Despite an impressive cast made up of names like Colin Firth, Michael Caine, and Samuel L. Jackson, no one expected big things from Kingsman: The Secret Service earlier this year. However, the movie exceeded expectations thanks to positive reviews and a haul of over $400 million worldwide.
It should come as no surprise then that Fox wants to get a sequel moving, and a new report reveals that they’re hoping to begin production in April 2016. The only problem with that right now is the fact that Taron Egerton will be starting work on Lionsgate’s Robin: Hood Origins in February, leading to a potential clash. Don’t fret about the talented Welsh actor being replaced, however, as it’s thought that both studios will be able to work around his schedule.

Matthew Vaughn is currently writing a sequel to the movie based on a comic book by Mark Millar and Dave Gibbons, and he’s previously revealed that it will feature an American version of Kingsman. Whether Vaughn plans on returning to direct this Kingsman sequel is unclear as of right now, but Millar has strongly hinted in recent social media posts that he will. After all, Kick-Ass 2 didn’t fare too well without Vaughn at the helm, so you have to believe Fox want him back in the director’s chair for this one.
