Kingsman prequel begins filming
Matthew Vaughn’s Kingsman prequel film has begun principal photography in the south-east.
Officially untitled at the time of writing, the film is a prequel reportedly set in the early 20th century and explores the origins of the Kingsman spy agency featured in Vaughn’s previous two films.
A starry cast is reportedly on board including Daniel Brühl, Charles Dance and Rhys Ifans.

Vaughn (pictured on the set of the first Kingsman) is also due to begin work on another instalment in the action franchise, which would follow on chronologically from Kingsman: The Golden Circle, released in 2017.
The director recently finished work on Rocketman, due for release in May, which features Kingsman star Taron Egerton as legendary singer/songwriter Elton John. Production took place at the famous Bray Studios, best known for its association with the iconic Hammer Film Productions.
