 million budget, a follow-up capitalizing on the spy homage’s unlikely success was all but assured. With director Matthew Vaughn and star Taron Edgerton both on board, the production has begun to move full steam ahead by setting a date of release for June 16, 2017.
Fox Lands Sci-Fi Disaster Script ‘Ascension’ for Matthew Vaughn
Because the world contains a finite number of graphic novels written by Mark Millar, and because everyone’s gotta eat, money-in-the-bank filmmaker Matthew Vaughn is in the process of striking a deal with 20th Century Fox to direct a new project based on a fresh script that the studio purchased extra-specially for him.
Matthew Vaughn Is Writing a 'Kingsman' Sequel...Right Now
Kingsman: The Secret Service became an instant action favorite, due to the charisma of its leading characters and one seriously bonkers church sequence. It was also quite successful at the box office, which led to the inevitable rumors of a sequel — one which might include American Kingsman agents. Writer/director Matthew Vaughn has now officially confirmed that he is indeed writing a sequel…right now, as a matter of fact.
‘Kingsman 2’ Is Moving Forward at Fox, But Who Will Actually Return?
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.
‘Kingsman 2’ Could Bring Back Colin Firth For Sequel
Despite opening against the juggernaut that is 50 Shades of Grey, the wildly transgressive and well-reviewed Kingsman: The Secret Service still held its own at the box office, making enough money to ensure talk of a potential sequel. And here we are, about to talk about a Kingsman 2 and whether or nor Colin Firth will reprise his role as the dashing and deadly genleman spy, Harry Hart. Massive spoilers lurk below.
Weekend Box Office Report: '50 Shades of Grey' Dominates
After months of bad jokes and eye-rolling from the internet hive mind, 50 Shades of Grey has arrived and it’s just as huge as everyone predicted. Any movie adaptation of a book that sold hundreds of millions of copies is going to open big, even if that book/movie in question is a BDSM quasi-romantic drama that has as many fervent detractors as it does admirers. But it was a solid week at the box office overall, with the other new release, Kingsman: The Secret Service, holding its own against a movie that may very well be one of the biggest releases of the year.
