Matthew Vaughn is one of hottest directors putting out films right now. He has a vision and style that serve to breathe fresh air into modern cinema– especially movies adapted from comic books.
[dropcap size=small]K[/dropcap]ick-Ass was a bold risk, and proved to be a game changer for comic book movies. His work on X-Men: First Class reinvigorated the X-Men franchise, propelling it back up to being a comic movie powerhouse. Now, Kingsmen: The Secret Service is receiving rave reviews from fans and critics alike.
In a recent interview with JoBlo.com, Vaughn revealed some intriguing details about some possible upcoming projects.
When asked about Kick-Ass 3, Vaughn revealed:
“Do you know what’s going to be next if I do it… we’ve finished plotting it. What we have to do is, we’ve got to do the FIRST CLASS to the KICK-ASS world. We lost a few fans on Kick-Ass 2. It wasn’t as loved as one would’ve hoped. So we have this idea for a Hit Girl prequel. It’s a really strong, really simple prequel where I think we can regain the love and the passion. If that happens, I’m pretty sure I can persuade Aaron and Chloe to come back and finish the story of Kick-Ass with Kick-Ass 3. “
“Mark and I have already plotted Hit Girl. We have to get the script done next. It’s so far out there, you have no idea.”
Would he be willing to direct KICK-ASS 3?
“No, I wouldn’t direct. We spoke about it to Gareth Evans (The Raid) a couple of years ago. I’d get someone like that, a really bold, clever director. Most of it is set in the far east.
What about a Kingsman 2?
“I’d love to do a sequel, but it’s really up to the public isn’t it? We’ve got some really bold ideas. If you think about it, this is the origin story of Eggsy. Eggsy is now the true modern gentleman spy. So there’s a journey we want to put him on. I love the idea of there being none of that training crap, this is the real modern day gentleman spy going off to deal with quite the… (stops himself) Again, there’s some really crazy stuff we’ve got planned. But I can’t do it if no one goes to see it.”
