Kingsman prequel The Great Game gets a new title and full synopsis
The forthcoming prequel to Kingsman has been given a new title.
The prequel had been titled The Great Game, but has now been given the new title of The King's Man.
The film will star Ralph Fiennes and newcomer Harris Dickinson and will be set during World War I.
It will blend the fictional universe of the Kingsman with the real-life Duke of Lancaster’s Regiment, which has had a rank known as Kingsman for more than a century.
The film's synopsis reads: "As a collection of history's worst tyrants and criminal masterminds gather to plot a war to wipe out millions, one man must race against time to stop them..."
The movie had been due to be released in UK cinemas on November 8th this year, but has now been pushed back to February 14th in 2020.
Ironically, the film's new release date is the one vacated by the new James Bond movie, which moved back to April late last year.
The Great Game will see Matthew Vaughn directing once again, working from a script written by Karl Gajdusek.
Daniel Brühl, Charles Dance, Rhys Ifans, Matthew Goode, Aaron Taylor-Johnson, Gemma Arterton, Tom Hollander, Djimon Hounsou and Stanley Tucci will co-star alongside Fiennes and Dickinson.
