May 3, 2019

‘Kingsman: The Great Game’ now has two new actors onboard, according to HN Entertainment!

The stacked ensemble is below, with the new additions in bold:

  • Robert Aramayo (‘Nocturnal Animals,’ ‘Game of Thrones’)
  • Gemma Arterton (‘Hansel & Gretel: Witch Hunters ,’ ‘Watership Down’)
  • Joel Basman (‘Hanna,’ ‘Papillon’)
  • Daniel Brühl (‘Captain America: Civil War,’ ‘The Alienist’)
  • Charles Dance (‘Game of Thrones,’ ‘Godzilla: King of the Monsters’)
  • Harris Dickinson (‘Trust,’ ‘The Dark Crystal: Age of Resistance’)
  • Ralph Fiennes (‘Harry Potter’ franchise, ‘The Grand Budapest Hotel’)
  • Matthew Goode (‘Watchmen,’ ‘The Crown’)
  • Tom Hollander (‘Bohemian Rhapsody,’ ‘Bird Box’)
  • Djimon Hounsou (‘Captain Marvel,’ ‘Shazam!’)
  • Rhys Ifans (‘The Amazing Spider-Man,’ ‘Snowden’)
  • Neil Jackson (‘Westworld,’ ‘Welcome to Marwen’)
  • Alexandra Maria Lara (‘Downfall,’ ‘Rush’)
  • Aaron Taylor-Johnson (‘Avengers: Age of Ultron,’ ‘Nocturnal Animals’)
  • Stanley Tucci (‘Feud,’ ‘A Private War’)
  • Alison Steadman (‘Pride and Prejudice,’ ‘Orphan Black’)

Moreover, the film is a period drama prequel, and not the ending to the pre-existing Harry Hart and Eggsy trilogy. Therefore, actors like Taron Egerton and Colin Firth will not be making appearances in the movie. But fear not, the true third film is coming, as Vaughn expects to shoot the sequel after taking a short break when he wraps the prequel in May or June. Additionally, the characters in ‘The Great Game’ may tie into the untitled ‘Kingsman 3.’

The premise of the prequel is below:

“The young, cocky and charming son of a British Duke, Conrad (Dickinson) is eager to find a way to serve his country during World War I… and perhaps the Kingsman offer him just that opportunity.”

Further, this is only the start of the expanding ‘Kingsman’ universe. Vaughn is developing a ‘Statesman’ film based on the characters introduced in the second film ‘Kingsman: The Golden Circle.’ Also, a ‘Kingsman’ an eight-hour miniseries is on the way, which is “complementary to the movies but different enough, otherwise what’s the point?,” as said by Vaughn.

Additionally, the crew includes:

  • Costume designer Michele Clapton (‘Game of Thrones,’ ‘The Crown’)
  • Cinematographer Ben Davis (‘Doctor Strange,’ ‘Captain Marvel’)
  • Production designer Darren Gilford (‘Star Wars: The Force Awakens,’ ‘Kingsman: The Great Game’)
  • Stunt coordinator Bradley James Allan (‘Kingsman: The Great Game,’ ‘Solo: A Star Wars Story’)
  • Supervising art director Doug J. Meerdink (‘The Italian Job,’ ‘Kong: Skull Island’)

‘Kingsman: The Great Game’ is currently filming, and will release on February 14, 2020.
