Matthew Vaughn’s Kingsman prequel finally has an official title: The King’s Man.

Originally set for release this November, The King’s Man will now arrive in February 2020 and feature a different cast from the series’ first two films. Aaron Taylor-Johnson, who previously worked with Vaughn on Kick-Ass, is set to star alongside Harris Dickinson, Daniel Bruhl, Rhys Ifans, Matthew Goode, Djimon Hounsou, Gemma Arterton, Charles Dance, Tom Hollander, Stanley Tucci, and Ralph Fiennes.

In addition to the title, a press release also delivered a short synopsis of the story:

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.

After The King’s Man, Vaughn is set to work on a sequel to Kingsman: The Secret Service and Kingsman: The Golden Circle with Taron Eggerton and Colin Firth reprising their roles. Another spin-off franchise and TV series are also in development.
