After being one of the surprise hits of last year, it wasn’t a big surprise when a sequel for Kingsman: The Secret Service was announced. It was based on the (arguably superior) graphic novel The Secret Service by Mark Millar and Dave Gibbons…which does not have a sequel. So it looks like Kingsman: The Golden Circle will be an original story by director Matthew Vaughn, but I’m sure Millar will have some input.
The poster above also teases a pretty big resurrection planned for the sequel. If you have seen the movie you will know exactly what it refers too. If not, what is wrong with you? Don’t you like great movies?
Kingsman: The Golden Circle hits theatres in June of 2017.
Some casting news for a couple of Tom Cruise films has been announced in the last day or so. First, the breakout star of Mission: Impossible – Rouge Nation, Rebecca Ferguson will return for Mission: Impossible 6. I thought MI5 was only ok but Ryan loved it. (Sorry, “loved loved loved” it.) Either way, I think we can agree that Ferguson was great and it will be good to have her back. MI6 is currently planning to shoot late next year for a 2017 release. Joining Cruise and Ferguson in returning will be MI5 director Christopher McQuarrie who is presumably holed up in a pub somewhere with his laptop trying to come up with impossible situations to put Cruise in.
Secondly, for some unknown reason, Universal is rebooting The Mummy with Cruise (rumored to be) starring as the human and Kingsman: The Secret Service breakout star Sofia Boutella as the Mummy. Well, that is a change from Arnold Vosloo. I’m not sure why they need to reboot The Mummy, but it sounds like it will be with more of a horror slant than the campy Branden Fraser/Stephen Sommers films. And is it really a “reboot” if it is a completely different franchise that just happens to have a mummy in it?
The Mummy is set to be released in the Spring of 2017, so it looks like Tom Cruise is going to be a busy boy next year.
We are all big fans of Kingsman here at Gabbing Geek. (And of the source material Secret Service by Mark Millar and Dave Gibbons. A recommended read.) But that doesn’t mean we don’t enjoy Honest Trailers poking some fun at the film. Watch their take after the break.
