Taron Egerton readies for Kingsman 2
Taron Egerton is preparing for his role in Kingsman 2, which is currently in very early pre-production at a UK studio with principal photography set to begin in the spring.
The feature, based on the comic book The Secret Service by Mark Millar and Dave Gibbons, is once again written by Jane Goldman and Matthew Vaughn, although it is not yet confirmed whether the latter will return to the director’s chair this time around.
The first film starred Egerton along with Colin Firth, Samuel L. Jackson, Mark Strong and Michael Caine, and went on to gross well over $414m worldwide.
