Elton John is in Talks to Join KINGSMAN: THE GOLDEN CIRCLE
It looks like director Matthew Vaughn might nab legendary rock star Elton John for his upcoming sequel Kingsman: The Golden Circle. I would have never thought I’d see Elton John in a hardcore badass action franchise, but there’s a strong possibility it could happen as the musician is currently in talks to join the project.
If they can strike a deal, John will join the previously-cast Taron Egerton, Mark Strong, Julianne Moore, Halle Berry, Pedro Pascal, and judging by the first teaser poster we saw for the film, Colin Firth will be coming back to join the party as well.
There’s no word on who exactly John will be playing in the movie, but THR suggests that he could be playing himself. The sequel will continue of the adventures of Eggsy and it takes the action from the Kingsman group to the Statesmen, which is the U.K. organization's U.S. equivalent.
Kingsman: The Golden Circle is set to start shooting in London soon from a script Vaughn co-wrote with frequent collaborator Jane Goldman. The movie hits theaters on June 16, 2017.
