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 Iâ€™m coming up with ideas at the moment. If people buy tickets in America, Iâ€™ve got a feeling weâ€™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 â€˜This is the modern-day gentleman spy.â€™ Because Harry isnâ€™t. Harry even says, â€˜There is a reason why weâ€™ve developed weak chins.â€™ He said that meaning, â€˜Look at us, we need to get new blood into this system,â€™ and thatâ€™s what Eggsy is. I joke that weâ€™ve made the prequel to the Eggsy movie.â€
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.
