Moviegoers who stayed for the credits during the romantic comedy Something Borrowed in its opening weekend at the US box office got a bonus - a tease for a possible sequel starring Kate Hudson and John Krasinski.

Something Borrowed, based on the best-selling novel of the same name by Emily Giffin, is about a young woman, played by Ginnifer Goodwin, who falls for her best friend's fiance.

Giffin wrote a follow-up book called Something Blue, which continues the story from the perspective of the best friend, portrayed by Kate.

John plays a long-time friend of Ginnifer and Kate's characters.

The extra scene at the end of the credits over the weekend showed Kate and John in London with the text "to be continued".

In a recent interview, Giffin said producers didn't have a finished script for Something Blue but she had "full optimism" the second movie would be made. She said the chemistry between Krasinski and Hudson "is fantastic".

At the film's press junket in Los Angeles last month, John said: "I would definitely do the sequel if they did it. I think we're waiting to see. Hopefully it happens."

Kate agreed, saying: "I think most likely we will do one."

Warner Bros said a decision about another film hasn't been made.
