Just checking the date to make sure that it’s not April Fools and no, this story seems legit over on trade magazine Variety. According to the site, Universal Pictures are going to resurrect the awful first film into a sequel and reports are that Rowan Atkinson is coming back for the sequel and that Working Title (the British branch of Universal) are looking for an August release date. Do they mean this August?!
They go on to say that although in the US, the first movie only made $28m, overseas (I guess where Atkinson is much bigger) it brought in $161m! Crazy stats eh!
Sorry for the all the question marks and explanation marks but I really can’t believe it. Anyone out there actually looking forward to a second installment?!
