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.
