Hollywood star Taron Egerton has revealed 'Kingsman: The Golden Circle' will feature a "presidential thread"
'Kingsman: The Golden Circle' will feature a "presidential thread", according to Taron Egerton.
The 27-year-old actor has reprised the role of Gary 'Eggsy' Unwin, a Kingsman secret agent, for the much-anticipated new movie, and while he is reluctant to reveal too many plot details for fear of upsetting director Matthew Vaughn, he has hinted at what fans can expect.
He said: "I have to be pretty careful what I say - Matthew can say what he wants, it's his film. I think it very much is political.
"I think I can say there's a 'presidential' thread that runs through the new film. I think that, each time, whenever there's a new global threat that arises in the world of 'Kingsman', it will be something that may have genuine relevance."
Taron explained that like the first 'Kingsman' movie, the follow-up will also focus on a timely subject.
He told Den of Geek: "In the first one, I guess we could say it's over population, and in this one, it's a similarly pertinent global theme.
"But I think you're right. It's a warped, distorted presentation of politics, but I think the themes are definitely there."
And Taron admitted that a third movie could follow 'Kingsman: The Golden Circle', which is due out later this year.
He said: "Matthew is a very much, 'Don't count the chickens before they've hatched' kind of guy, but he also has a real sense of 'Kingsman' being his baby and he won't jeopardise it with a crap idea.
"So it depends what occurs, and whether it feels right to him, but I don't think for a second that either he or myself, the lovely people at Fox and whoever else is interested in 'Kingsman', wouldn't completely love it if this is a continuing series."
