Los Angeles, Oct 22 (IANS) 20th Century Fox has announced that “Kingsman: The Secret Service 2” will arrive in North America on June 16, 2017.
On the aforementioned date, the sequel to “Kingsman: The Secret Service” will compete against animated movie “Cars 3”, reports aceshowbiz.com.
It was previously revealed that actor Taron Egerton had a scheduling issue because he had to shoot “Robin Hood: Origins” in February.
Lionsgate compromised its plan and decided to start filming the Robin Hood reboot after “Kingsman 2” wraps production.
Egerton is the only confirmed cast member so far. Meanwhile, Colin Firth is rumoured to reprise his role as agent Harry Hart despite the fact that the character was killed at the end of the first film.
Matthew Vaughn is currently writing the screenplay of the “Kingsman” sequel, which he previously revealed would feature an American version of the British Kingsman agency.
Comic book creator Mark Millar has strongly suggested that Vaughn will also return as director, but it has yet to be confirmed.
