Kingsman prequel gets new title, teaser art and release date!
After months of development, filming and fan anticipation, 20th Century Fox has revealed that the title for its upcoming Kingsman prequel is officially titled The King’s Man, while also debuting a teaser poster and announcing that the film’s release has been moved to February 2020!
Series writer/director Matthew Vaughn (X-Men: First Class) announced back in June that the third entry in the franchise, entitled The King’s Man, would take place in the early 1900s and would follow the roots of the spy agency that Taron Egerton’s Eggsy would eventually become one of the remaining agents for and showing us the man who would be Kingsman. Vaughn also announced that unlike the previous two films, this one will be more of a period drama rather than a spy thriller.
The official’s plot reads: “As a collection of history’s worst tyrants and criminal masterminds gather to plot a war to wipe out millions, one man must race against time to stop them. As a collection of history’s worst tyrants and criminal masterminds gather to plot a war to wipe out millions, one man must race against time to stop them.”
The film has attracted an all-star cast, with Trust‘s Harris Dickinson set for the lead role of Conrad, a cocky young hero eager to serve his country and continue his fight from World War I, and The Grand Budapest Hotel‘s Ralph Fiennes set to co-star alongside Kick-Ass‘ Aaron Taylor-Johnson, Hansel & Gretel: Witch Hunters‘ Gemma Arterton, Bohemian Rhapsody‘s Tom Hollander, The Alienist‘s Daniel Bruhl, Game of Thrones‘ Charles Dance, Taken‘s Liam Neeson, A Discovery of Witches‘ Matthew Goode, Shazam!‘s Djimon Hounsou, The Silence‘s Stanley Tucci and The Amazing Spider-Man‘s Rhys Ifans.
The prequel to the hit action franchise comes as Vaughn continues to expand the universe, based on the graphic novel series by Mark Millar and Dave Gibbons, past the two movies released thus far, including an eight-episode series, a true sequel to the last entry The Golden Circle that will wrap up the Harry Hart (Colin Firth)-Eggsy relationship and a spin-off focusing on the agency introduced in the last film, Statesman, with Channing Tatum (Logan Lucky), Halle Berry (John Wick 3: Parabellum) and Jeff Bridges (Bad Times at the El Royale) all set to reprise their roles from the previous film.
