Channing Tatum Joins The Amazing 'Kingsman: The Golden Circle' Cast

Wow. Matthew Vaughn is really upping the ante when it comes to Kingsman: The Golden Circle, his sequel to last year's suprise spy hit, Kingsman: The Secret Service. Already there's been the tease of Colin Firth's unexpected return as Harry Hart; plus the additions of Julianne Moore, Halle Berry, and Pedro Pascal to the cast. As if that wasn't enough, over the weekend Elton John, the friggin' "PianoMan" himself, entered talks for a role. And now? Here comes Channing Tatum.

Tatum broke the news himself on Twitter with the following image and caption...

Considering the film is set to bring the action to America, it sounds like Tatum will be playing a Southern spy, possibly a member of the Kingsman's U.S. counterparts, the Statesman.  This is also probably more of an indication that Fox's Gambit film is either dead or a long way from getting started, but at least they found something for Tatum to do in the meantime.

Taron Egerton, Mark Strong, Sophie Cookson, and Edward Holcroft will reprise their roles for Kingsman: The Golden Circle which opens on June 16th 2017.
