Johnny English Reborn still happening, gets a few cast members

09.13.2010

This isn't something I really expected.

Somehow I missed the news last month that JOHNNY ENGLISH was getting a sequel. I don't remember it being too popular here, but apparently overseas it did great.

Well looks like the film has added a few cast members to the sequel, JOHNNY ENGLISH REBORN. Unfortunately there is no return yet of the incredibly sexy Natalie Imbruglia. Instead you get Gillian Anderson, Dominic West, Rosamund Pike, and newbie Daniel Kaluuya. Anderson and Pike for Imbruglia? That seems like a fair trade.

Unfortunately I did not see JOHNNY ENGLISH. I do however love Rowan Atkinson. A lot of this love due to MR. BEAN and the fact that he did the voice for Zazu in THE LION KING.

THR gave a short synopsis for the sequel: "Atkinson returns as Johnny English and finds himself embroiled in trying to stop a plot by a group of international assassins hunting down the Chinese premier." The film is being helmed by Oliver Parker (DORIAN GRAY, OTHELLO) with a script from Hamish McColl and William Davies. It will shoot for 13 weeks in the UK and Hong Kong.

Johnny English was watchable (far more than any Epic, Dancing, Disaster, Whatever Movie). But I've always loved Atkinson FAR more as the Black Adder than as Mr Bean!

Loved Johnny English- the car chase when the car was on the lift was the best

The first film was terrible. I did not laugh once. Okay wait, there was the part where he danced on the coffin which was pretty funny. It was a bit of a weird experience watching it at the cinema, me and my mates were sitting there sighing and clock watching but the near-full audience was eating it up. The coffin dancing segment was the only time we laughed, and of course that time we were the only ones laughing. It felt like we were truly watching a completely different movie. Or maybe we were

Or maybe we were in the wrong seats. I dunno.

It had the potential to be fun though, it just really needs a much better script.

I thought the first one was decent enough, but I'm really surprised that this gets a sequel.

First was forgettable, but I might catch this on tv one day. Interesting to see Pike in this Bond spoof, since she was a Bond girl herself. It would be cool if Dalton or Brosnon got a cameo.

You're treating it as it's like a franchise or something.

If you like Mr. Bean...

If I recall correctly, Johnny English was very much an "if Mr. Bean were a spy" movie. It was pretty forgettable, IMO, but if you liked Mr. Bean, go ahead and rent it. You'll probably enjoy it. I did, even if it didn't really stick with me.
