The American actor announced via Twitter he will star in the upcoming sequel to Matthew Vaughn's hit action-comedy Kingsman: The Secret Service.

“I’m about to get all up in that Golden Circle,” he tweeted on Wednesday (13Apr16).

The original movie, which starred Colin Firth, Samuel L. Jackson, and Taron Egerton, earned more than $35 million (£24 million) when it opened last February (15) against competition from Fifty Shades of Grey. It went on to make almost $415 million (£293 million) worldwide. With a script penned by British-born Matthew and Jane Goldman, the sequel will further chronicle the exploits of Taron's character Gary 'Eggsy' Unwin, an erstwhile London hooligan who has been trained in the art of heroics by a secret spy organisation. In addition, despite their characters’ deaths in the first film, Colin and Edward Holcroft are also returning, though in what capacity remains unknown. They’ll be joined by Game of Thrones star Pedro Pascal, with Hollywood heavyweights Halle Berry and Julianne Moore also reportedly in talks to join the cast. Magic Mike star Channing's role is also unclear at this stage but the graphic included in his tweet, may suggest he will play an American counterpart of Eggsy, known as the Statesman.

Hail, Caesar! Review

Excellent

An intelligent ode to a time when Hollywood made wildly inventive movies without pressure from focus groups, there's a serious edge to what superficially looks like a madcap comical romp. But this isn't one of Joel and Ethan Coen's nutty comedies. It's a pointed exploration of the collision between art and commerce, assembled as a sprawlingly entertaining ensemble movie packed with lively, often hilarious characters.

It's set over 24 hours at Capitol Pictures in 1951 as studio minder Eddie (Josh Brolin) tries to keep several movies in production despite a series of hitches, while twin gossip columnists (two Tilda Swintons) try to get a scoop. Top movie star Baird (George Clooney) has been kidnapped by communist writers from the set of his Roman epic. Water-ballet diva DeeAnna (Scarlett Johansson) is pregnant and unapologetically unmarried. And rising-star Hobie (Alden Ehrenreich) is struggling to make the transition from Western action hero to chamber room drama, clashing with his demanding new director Laurence (Ralph Fiennes). Meanwhile, song-and-dance man Burt (Channing Tatum) is up to something on the set of his sailor musical. With all of this, Eddie begins to think that maybe he should take the offer of a job outside the film industry.

As the movie darts between these various productions, the Coens gleefully reinvent this series of genres that have essentially died out. Yes, the film is a pointed depiction of how Hollywood used to make a wide array of movies for much broader audiences. Each sequence is written and directed with witty details that perfectly catch the way the chaos of a film set can be transformed into a glamorous motion picture in time for the starry red-carpet premiere. And the entire cast rises to the challenge. Clooney is terrific as the dim-witted star who hasn't a clue what's happening around him. Ehrenreich shows real charm as a smart kid struggling in an insane situation. Brolin holds things together in a surprisingly sympathetic role, while Swinton, Johansson and Fiennes add plenty of spark, and the film is stolen by Frances McDormand as a spiky film editor.

Channing Tatum Surprised With Hail Caesar! Dance Number


Channing Tatum George Clooney Josh Brolin Ralph Fiennes Scarlett Johansson Jonah Hill Tilda Swinton Ethan Coen Joel Coen

The Hollywood star may be known for his dancing skills, thanks to movies like Step Up and Magic Mike, but singing and tapping across the screen in full sailor uniform was a new challenge for Channing.

"I'd never put on a pair of tap shoes," he laughed to Britain's Metro newspaper. "It was only about four sentences in the script that said, 'He walks into a dance routine'. It was supposed to be on a battleship - and my character does a knee-slide to a bucket. I was like, 'Great, I think I can do that'. Cut to a few meetings later - now it was a six-minute song-and-dance (scene)."

Channing isn't the only A-lister to show off a new talent; George Clooney plays "willing imbecile" Baird Whitlock, a big time movie star who gets kidnapped by a group of communist sympathisers in 1950s America.

Hail Caesar Was A Bonding Experience For Clooney And Tatum


George Clooney Channing Tatum

"Literally, every time they call me, it's like, 'Well, we got another knucklehead for you to play,'" Clooney laughs. "I'm like, 'Gee thanks!' Then they say, 'Hey, we wrote this with you in mind.' So I read it, and he's an idiot."

Josh Brolin Got Slap Happy With Clooney


Josh Brolin George Clooney Channing Tatum Scarlett Johansson

The two men star opposite each other in the comedy movie, in which Josh plays a Hollywood fixer in the '50s while George is in his element as a famous movie star. One scene required Josh to hit his co-star, and to make it feel genuine the actor focused on the many reasons why people may want to slap the former bachelor, who tied the knot with his wife Amal in September 2014.

"Everybody in the whole world wants to go for it," Josh grinned to craveonline.com. "All the times he ever said he was going to be single forever, the perpetual single man, and all the women who felt like they were losing out, and all the men that hated him because he was so handsome and all their women wanted him... I slapped him for all those people.

"We had grand fun that day. I kept it a little more serious than he did that day. Usually I’m the instigator of a lot of clownish behaviour, but he stayed true to form that day and I tried to keep it... because he didn’t have to do anything, he just had to look like an idiot and be slapped."

Channing Tatum Studied Tap Dancing For Coen Brothers


Channing Tatum

The movie hunk was thrilled when the Coen Brothers offered him a part in their new comedy, and when they asked if to tap dance and sing he studied hard to make sure he didn't let the filmmaking siblings down.

"They asked, 'Do you know how to tap?'" Channing told WENN, "and I was like, 'no', and they were like, 'Well, we're thinking about tapping. Do you think you could learn?' 'Of course', I said, 'I'll try'.

"They sent me this Donald O'Connor movie, called, Applied Mathematics, in which he does this unbelievable tap dance on the bar, swinging over this thing.
