Channing Tatum will join Taron Egerton, Mark Strong, Julianne Moore, Halle Berry, Elton John, and more in Kingsman: The Golden Circle.
The cast list for the Kingsman sequel keeps getting more and more impressive.
In The Golden Circle, Taron Egerton’s Eggsy is going up against Julianne Moore, with Halle Berry and Game of Thrones‘ Pedro Pascal representing the U.S. government (Pascal’s character is named Jack Daniels!). Elton John is also appearing because why the hell not?
And now, Channing Tatum has announced he’s joining the team as well!
This just keeps getting better and better. Kingsman: The Secret Circle was a breakout hit last year, bringing the fun and wackiness back into the spy genre and delivering some truly memorable (and scarring!) scenes.
Although Colin Firth’s character was tragically killed off, it looks like he, too, will be returning for The Golden Circle, if this tantalizing tweet from Egerton is anything to go by:

Clearly, Firth’s absence from the sequel would be sorely felt. In fact, director Matthew Vaughn told USA Today ahead of the film’s U.S. debut, “A lot of people are very upset that Colin might not be in the sequel but I’m coming up with ideas at the moment. If people buy tickets in America, I’ve got a feeling we’ll figure out a way for having Colin back.”
Looks like they figured it out!
Here’s hoping that Channing Tatum also gets to be a badass agent… who wows everyone with his dance moves.
