Fresh from the bowels of hell comes a movie project that screams of instant failure. That’s right folks Johnny English is back!
The James Bond-spoofing original, which was released in 2003, made $161 million worldwide, and that seems to be enough these days to convince Universal Pictures that another punt on the non-Mr.Bean Rowan Atkinson vehicle is a good idea. It’s not…
Making matter worse is the crew of the sequel. Universal and Working Title have roped in Mr. Bean’s Holiday writer Hamish McColl to pen the script, while St. Trinian’s director Oliver Parker will helm the project.
Seriously though movie folks, if you want to make a Rowan Atkinson movie please start with Blackadder.
