Jane Goldman and Matthew Vaughn on action movie Kingsman, Jasper Johns, BBC National Short Story Award

As spy spoof Kingsman: The Golden Circle is released in cinemas, we speak to its co-writers Jane Goldman and Matthew Vaughn, which Vaughn also directed and produced. A sequel to the original hit Kingsman: The Secret Service, Goldman and Vaughn discuss bringing back a character from the dead, convincing Elton John to be in the cast and the impact of Brexit on the British film industry. Cynan Jones has been shortlisted for the BBC National Short Story Award with The Edge of the Shoal.
