In Kingsman: The Secret Service, Matthew Vaughn’s spy flick, Colin Firth’s Harry Hart meets his maker. Or so it seems. In a sequence meant to depict the character’s demise, there’s a wide shot where we seemingly see Samuel L. Jackson’s Valentine put a bullet in Hart’s head. We see his body crumple to the ground. But there’s never a close up, and there’s never a funeral. 

According to the film’s director, this was done by design because they maaaaay want to bring him back- since audiences seem to be having such fun seeing the actor reinvent himself as a bad ass action star. “A lot of people are very upset that Colin might not be in the sequel but I’m coming up with ideas at the moment. If people buy tickets in America, I’ve got a feeling we’ll figure out a way for having Colin back.”

As for who, or what, the sequel would focus on? Eggsy (Taron Egerton), of course. “The sequel will be ‘This is the modern-day gentleman spy.’ Because Harry isn’t. Harry even says, ‘There is a reason why we’ve developed weak chins.’ He said that meaning, ‘Look at us, we need to get new blood into this system,’ and that’s what Eggsy is. I joke that we’ve made the prequel to the Eggsy movie.”

If it’s going to take “people buying tickets” to get a sequel off the ground, it looks like they’re well on their way then. Kingsman: The Secret Service has pulled in north of $85 million in the four days since its release.
