It looks like we’ll have to wait a little longer before we get to watch Matthew Vaughn’s Kingsman prequel titled The King’s Man starring Ralph Fiennes and Harrison Dickinson.
Disney has pushed the 20th Century Fox project’s release date from February 14th, 2020 to September 18th, 2020.
I’m slightly curious if we should be bracing for reshoots on the prequel, however, that is purely speculation. If the movie needs some tweaking and extra scenes shot, I don’t think many would object to the extra time to cook it to completion.
Considering that 20th Century Fox projects will have to contend with multiple Disney dates, musical chairs and date shifts are going to become more a future norm.
The film’s cast consists of Ralph Fiennes as Duke of Oxford, Harris Dickinson as Conrad, Gemma Arterton as Polly, Daniel Bruhl, Charles Dance as Arthur, Stanley Tucci, Aaron Taylor-Johnson as Lee Unwin, Djimon Hounsou as Shola, Matthew Goode as Tristan, Tom Hollander, and Rhys Ifans as Rasputin.
Fiennes recently shot Daniel Craig’s final Bond installment with No Time To Die.
HN Entertainment exclusively revealed a while back that Alexandra Maria Lara (Rush) and Joel Basman (Hanna, Papillon) would have roles in The King’s Man.
A third Kingsman installment is expected to shoot sometime next year in England with Taron Egerton and Colin Firth, depending on scheduling of the actors and securing a director (Matthew Vaughn might be handing it off another director).
The studio has yet to make the official announcement while Taron confirmed recently they have a script and Vaughn suggested that filming on Kingsman 3 could begin in early 2020.
