They say only thing harder than making a good first film is making a great follow-up.
For ‘Mrs Brown’s Boys: D’Movie’ a sequel is already on the agenda, before the first film even airs.
Mrs Brown is set to make her silver screen debut on June 27 and a follow up film is already penciled in for 2016.
“There’s already talk of a sequel, maybe to film next year in time for a 2016 release," , manager Rory Cowan said.
“Brendan O’Carroll has been asked to do it, so it’s up to him whether he wants to, but I know he had a lot of fun doing the first film.
"It was an enjoyable experiment for all of us and he’d have no qualms about doing another one.
“Brendan hasn’t started writing it, so we’ve no idea what the squeal might be about,” he told the Irish Daily Star.
Rory, who plays Mrs Brown’s son, said that BBC Films were confident that Mrs Brown’s Boys: D’Movie would be a success.
“They’re showing it at the highest amount of cinemas so it seems they’re thinking that it will be a big film,” he explained.
After its worldwide release, crew will concentrate on the stage show and two special TV shows that will air over Christmas.
Rory said that another full series of the BBC show, that pulled in around 10 million UK viewers an episode over Christmas, was still up in the air.
“We haven’t ruled out a fourth series but that will be decided next year when Brendan is free to write it,” he explained.
