Now, it looks like the film is gearing up for filming in 2022.
While promoting The King’s Man, director Matthew Vaughn revealed to ComicBook.com that filming is a go next Summer, “We’re all set to go. We start filming in September.”

The King’s Man is directed by Matthew Vaughn and stars Ralph Fiennes, Gemma Arterton, Rhys Ifans, Matthew Goode, Tom Hollander, Harris Dickinson, Daniel Brühl, with Djimon Hounsou, and Charles Dance. Matthew Vaughn, David Reid and Adam Bohling are the producers, and Mark Millar, Dave Gibbons, Stephen Marks, Claudia Vaughn, and Ralph Fiennes serve as executive producers. The King’s Man is based on the comic book “The Secret Service” by Mark Millar and Dave Gibbons, and the story is by Matthew Vaughn and the screenplay is by Matthew Vaughn & Karl Gajdusek.
Kingsman: The Secret Service debuted in 2014 to rave reviews from critics and fans. The film grossed over $34 million domestically and grossed over $410 million worldwide. A sequel Kingsman: The Golden Circle was released in 2017 and was a step down from the first film, but still managed to gross another $410 million worldwide. A Statesman spin-off was announced following the American branch starring Channing Tatum, Jeff Bridges, and Halle Berry. No word yet if this film will move forward. That said, if The King’s Man has a nice box office run, the possibilities are endless.
