Rio Sequel Readying For 2014?

Sergio Mendes, whose song “Real in Rio” for the CG animated feature “Rio” has scored an Oscar nomination, says that a sequel to that film looks likely.

“Fox has been talking about (it) and it looks like it’s going to happen. We’re going to have a meeting I think next week and Carlos [Saldanha, Director] is coming to town to tell us the story, and it looks like it’s a go” he tells The Press Association.

Saldanha may also want to tie in the sequel to the 2014 World Cup which will take place in Brazil. No script or deals however are in place.
