This is a bit of a surprising piece of news. So we know that filmmaker Matthew Vaughn is hard at work realizing a few different Kingsman projects right now — namely Kingsman 3 and Kingsman: The Great Game, the latter of which is a prequel set in the early 20th century during World War I. Kingsman 3 was reportedly going to wrap up the story between Eggsy (played by Taron Egerton) and Harry (played by Colin Firth), but it looks like things may have changed?

“I don’t know how hot off the press this is, and I think I’m allowed to say it, but I’m not in the next Kingsman movie,” he told the outlet. “That doesn’t mean I won’t be in Kingsman ever again. I was with Matthew [Vaughn] as little as a few days ago, we’re still very much in business together, but his next journey in that world doesn’t involve me. His idea for the new one is incredibly exciting. I’m sad that I won’t be on that journey with him but it’s not the last you’ve seen of Eggsy.”

Well, this is a bit confusing, especially with the outlet stating outright that he won’t be in “Kingsman 3.” However, this is worth clarifying, as I think it’s misleading. As it stands, this project that Egerton is talking about is not Kingsman 3, but rather Kingsman: The Great Game, which we already knew would take place around 100 years ago. However, one thing to take away from this is that Vaughn and co. may actually be tackling this prequel before Kingsman 3.

Given that we already are getting casting details for Kingsman: The Great Game, I suppose it makes sense, but it is a bit disappointing we’ll have to wait longer before we see that Eggsy and Harry story wrap up. But what do you think? Let us know your thoughts down below!
