Kingsman 3: Taron Egerton will not return for Golden Circle sequel

Although the Kingsman series may have made Taron Egerton an international star, the actor will not be returning for the upcoming sequel.

Speaking to Yahoo Movies, the actor – promoting his latest movie Robin Hood – said: “I don’t know how hot off the press this is, and I think I’m allowed to say it, but I’m not in the next Kingsman movie.

“That doesn’t mean I won’t be in Kingsman ever again. I was with [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.”

Egerton played the series’ leading character Gary “Eggsy” Unwin, a James Bond-like spy who works for a secret service, in both Kingsman and its sequel Kingsman: The Golden Circle. Vaughn directed both instalments and gave Egerton an insight about what’s to come.

“His idea for the new one is incredibly exciting,” Egerton continued. “I’m sad that I won’t be on that journey with him but it’s not the last you’ve seen of Eggsy.”

Kingsman: The Golden Circle concluded with Eggsy marrying a princess, which many presumed meant the sequel would see the character awkwardly balance home-life and undercover work. Perhaps Eggsy has settled down for good with his new bride?

Kingsman 3 currently has a release date of 8 November, 2019
