Matthew Vaughn, the director of both recent Kingsman films and the 2010 Kick-Ass movie, is planning to add to his list of movies based on Mark Millar’s comics.
Vaughn recently announced to Empire his plans for a third Kingsman film to finish the trilogy and said he is also developing an early 1900s period piece titled Kingsman: The Great Game that may serve as an origin story for the establishment of the Kingsman. Both of these films are planned to be shot back-to-back and will likely release within a year of one another. A Kingsman show is also in the works as well as a Statesman spinoff, following the American version of the Kingsman shown in Kingsman: The Golden Circle.
The first Kingsman film starred Taron Egerton, Colin Firth, and Mark Strong as agents working to thwart Samuel L. Jackson’s villain. In the sequel, we’re introduced to the US’s Statesman which includes Channing Tatum, Halle Berry, and Jeff Bridges. The villain for the sequel is played by Julianne Moore.
The other Mark Millar property Vaughn is working on is a reboot of the Kick-Ass franchise. Vaughn directed the 2010 R-rated film which did alright critically. A Kick-Ass series (possibly following Patience Lee) and a Hit Girl solo film is being discussed. He hinted that the films may be more direct adaptations of Millar’s comics, telling Empire to “look for clues.”
Vaughn produces films as well, in his recently established Marv Studios, which recently made Eddie the Eagle in 2016. Vaughn also directed and wrote X-Men: First Class and helped with the story for X-Men: Days of Future Past.
