Kingsman director Matthew Vaughn will be at the helm of a new action spy (hopefully) franchise film Argylle. It will be an all star cast including Henry Cavill, Sam Rockwell, Bryce Dallas Howard, Bryan Cranston, Catherine O’Hara, John Cena and Samuel L. Jackson, as well as British pop sensation and Grammy winning popstar Dua Lipa in her acting debut. She will also be creating original music for the title track and score. Talk about a jackpot cast!
Argylle is based on Ellie Conway’s debut novel of the same name and is scheduled to be published in 2022. The script is being written by Wonder Woman writer Jason Fuchs; it follows the world’s greatest spy ‘Argylle’ as he is caught up in a globe-trotting adventure. Creators are hoping it will be the first in at least a trilogy of films.
The film (and book) will follow the globe-trotting adventures of a super-spy named Argylle across the U.S., London and other exotic locations. When asked about his first look, Matthew Vaughn says, “When I read this early draft manuscript I felt it was the most incredible and original spy franchise since Ian Fleming’s books of the ’50s. This is going to reinvent the spy genre.”
CEO Zygi Kamasa, who joined Marv as CEO in September 2020 Is excited about the new franchise following the success of Kingsman series. The prequel The King’s Man is set to be released in theaters by Disney in December 2021.
“We are delighted that we will be starting our fourth, and by far the biggest, feature film production since the start of the global pandemic,” said Kamasa. “It demonstrates our desire to scale up our production activity and our ambition to continue to launch new franchises beyond the Kingsman series of films.”
