Michael Jai White has revealed he's already started work on Black Dynamite 2.
The first film has only just hit UK screens, but the US actor, who co-wrote and starred in it, is already keen to kick off the sequel.
"Oh, absolutely, I've had the idea for Black Dynamite 2 for quite a while now, and it's gonna start where Black Dynamite left off - there's lots of things we didn't get a chance to do in the first one," he said.
"You know how Black Dynamite just grows in ridiculousness? Well, this will be a fitting sequel," he promised.
Black Dynamite is a spoof on blaxploitation movies of the 70s and Michael hopes it will be a hit.
"It's got this cult thing going on for sure," he said.
"There are theatres in the US that have committed to showing it for an entire year and there are people showing up to screenings in 70s regalia, quoting lines from the movie, which makes us quite proud. It feels really great to be called Black Dynamite, because that's something I created."
Michael was inspired after listening to James Brown's Superbad.
"I'd grown up seeing these blaxploitation movies as a child, and I thought they were quite funny - but they also had a spirit to them," he explained.
"The movies back then, they were so politically charged, they were so sexually open. It was a lively time. So I thought I would like to do a throwback type of movie."
