From Superman to Walter White, director Matthew Vaughn has created an all-star ensemble in his new spy thriller “Argylle.” Please take a breath before you read this list aloud, okay? It’s not for the faint of heart.
Henry Cavill, John Cena, Bryan Cranston, Bryce Dallas Howard, Samuel L. Jackson, Catherine O’Hara, and Sam Rockwell will all star in Vaughn’s latest project. Additionally, pop star Dua Lipa will be making her film debut in front of the camera. She will also create original music for the score and the film’s title track.
The plot is standard spy fare. The movie, which is based on an unreleased novel of the same name, follows the titular “Argylle,” the greatest spy ever. It’s set in several international locations, and hopes to be the first in a trilogy of films. Someone should tell Vaughn he already has a spy franchise to worry about.
Vaughn claims the novel “is going to reinvent the spy genre,” which feels a bit optimistic. The spy genre is in no need of any kind of reinvention Matthew! You have a whole set of “Kingsman” movies that prove the formula works fine. Regardless, a division of Penguin Random House is publishing the book next year.
As for that incredible cast, let us hope that unlike “Knives Out 2” we don’t have to hear about a new actor every other day. I can only type articles so fast!
