Work on Kingsman: The Golden Circle is underway, and now director Matthew Vaughn has brought an old friend into the cast.
Vinnie Jones took to Twitter to announce that he's going to be a part of the movie, which is a sequel to the surprise hit Kingsman: The Secret Service, which will see him reunite with Vaughn, who helped give the footballer-turned-actor his first film role in Lock, Stock, and Two Smoking Barrels (which was produced by Vaughn).
After that, the pair continued to work together for the next few years, with Vaughn also producing both Snatch and the remake of Mean Machine. Now Vaughn will get to direct Jones for the first time, with the actor joining fellow new additions Julianne Moore, Jeff Bridges, Halle Berry, Channing Tatum, and, erm, Elton John. Taron Egerton, Mark Strong, and, yes, Colin Firth will all be back as well.
Jones posted a series of tweets announcing the news, including videos of him on set for those doubting that it was actually him, as well as photos with Vaughn and Moore.
Kingsman: The Golden Circle is scheduled for release June 16, 2017.
NCTJ-qualified journalist. Most definitely not a racing driver. Drink too much tea; eat too much peanut butter; watch too much TV. Sadly only the latter paying off so far.
A mix of wise-old man in a young man's body with a child-like wonder about him and a great otherworldly sensibility.
