The sequel to 2014 film Kingsman: The Secret Service is a matter of months away and filmmaker Matthew Vaughn has hinted he'd like to close the series with a third part sometime in the future.

Speaking at a Fox footage event on Friday, Vaughn - whose previous credits include Kick-Ass and Stardust - showed the first act of Kingsman: The Golden Circle to assembled guests before settling down for a Q&A where he revealed a third instalment is in the pipeline.

“Weirdly while we were writing Kingsman 2, we were thinking of Kingsman 3 as well, which is odd,” said Vaughn. 

“We’ve got a big idea for that. This is sort of the bridge and if we can pull this off, we’ll make another one.”

Deadline reports that the first hour of Kingsman 2 - which sees the return of Taron Egerton and Colin Firth alongside Channing Tatum, Halle Berry, Julianne Moore and Jeff Bridges - provided “lots of action, lots of violence big set pieces and quick wit.”

Vaughn expressed his initial reluctance to returning to the Kingsman series before criticising a sequel he produced in 2013.

“I was very hesitant about making a sequel purely because so many sequels don’t really enhance the experience. They’re normally bigger but not necessarily better.

"Kick-Ass 2 was a big learning curve of how not to make a sequel. We didn’t set out to make a terrible film.”

Kingsman: The Golden Circle will be released on 29 September
