Los Angeles, Jan 29 (IANS) Actor Taron Egerton says “Kingsman: The Secret Service 2” would feature an “international story,” unlike the first one which was shot entirely in Britain.
While promoting his new film “Eddie the Eagle” with actor Hugh Jackman, Egerton shared a little bit about the “Kingsman” sequel.
He said that the movie would start filming in summer and it would introduce a new villain that would face off against actor Samuel L. Jackson’s character. He also added that the script was ready.
“With ‘Kingsman’, we’re shooting in the summer at present. There’s a script, it’s brilliant,” Egerton said.
He also said that the sequel would go international and his character would probably embark on a globe-trotting adventure.
“Obviously there’s only so much I can say but what I can say is that we shot (the first) one all in the U.K., that won’t be the case with the next one.
“It’s a far more international story, we’re going to some incredible places, and we have a villain to rival Samuel L. Jackson – this new one is so brilliantly written I wish I could play it. It’s amazing,” he said.
Egerton and Jackson will reprise their roles as Gary “Eggsy” Unwin and Valentine respectively.
There is no detail yet on whether Colin Firth will be back to reprise his role as Harry Hart.
Directed by Matthew Vaugn, “Kingsman 2” will release in North America next year.
