It’s not even out yet, but if successful then Ridley Scott’s upcoming “Robin Hood” at Universal Pictures could get the sequel treatment.
Scott tells The Times Online that as this is essentially an origin movie, we really don’t see Robin in full flight until the last act. Scott says the film “is the beginnings of how the man becomes known as Robin the Hood. You don’t really get that until the last few minutes. When you realise that ‘Ah, this is who he is’. Let’s say we might presume there’s a sequel.”
So if one were to be made, what would it be about? “Honestly, I thought why not have the potential for a sequel, particularly if it is a genre that you absolutely love and has never been fully explored? If there were to be a sequel to Robin Hood, you would have a constant enemy throughout, King John, and you would follow his reign of 17 years, and the signing of Magna Carta could be Robin’s final act” says Scott.
Meanwhile io9 reports that a sequel to last year’s CG-animated comedy “Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs” is already in production.
Based on “Pickles to Pittsburgh”, the second in Judi Barrett’s book series, the story has the residents of Chewandswallow working to send the flood of food from the first adventure out to hungry people around the world.
Phil Lord and Chris Miller, who helmed the first film, will not be returning as directors but will work on the script.
