Matthew Vaughn lost the opportunity to direct Daniel Craig as James Bond in Casino Royale.
Vaughn stated, “That’ll be the next year, because Taron’s bloody busy. He’s doing another movie, the guy that did Blackbird, they’re doing another big TV show. So I have to wait for his availability as well.”
Kingsman 3 Will Conclude the Original Story
Kingsman 3, titled Kingsman: The Blue Blood, is slated for release as the final chapter in the main saga, wrapping up the journeys of spies Harry and Eggsy. Apart from the 2021 prequel The King’s Man, the Kingsman series follows the initiation of Taron Egerton’s character Gary ‘Eggsy’ Unwin into an unorthodox organization of international spies. Eggsy finds mentorship under the wing of the seasoned agent Harry Hart, portrayed by Colin Firth.
Egerton served as an executive producer and portrayed American drug dealer Jimmy Keene in the miniseries Black Bird, adapted from Keene’s memoir In with the Devil. The series debuted on Apple TV+ in 2022. Egerton’s portrayal was praised by critics, who noted how the British actor captured Jimmy Keene’s dual nature, transitioning from overt confidence to silent vulnerability. Egerton earned a nomination for the Primetime Emmy Award for Outstanding Lead Actor in a Limited or Anthology Series or Movie for his performance. In 2023, Egerton took on the role of entrepreneur Henk Rogers in the biographical film Tetris, which also premiered on Apple TV+. The Hollywood Reporter highlighted Egerton’s depiction of Rogers, highlighting his ability to embody the character’s earnest goofiness.

The film received generally negative reviews from critics and has grossed $43 million worldwide.
Vaughn’s schedule is also set to be busy as he’s previously announced a reboot of the Kick-Ass franchise and a sequel to The King’s Man.
