Kingsman Prequel To Feature Brad Pitt And Rachael Weisz
The surprise announcement of Kingsman 3 has undoubtedly opened up multiple forums for speculation. It seems like Writer/ Director Matthew Vaughn is working to expand his Kingsman Universe, albeit this time from behind. Reports indicate that the 2019 part of Kingsman will be a prequel to the 2015 movie Kingsman: The Secret Service. While the filming will start early next year, the film won’t be out until November. The prequel will blur its focus on the Duke of Lanchester’s Regiment and will diverge away into the World War I era. Hence, exploring the origins of the titular organization. Kingsman: The Great Game is not the only upcoming project of the franchise. The Kingsman universe is additionally working on a TV series, as well as on a spinoff movie.
Brad Pitt: The Main Antagonist
In the latest development, it appears that actors Brad Pitt and Rachael Weisz will also join the Kingsman: The Great Game bandwagon. Apparently, Matthew Vaughn wants to cash on the star power of the Hollywood big wigs. Set in the World-War I era, Kingsman 3 will feature several fictional counterparts of real time heroes, those who had helped to shape the history of this globe. The creative team has reportedly locked Bradd Pitt to play Grigori Rasputin. Rasputin was the ‘Mad Monk’ who had gained popularity for his unquenchable sexual desires. In addition to this, his hypnotic, eerie personality also set him apart from mainstream humans.
Rachael Weisz, Harris Dickson, and Ralph Fiennes Onboard
Earlier the news of Kingsman; The Great Game roping in Ralph Fiennes and Harris Dickinson, made headlines. According to sources, Harris Dickson has been confirmed for the film, and he will enact the youthful protagonist on Kingsman 3: Conrad. Meanwhile, Matthew Vaughn is eyeing Rachael Weisz to play the protagonist’s mother, Polly. The semi-realism will also feature characters including Archduke Ferdinand’s assassin Gavrilo Princip as well as famed female spy, Mata Hari. In addition to this, it will also see a spy-shepherd who will have some involvement with Princip.
Box Office Predictions For Kingsman 3
2015’s Kingsman: The Secret Service had earned over $414 million at the worldwide box office during its run. The film’s sequel, 2017’s Kingsman: The Golden Circle, saw a slightly smaller take, earning somewhere around $410 million. The original part had a fair score on review aggregators and was particularly applauded for its creative subtlety. The ratings were somewhere around 75%. However, The Golden Circle sits much lower with only a 53% on Rotten Tomatoes. Kingsman 3 is a risky game for the creators, and we can only wait and watch if the film is able to turn up the same perks as its first part. Nevertheless, things do seem optimistic with big names like Brad Pitt, Rachael Weisz, Harris Dickson, and Ralph Fiennes.
