In what’s certainly a bit of a shock, actor Taron Egerton won’t be back for the upcoming third Kingsman film. Egerton played the franchise’s main character, Eggsy, in the first two films but the character isn’t part of what director Matthew Vaughn has planned for the next film.
“I’m not in the new Kingsman,” Egerton told Yahoo while promoting his new movie Robin Hood. “That doesn’t mean I won’t ever be in Kingsman ever again. I was with Matthew as little as a few days ago. I’ve got a missed call from him this morning. We’re very much still in business together. It’s just that his next journey in that universe doesn’t involve me.”
So who does it involve, since the belief was Kingsman 3 would round out a trilogy? Egerton isn’t saying.
“His idea for the new one is incredibly exciting,” the actor 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.”
The still-untitled third Kingsman is currently scheduled for release November 8, 2019.
