This is so exciting!
Kingsman: The Secret Service was one of the most fun and action-packed flicks of last year which is why we're VERY excited for a sequel!
While we knew that director Matthew Vaughn and breakout star Taron Egerton would be returning for more — word is Colin Firth will not be reprising his role in any way (news which we do NOT like just as it is) — now we've got news about the new villain.

Samuel L. Jackson was the baddie in the first one and obviously has pretty big shoes to fill, but if reports are true, Julianne Moore could be signing on to be the evil-doer in the spy movie's sequel!
While we don't know much else about the flick — other than rumors that the film could be taking place in the States instead of London — we're definitely on board with the idea of Moore joining in the action!
And is it just us or are they making all the villains American as a joke on the idea that American villains are always Brits..?
Unfortunately, there is a possibility that the Oscar-winner won't be able to ink the deal as she's juggling several other projects at the moment, including Todd Haynes' adaptation of the children's book Wonderstruck.
Would you be interested in Julianne joining the cast??
