Matthew Vaughn’s spy caper Kingsman: The Secret Service may not even be in cinemas here in North America, but that hasn’t stopped fans from raising the question of a potential sequel to the film’s creative team.
In fact, Red Carpet News TV recently spoke with Mark Millar and Dave Gibbons — creators of the comic book upon which the film is based — during a premiere event in the States, where the former stated quiet simply “If people want more, we will do more.” You can check out the snippet in full via the video embedded above, where Gibbons adds that the finale of The Secret Service would act as the perfect jumping off point for a potential follow-up.
Whether this second installment is given the green light while no doubt hinge on Kingsman: The Secret Service‘s performance in the United States. Whatever the outcome, Vaughn’s balls-to-the-walls genre mash-up has already gotten off to a flyer in the UK, pulling in a relatively impressive $7 million in its opening weekend. Couple this with the film’s ensemble cast and 20th Century Fox could well carve out a franchise based on the eclectic spy, Eggsy, if the demand exists, as Millar alluded to earlier.
Having already garnered critical acclaim following its debut in the United Kingdom, Kingsman: The Secret Service is slated for a release in North America on Friday, February 13.
Based upon the acclaimed comic book and directed by Matthew Vaughn (Kick Ass, X-Men First Class), Kingsman: The Secret Service tells the story of a super-secret spy organization that recruits an unrefined but promising street kid into the agency’s ultra-competitive training program just as a global threat emerges from a twisted tech genius. Starring Colin Firth, Samuel L. Jackson, Mark Strong, Taron Egerton, and Michael Caine.
