The cast of Kingsman: The Golden Circle just keeps getting better. We recently learned that Colin Firth will be returning as Harry Hart (opens in new tab) in the sequel, and now Channing Tatum has joined an impressive cast that includes Taron Egerton, Pedro Pascal, Julianne Moore and Halle Berry.
The news comes from Tatum himself, who took to Twitter to announce his involvement. Check it out below…

While Tatum’s casting feels kinda perfect – he’s really matured into a great actor these last few years – few would have guessed that Elton John would have a role in Kingsman 2. And yet, according to The Hollywood Reporter (opens in new tab) the legendary musician is in talks to join the movie. I’m betting that John will be playing himself here, and I’m interested to see how Matthew Vaughn will use him.
All in all, it’s fair to say that Kingsman 2 is shaping up very nicely…
Directed by Matthew Vaughn and starring Taron Egerton, Mark Strong, Halle Berry, Channing Tatum, Colin Firth, and Julianne Moore, Kingsman: The Golden Circle will be released in cinemas on June 16, 2017.
