'Kingsman: The Secret Service' star Colin Firth may return for a sequel, according to director Matthew Vaughn

Colin Firth may return for a sequel to 'Kingsman: The Secret Service'.

The 54-year-old star appeared unlikely to return for the much-anticipated sequel after his on-screen character, Harry, was shot by Valentine - played by Samuel L Jackson - in the first movie, but director Matthew Vaughn suggested he could return for the next movie.

He said: "A lot of people are very upset that Colin might not be in the sequel. But I'm coming up with ideas at the moment.

"If people buy tickets in America, I've got a feeling we'll figure out a way for having Colin back."

Vaughn also previewed other aspects of the sequel, suggesting Eggsy - played by Taron Egerton - will remain a key character in the next movie.

He told USA Today: "The sequel will be, 'This is the modern-day gentleman spy'. Because Harry isn't.

"Harry even says, 'There is a reason why we've developed weak chins'. He said that, meaning, 'Look at us, we need to get new blood into this system', and that's what Eggsy is.

"I joke that we've made the prequel to the Eggsy movie."

'Kingsman: The Secret Service' is out now in cinemas.

Eggsy (Egerton) is a streetwise petty criminal, who debonair secret agent Harry (Firth) inducts into Kingsman, a super-secret spy organisation going up against bonkers, lisping billionaire Richmond Valentine (Jackson). Egerton is confident and engaging, Firth is visibly enjoying himself, and despite the odd puerile joke…

Why would anyone see a sequel without Colin Firth? His part and performance were terrific and he is the heart (pun intended) of the film. Seriously, nobody will see it, particularly women, if Firth is not in the sequel. I sure wouldn't.
