Kingsman 3 Won't Bring Back Taron Egerton

Egerton spoke with Yahoo!

Fans of the brilliant Kingsmanmovies were delighted to learn that an eagerly anticipated third outing was in the works, but they may be devastated to learn that star Taron Egerton won't be making a return as Eggsy. Perhaps what Egerton really revealed is that The Great Game might be made before Kingsman 3, which presumably means it's that episode that will open on November 8 of next year, aka the slot previously held by the next Bond film before that ran into all those pre-production headaches. Movies UK ahead of his new film, Robin Hood, Egerton was asked about the third Kingsman movie, which was already reported to be a prequel to the first two.

It was also a bit confusing, since Egerton noted the news doesn't mean he's completely done with the franchise. "I was with [series director Matthew Vaughn] as little as a few days ago, we're still very much in business together, but his next journey in that world doesn't involve me". Set against the backdrop of World War I, the film is alleged to have added Ralph Fiennes to its cast.

Egerton says that he has chatted with Vaughn about the plot of the third movie and is impressed with what he's heard.

"I think his idea for the new one is incredibly exciting, and I'm sad that I won't be on that journey with him, but it's not the last you've seen of Eggsy".

Given that we already are getting casting details for Kingsman: The Great Game, I suppose it makes sense, but it is a bit disappointing we'll have to wait longer before we see that Eggsy and Harry story wrap up.

So Eggsy isn't in the next film quite simply because he won't have been born yet when it takes place.

Kingsman 3 is slated to hit theaters in 2019, but the film's main actor won't be a part of it.

Beyond this month's Robin Hood, Egerton will be starring as Elton John in the upcoming Rocketman biopic. But we'll bet you absolutely no money that he didn't.
