COMINGSOONTheWrap brings word today that 20th Century Fox is developing a sequel to the Matthew Vaughn-directed film Kingsman: The Secret Service. No official announcement has been made about the film, but with Vaughn set to direct the reboot of Flash Gordon, it’s possible he may not return to helm the sequel. Vaughn is credited as a co-plotter in the original comic book series, which ironically has yet to publish a second volume.

Based upon the 2012 Icon Comics miniseries by Dave Gibbons and Mark Millar, Kingsman: The Secret Service tells the story of a super-secret spy organization that recruits an unrefined but promising street kid into the agency’s ultra-competitive training program just as a global threat emerges from a twisted tech genius.

The film stars Academy Award winners Colin Firth and Michael Caine alongside Academy Award nominee Samuel L. Jackson, Mark Strong and newcomers Taron Egerton, Sofia Boutella and Sophie Cookson.

Scripted by Vaughn and Jane Goldman, Kingsman: The Secret Service has grossed over $401 million at the global box office. The film will debut on Digital HD on May 15 and later on Blu-ray and DVD on June 9.

LONDON EVENING STANDARD – Rising star Sophie Cookson has revealed how she and Gugu Mbatha-Raw used to sing and dance together as children – and now they’re film award rivals.

Cookson, 24, has been shortlisted for best female newcomer in the Jameson Empire Awards for her appearance in Matthew Vaughn’s Kingsman: The Secret Service.

Her fellow contenders include Mbatha-Raw, 31, who took the title role in international hit Belle, based on the true story of a mixed-race girl raised at Kenwood House in London in the 18th century.

Cookson, who shot spy comedy Kingsman straight after leaving the Oxford School of Drama two years ago, said her nomination in the awards – which are voted for by the public – felt unreal.

“The craziest thing for me is being in the same category as Gugu. She was just about to start going to drama school when I was about 10 and we were both in the National Youth Music Theatre.”

The actress added that she was thrilled her Kingsman co-star Taron Egerton, 25, is up for best male newcomer because it “just feels like a celebration of what we did”.

Cookson, who was raised in Sussex and Suffolk, got her first break at drama school, filming Sky’s adaptation of the novel Moonfleet with Ray Winstone. It was while she was on location in Ireland that she was sent the script for Kingsman, which also starred Colin Firth. “Colin was already attached at the time so I didn’t take it very seriously,” she said. “Why would I be in a film with Colin Firth? That’s ridiculous.” So she sent a video of herself as requested and moved on. “You learn to forget about these things.”

But she won the part. “Every day was a new challenge. It was a big baptism of fire. I’m incredibly lucky that Matthew thought I was the right person. He has opened so many doors for me.”
