So whilst we wait for the third Kingsman film to finally get a release this December having been postponed due to the pandemic for almost two years we have news of an Argyle action movie with an all star cast from Kingsman director Matthew Vaughn which will start shooting this August in Europe.
The film, based on the soon to be launched spy novel “Argylle” from author Ellie Conway, follows the world’s greatest spy “Argylle” as he is caught up in a globe-trotting adventure. Argylle will be the first of at least three films in the franchise and is set in America, London and multiple locations across the world. Conway’s debut thriller is scheduled to be published in a major launch in 2022.
Henry Cavill, Sam Rockwell, Bryce Dallas Howard, Bryan Cranston, Catherine O’Hara, John Cena, and Samuel L. Jackson are set to star in the film. Global pop superstar Dua Lipa is also joining the all-star cast in her acting debut, and will provide original music for the title track and score.
Matthew Vaughn will direct from a script written by Jason Fuchs (Wonder Woman), produced by Vaughn’s regular collaborators Adam Bohling and David Reid, as well as Fuchs. Matthew Vaughn commented, “When I read this early draft manuscript I felt it was the most incredible and original spy franchise since Ian Fleming’s books of the 50s. This is going to reinvent the spy genre”, which is a pretty bold claim by any standard!
Zygi Kamasa, CEO of MARV said, “We are delighted that we will be starting our fourth, and by far the biggest, feature film production since the start of the global pandemic. It demonstrates both our desire to scale up our production activity and our ambition to continue to launch new franchises beyond the Kingsman series of films.”
Bring it on!
