A century before Eggsy was recruited by Harry Hart for the Kingsman, the spy agency was established during the First World War. The King’s Man stars Ralph Fiennes as TE Lawrence with Harris Dickson as new recruit Conrad.
The film’s official synopsis reads: “As a collection of history’s worst tyrants and criminal masterminds gather to plot a war to wipe out millions, one man must race against time to stop them.
“Discover the origins of the very first independent intelligence agency in The King’s Man, directed by Matthew Vaughn, coming to cinemas February 2020.”
The King’s Man’s all-star cast includes Liam Neeson as Field Marshall Kitchener, Rhys Ifans as Rasputin, Gemma Arterton as Mata Hari and Charles Dance as Field Marshall Haig.
While Tom Hollander plays three monarchs in King George V, Kaiser Wilhelm II, Tsar Nicholas II – which makes sense since they were all related.
And Stanley Tucci is playing Merlin, a role he’s bizarrely reprising having last played the wizard in Transformers: The Last Knight,
The film also features Daniel Brühl, Aaron Taylor-Johnson, Matthew Goode and Djimon Hounsou.
TARON EGERTON WANTS TO BE THE NEXT JAMES BOND
Meanwhile, Kingsman 3, which will be a direct sequel to Kingsman: The Golden Circle, will also be directed by Matthew Vaughn.
The director told Digital Spy: “We’ve got to finish off the Eggsy and Harry relationship
“The final chapter of their relationship needs to be told, which we’ve got ready to do, and I’m hoping to shoot that later this year or the beginning of next year.”
“But this Kingsman (prequel) has been pushed back to February 14th for coming out, and so, yeah, as soon as that’s done, we’re looking forward to…”
He added: “It’s funny. As Taron was saying, he’s looking forward to becoming Eggsy again, because emotionally it’s a lot less draining.”
Production on Kingsman 3 is expected to begin in late 2019 or early 2020.
Meanwhile, Vaughn hopes to make a spin-off on the Statesman, the American spy agency from Kingsman: The Golden Circle.
Channing Tatum, Jeff Bridges and Halle Berry are all expected to reprise their roles.
The King’s Man is released in UK cinemas in February 2020.
