Argylle Director Hints at Multiple Sequels, New Photos from Spy Comedy Unveiled

  • Matthew Vaughn, the director of “Argylle,” has plans for two sequels following the spy origin story.
  • The sequels will be based on further books in the series and move away from the meta-approach of the first film.
  • Henry Cavill is excited to continue playing Agent Argylle, given a good story and fit with his career goals.

Henry Cavill’s new spy action comedy, “Argylle,” is set to debut next month, and director Matthew Vaughn has ambitious plans for the franchise. He shared with Total Film that he envisions two sequels, with the first focusing on the origin story of Cavill’s super spy character.

According to Vaughn, “Book one is about: how did Argylle become a spy? That will be the next film. And then Argylle 2 is – I don’t want to give it all away, but there’s the young Argylle, and that becomes Henry, because Henry loves the idea of doing a proper Argylle movie as well.” The first film has a meta-narrative, in which Bryce Dallas Howard plays Elly Conway, an author who gets embroiled in the world of espionage. The sequels, however, will be more straightforward adaptations of the book series.

Henry Cavill seems equally enthusiastic about portraying Agent Argylle in future installments. “I think it’s a fun character. I mean, it depends on where we go with it, really, as with anything. I have a great relationship with Matthew, so that would be the hard part out of the way. The next bit is just building a story. As long as the story is good, and the character has a place to go, and it fits in with everything else that I’m trying to build and do, then great,” he said.

Matthew Vaughn hopes that “Argylle” will perform well at the box office, encouraging audiences to support “original stuff.” He emphasizes that people need to buy tickets for such films to continue being made. “Argylle,” featuring an all-star cast, tells the story of reclusive author Elly Conway, whose espionage novels closely resemble the activities of a real spy organization. The film releases in theaters on February 2, 2024, followed by a later release on Apple TV+.
