Matthew Vaughn’s popular Briish spy franchise is getting a prequel spinoff and we finally know the official name; Kings Man. Ok yes, it’s a tad uninspiring, but thanks to newly released details of the synopsis and the cast, it’s definitely going to be an interesting one!
The popular films are based on the Mark Millar and Dave Gibbons‘ Kingsman comic books and are usually lead by duo Colin Firth and Taron Egerton, but as the film will be focusing on the history of the spy branch, unfortunately they won’t feature. But don’t worry, the cast looks to be on fine form with actors including Charles Dance, Ralph Fienne, Stanley Tucci and Daniel Brühl.
