Matthew Vaughn is looking to expand his Kingsman universe – which has so far had two movies – as well as reboot the Kick-Ass franchise which had movies in 2010 and 2013.
Vaughn – who has a host of impressive credits to his name which also include ‘Layer Cake’, ‘X-Men: First Class’ and ‘Stardust’ – spoke to Empire about his plans.
Aside from the already planned third Kingsman film, which Vaughn has said will be "the conclusion of the Harry Hart-Eggsy relationship" (played respectively in the series by Colin Firth and Taron Egerton), he is planning a spinoff which would look at the spy organisation at the turn of the 20th century.
The film would be called ‘Kingsman: The Great Game’ and he wants it to be shot back-to-back with the third Kingsman movie.
Vaughn also said a film focusing on the U.S.-based Statesmen, who were introduced in last year's ‘Kingsman: The Golden Circle’ and featured the likes of Channing Tatum, Halle Berry and Jeff Bridges, is in the works – as is an eight-hour Kingsman TV series.
So fans of the franchise should be happy anyway.
As for Kick-Ass, Vaughan wants to make a Hit-Girl solo movie which will either focus on an older Mindy (played by Chloe Grace Moretz in the first two Kick-Ass films) or be set before the original film.
Vaughn has also teased that Patience Lee, a single mother and Afghanistan war veteran who was introduced in a Kick-Ass comic earlier this year, would be the focus character of another film.
The director hinted that he is using Mark Millar's more recent comic book creations as inspiration for the two films.
Vaughn is producing through his new company Marv Studios (yes, he went there, and we love it).
Outside of these two franchises, Marv Studios will co-produce 'Rocketman', which will star Taron Egerton as Elton John.
