It's definite: Elton John is joining Kingsman 2,

Well, here’s one we can move from the rumour column over to fact. Elton John is indeed - as had been first mooted a few weeks back - joining the cast of Kingsman: The Golden Circle.

Replay Video
The movie is currently shooting in the UK – indeed, second unit action sequences have been filmed in Birmingham these past few days – and Taron Egerton is back as Eggsy.

As for Elton John, his involvement has been confirmed on a modern, time-honoured way: by the posting of a poster to his Instagram account. This one, in fact…

We still don't know what his exact role is. We do know that Matthew Vaughn is returning to direct the Kingsman sequel.

Kingsman: The Golden Circle is set for release on June 16th 2017. More on the movie as we hear it.
