Matthew Vaughn is part of an exclusive club of directors who haven’t yet made an outright “bad” film (at least according to this writer, The Playlist staff tends to disagree). His filmography showcases an impressive range of features, from “Layer Cake” to “Stardust” to Kick-Ass,” all the while maintaining a distinct directorial voice and aesthetic. Your mileage may vary for his films individually (see above, but in my opinion, he hasn’t made an outright stinker yet.

Vaughn held out on personally directing sequels in the past but returned to direct “Kingsman: The Golden Circle,” sequel to the 2015 spy sleeper hit “Kingsman: The Secret Service.” “Golden Circle,” starring an absolutely stacked cast including Taron Egerton, Julianne Moore, Halle Berry, Channing Tatum and Jeff Bridges is set to be released September 22nd, 2017.  And lucky for us, it looks like Vaughn will be back for a third “Kingsman” film.

At the 20th Century Fox preview on Friday, Vaughn revealed he began planning the third “Kingsman” film while writing “The Golden Circle.” He dropped a particularly tantalizing hint for the future of the franchise, stating that “no one will predict where Eggsy winds up.” Well, count me for whatever conclusion Vaughn has cooked up. Fox would be wise to let Vaughn finish out his trilogy; it worked gangbusters for them with Matt Reeves and his “Planet of the Apes” franchise after all.

    I assume Oliver is curled up in a corner somewhere, silently screaming how SEXIST and XENOPHOBIC Elizabeth must surely be for praising (or ENABLING) Vaughn. Poor Oliver. This must be torture for him. Don’t worry. He’ll have many, many chances over the next year to decry Vaughn, likely comparing him to Trump or any other PROBLEMATIC figure. Perhaps he’ll join that most enlightened of film scholars Jeff Wells and continue to decry FANBOYS … or whatever label he chooses to deploy to denigrate those who *shudder* disagree with his thoughts on the filmmaker.
