Last Thursday, a teaser poster for Kingsman: The Golden Circle arrived, hinting that one of everyone's favourite characters might be back despite some serious problems in the original. We know that the new film will see an American equivalent to the British agents and now Matthew Vaughn appears to have recruited Game Of Thrones' Pedro Pascal to play their main man.

The new movie will definitely see the return of Taron Egerton's former wide boy Eggsy and stalwart quartermaster Merlin [{href='' target='_blank' rel='noopener noreferrer'}), with the addition of some new international flavour in the shape of American counterparts known as the Statesmen. They'll be represented by swaggering cowboy-style character Jack and Halle Berry's Ginger. And they'll all need to work together to battle Julianne Moore's villain, a woman named Poppy.

According to Deadline, Pascal is now aboard to play the strutting, charismatic Jack – full name reportedly Jack Daniels, which makes sense in Vaughn and co-writer Jane Goldman's spy world – and would seem to be the ideal choice. We know he can do cocky and dramatic, and he'll spar well off of Egerton.

With Edward Holcroft also back as Charlie, there's more to be gleaned about the new film in Empire's current issue. Kingsman: The Golden Circle will be with us on June 16 next year.
