'Kingsman' Prequel Adding 'Game of Thrones,' 'Harry Potter' Actors to Cast
The world of "Kingsman" is getting populated with new faces.
The third movie in the franchise will be a prequel and instead of starring Taron Egerton, will focus on Harris Dickinson's Conrad, a cocky yet charming young hero who fights in World War I. Joseph Fiennes is also set to star.
Now, Collider reports that the drama's ensemble is growing. In talks to join the cast are Daniel Brühl ("Captain America: Civil War," TNT's "The Alienist"); Charles Dance ("Game of Thrones"); Matthew Goode ("Downton Abbey," "The Crown"); and Rhys Ifans ("Harry Potter," "Alice Through the Looking Glass").
Ifans would reportedly play a dangerous and manipulative Russian mystic, while the other roles are unclear.
"Kingsman" director Matthew Vaughn has big plans for the franchise universe. He's working on a sequel to "Golden Circle" that would bring back Egerton as Eggy. He's also developing a "Kingsman" television series and a "Statesman" movie about American spies.
The "Kingsman" prequel is slated for release November 9, 2019.
