Matthew Vaughn, 'Kingsman' cast reveal they want to do a musical
Director Matthew Vaughn has shone a spotlight on mutants, superheroes, and spies in his films. Next on his list? Singers.
Vaughn joined Kingsman: The Secret Service cast’s Colin Firth, Samuel L. Jackson, and Taron Egerton at an EW Radio event to discuss the upcoming film with EW and People‘s Jess Cagle.
Vaughn and the cast took questions from Cagle and the audience about Kingsman, but the animated panel quickly veered into uncharted waters—specifically, what genre or type of role they might want to tackle next.
Egerton joked, “Anything you’re willing to cast me in,” but Vaughn quickly followed up with a more specific answer—a musical.
Listen to his response below, and whether the musical project gets off the ground, it sounds like every actor on hand would be more than willing to take part.
Vaughn also spoke to the process of adapting the Kingsman graphic novel into his new film, which opens Friday, Feb. 13, while also addressing the film’s competitor (if not in genre than at least in release), Fifty Shades of Grey.
The full EW Radio event, which includes Jackson discussing how he messed with Kingsman‘s audio team, will premiere on Friday at 1 p.m. EST on Sirius XM channel 105.
