So, how does one follow up having Samuel L Jackson in your movie as a villain? The folks working on Kingsman: The Secret Service 2 are hoping that the answer to that question is Julianne Moore. The Hollywood Reporter is stating that the actress is in talks to play the sequel’s big bad.
Both director Matthew Vaughn and star Taron Egerton are already set to return to for the follow up of Egerton’s street tough turned sophisticated spy. Early reports state the sequel’s action will move from the first film’s London locale across the pond to the United States.
The Hollywood Reporter does not that Moore has a fairly busy schedule, but if she can have that cleared for the film’s planned for summer shoot, she is in.
Given that she didn’t really get to shine in her underbaked antagonist role in the Hunger Games moves, it is exciting to see what she will do in the more over-the-top Kingsman franchise.
