An exciting update has emerged for Kingsman fans. As per Mathew Vaughn, a sequel to The King’s Man film is in the pipeline.
In a recent interview with Collider during New York Comic Con, Vaughn mentioned that they are actively working on a sequel to The King’s Man. He revealed that the film, titled The Traitor King, is already in the scripting stage.
The King’s Man(2021) offered a fresh take on Matthew Vaughn’s spy franchise. It delved into the origins of the secret organization responsible for protecting the world and explored the profound father-son relationship that laid the foundation for this agency’s inception.
What The King’s Man Sequel Will Be About
This sequel will build on the post-credits scene from The King’s Man, which introduced David Kross as Adolf Hitler.
Vaughn told the outlet, “The next one it’s it is about the rise of Hitler, and how Hitler did come to power and basically was supported by the English aristocracy.”
He continued, “So I was like, ‘well that’s interesting’ and how the world was worrying so much about Communism, that Fascism rose up. And I look at the world at the moment, everyone getting distracted and worrying about this [and that] and if you worry too much about [this] bad things can happen here. So it is a story that I think needs to be recalled. We’re calling it The Traitor King.”
The King’s Man Was Originally Conceived As A TV Series
Vaughn also revealed during the interview that The King’s Man was initially conceived as a television series rather than a film.
“The King’s Man was originally meant to be a TV series and I got persuaded to make it as a film. What we wanted to do was something like ‘The Crown’ but with espionage and a bit of a Kingsman hit going through all of the decades.”
The King’s Man (2021) is set during World War I and boasts a notable cast, including Ralph Fiennes, Gemma Arterton, Rhys Ifans, Matthew Goode, Djimon Hounsou, Daniel Brühl, and Charles Dance.
While the sequel to The King’s Man is currently in development, there are no details available regarding its cast or release window. However, it is certain that the sequel will not come to fruition until the actors’ strike ends.
