Per Deadline, "Argylle," which is written by "Wonder Woman" scribe Jason Fuchs, is set to begin principal photography in Europe in August. The current plan is for "Argylle" to be the first of at least three films in an ongoing spy franchise.
And if there were any doubt, yes — "Argylle" is wearing its "James Bond" influence on its sleeve while also seeking to expand on it. "When I read this early draft manuscript, I felt it was the most incredible and original spy franchise since Ian Fleming's books of the '50s," said Mathew Vaughn in a public statement (via Deadline). This is going to reinvent the spy genre."
"Argylle" is presently set for a theatrical release in 2022. An exact release date has yet to be announced.
