A ‘PADDINGTON’ sequel is in the works.
The film’s director Paul King has suggested the sequel will be based on one of author Michael Bond’s novels.
He told Digital Spy, “We’d love to do another one, there’s lots of Paddington books and source material.
“He’s a great character to write for and direct so I’d love to do more. I really hope we can make it happen.”
Meanwhile, Olivier Courson, the chairman and CEO of StudioCanal, recently revealed talks had already begun with producer David Heyman to work on a follow-up to the 2014 hit film, which starred Nicole Kidman, Hugh Bonneville, Peter Capaldi and Ben Whishaw.
He told Variety, “We have to be selective, work with strong brands, top talent, take the time we need.
“Obviously, the result on Paddington is a strong incentive to us and the partners on the movie to work on a sequel, and a strong incentive for StudioCanal to continue in this area (of ambitious family movies).”
‘Paddington’ has already earned more than $200 million at the worldwide box office, meaning it has become the highest-grossing family film released by a non-US film studio. – BANG!
