Rowan Atkinson to reprise role in Johnny English 2

I really love Mr. Bean.  Rowan Atkinson is a hilarious physical comedic performer but I was a little hesitant about Johnny English when it came out in 2003.  My trepidation came mostly because we already have a successful bumbling British spy in AUSTIN POWERS.  However, I was surprised that I found the film mediocre rather than horrible.  But that doesn’t stop me from wondering why anyone would make a sequel.  Universal Pictures has announced that they will resuscitate the bumbling British spy pic with a sequel tentatively to start this August.

Universal has suffered a string of disappointments with recent adult driven serious pics like PUBLIC ENEMIES, STATE OF PLAY and GREEN ZONE.  Maybe a lighter comedic route isn’t such a bad idea. Oliver Parker (AN IDEAL HUSBAND) is on board to direct.
