'Kingsman: The Secret Service' star Taron Egerton says 'Kingsman 2' will be shot in some "incredible" places across the world and feature a villain even badder than Samuel L. Jackson's Valentin
Taron Egerton says 'Kingsman 2' will go "international".
The 25-year-old actor - who will reprise his role of troubled youth-turned-secret service agent Gary 'Eggsy' Unwin in Matthew Vaughn's upcoming sequel - is excited about the movie because he will get to visit "incredible" places around the world.
The actor - who starred alongside Samuel L. Jackson and Colin Firth in the original film - revealed: "With 'Kingsman', we're shooting in the summer at present. There's a script, it's brilliant. Obviously there's only so much I can say but what I can say is that we shot the first one all in the UK, that won't be the case with the next one. It's a far more international story, we're going to some incredible places."
Hollywood legend Samuel L. Jackson played an eccentric eco-warrior called Richmond Valentine who planned to save the planet from climate change via a worldwide killing spree.
But Taron - who currently star's in biopic 'Eddie the Eagle' with Hugh Jackman' - says the villain for the next installment is so "amazing" he wishes he could play the part himself.
Speaking from the Sundance Film Festival, he told Collider: "We have a villain to rival Samuel L. Jackson - this new one is so brilliantly written I wish I could play it. It's amazing."
Filming for 'Kingsman 2' has began and the movie is set for release in July 2017.
