Taron Egerton makes a promising point about the production of Kingsman 3, which will conclude the trio of films centered on Eggsy and Merlin.
Taron Egerton says the production on Kingman 3 could start soon. Egerton starred in the first two films of the irreverent action/spy franchise, Kingsman: The Secret Service and Kingsman: The Golden Circle as Gary “Eggsy” Unwin. Not to be confused with the recent prequel The king’s manin which Eggsy did not appear. The king’s man followed the formation of The Kingsmen’s agency by Ralph Fiennes’ Duke Orlando Oxford amidst the turmoil of World War I, decades before the events of the other films set in the present day.
The upcoming sequel is called Kingsman: blue blood and will see Matthew Vaughn continue to serve as the show’s director and co-writer as he has on all previous films. Blue blood was supposed to be shot back-to-back with the prequel, but as with many productions over the past few years, that plan has been upended by the COVID pandemic. The story is little known for now, though it will continue to follow the tumultuous relationship of blue collar worker Eggsy and his more suitable mentor Harry Hart aka Merlin (Colin Firth). While neither The golden circle neither The king’s man were particularly successful in the eyes of critics, it didn’t stop the franchise from making money, and might not even hinder Vaughn’s plans to do at least 7 more movies or TV shows in the Kingsman universe.
Egerton recently spoke about the series in an interview for the Sirius XM show. The Jess Cagle Podcast with Julia Cunningham. In the interview, both hosts say they are big fans of the franchise and ask Egerton if he has any updates on his upcoming appearance in the franchise and the state of Kingman 3. Egerton is deferential, saying: “I’m a humble pawn in the equation,“but confirming this,”there is a scenario.His full quote on the project is below:
“I understand that we are going to shoot the third episode of my saga, I believe, next year. But you know, don’t listen to what I say because I don’t really know. You know, these are decisions of adults.”
While he could probably keep Mom on the project for contractual reasons, it’s also very likely that he won’t know more information beyond that. Actors are often kept in the dark about such decisions until movies are in the final stages of pre-production, which is precisely why so many become producers. As Egerton said, so they can be aware and have more of a say in the “adult decisions.“Although he has headlined some major movies, he has yet to take on the role of producer, although he will be the executive producer of the next Apple show. Black birdin which he will also star alongside Ray Liotta in one of his final roles.
For fans of the Kingsman movies, while there isn’t much new information regarding Blue blood, the update gives hope. Vaughn is deeply invested in the franchise at this point and really seems to want there to be a proper send off for the Eggsy/Harry relationship. One way or another, it will happen. Just because the trilogy ends doesn’t necessarily preclude Eggsy’s character from returning in future films. While Egerton hasn’t appeared in a movie since playing Elton John in 2019 Rocketmanbetween potentially playing the next Wolverine in the MCU upon the release of Kingman 3the next few years could be important for the actor’s growing notoriety.
