Taron Egerton Discusses KINGSMAN 2 and KINGSMAN 3
Kingsman and Eddie the Eagle star Taron Egerton recently met with Den of Geek and discussed the upcoming Kingsman 2. In the first Kingsman, Egerton played Eggsy. Eggsy was a young delinquent who enrolls in a prestigious spy program and saved the world by defeating an evil billionaire played by Samuel L. Jackson. Egerton’s career has taken off since the success of the first Kingsman. He was one of the three finalists for the role of Han Solo until the role went to Alden Enhrenrich. At first, Egerton discussed his role in Universal Pictures’ Sing and the difference between on and off camera performances.Eventually he moved on to the Kingsman franchise.
Den of Geek asked Egerton if Mark Millar, the creator of the Kingsman comics, had a major role in the upcoming Kingsman 2. Egerton admitted that Millar was a consultant for the film, but the series is very much director Matthew Vaughn’s franchise. Taron Egerton admitted that a Kingsman 3 is a possibility, and will likely depend on the success on the second film in the franchise. Egerton also briefly discussed Elton John’s role in the upcoming film. In Egerton and Vaughn’s opinion, Elton John fit the Kingsman world. Egerton also admitted that a deleted scene from the first film will be in the second movie.
Kingsman: The Golden Circle will arrive in theaters on October 6th 2017. Taron Egerton will return as Eggsy. Colin Firth will return as Harry Hart, Eggsy’s mentor who was presumably killed in the first movie. Julianne Moore will be playing the film’s antagonist, taking over Samuel L. Jackson’s role in the first movie. Mark Strong and Sophie Cookson return in the sequel as Merlin and Roxy respectively. New additions to the franchise include Channing Tatum, Pedro Pascal, Halle Berry, Jeff Bridges, and the aforementioned Elton John. Kingsman: The Golden Circle will come out on the same Friday as Blade Runner 2049.
