Channing Tatum joins the Kingsman: The Golden Circle cast
We’ve gotten a few big surprises the last week for 20th Century Fox’s Kingsman: The Golden Circle. First up was star Taron Egerton revealing the title and teasing that Colin Firth’s Harry Hart will return. Then we got word that Pedro Pascal was joining The Golden Circle cast, and then the even bigger surprise: Elton John might be on board as well. Now, Channing Tatum has revealed that he, too, has joined The Golden Circle cast with the below tweet! It is unknown which character he is playing at this point.

Taron Egerton returns as Eggsy with Mark Strong reprising the role of Merlin. Halle Berry is appearing as the head of the CIA, Pascal as a character conveniently named “Jack Daniels,” and Julianne Moore is in talks to play the film’s central villain. Edward Holcroft is also set to appear in the film, though whether he will reprise as his character from the first is unclear.
Matthew Vaughn returns to write and direct the film, which sees Eggsy heading to the United States where he’ll meet his match in a “swaggering, sharpshooting cowboy.”
Filming is schedule to start in May in London and 20th Century Fox has set a June 16, 2017 release date.
