Colin Firth in tweede Kingsman The Secret Service

Colin Firth in tweede Kingsman: The Secret Service

Matthew Vaughns Kingsman The Secret Service was dit jaar een onverwacht succes. De verfilming van de comic van Mark Millar had een rol voor Colin Firth. Ondanks dat hij vroegtijdig het loodje legde, moet hij terugkeren in de sequel. Millar liet in een interview weten:

“That’s the conversation everyone’s having right now, because part of what made that movie work is Colin. Colin’s fantastic, it was a two-hander, that film. You also want to have the integrity of the story, so if you are bringing him back, it has to make sense. That’s where it is at at the moment. Beats of the story have been done. [Screenplay co-writers] Matthew [Vaughn] and Jane [Goldman] are working on it at the moment. Some things have to be worked out, some decisions have still to be made and everything, so it’s all fairly amorphous, but all going well.”

Er zijn veel gesprekken over Colin. Millar vervolgde:

“It’s funny because there’s a lot of conversations like that, like should he have an evil brother, Colin with a mustache? Or is he a ghost or whatever? The guys have a plan. I can’t spoil it just now because the final decision is still to be made. It’ll be good. Vaughan’s funny. He’s done Layer Cake, Stardust, Kick-Ass, X-Men: First Class, and Kingsman. Even Spielberg had made 1941 by his third movie, so I trust him. He’s done five good movies.”
