Colin Firth to return for The King’s Speech 2
The actor is said to have signed up to a sequel to the Oscar winning film.
It is not the kind of film you expect to have a sequel, but it looks like Colin Firth could be set to reprise his King’s Speech role in a new film about King George VI.
The sequel to the Oscar-winning movie is thought to be going into production, with Helena Bonham Carter and Geoffrey Rush once again returning in their respective roles in a plotline that will be set during the Blitz.
Rather than focusing on the King’s struggle with his stammer, the film will examine the differences between the lives of George and his speech therapist during the War.
Talking about the project, a source said, “The sequel is going to be about the experience of families during the Blitz. It will focus on how the privileged Royal Family was hit by the crisis, compared to the more ordinary family of George VI’s speech therapist.
“The focus will be on George, but it will also show how the whole royal household was affected. There’s still amazing interest in the Blitz. The movie is still in the very early stages, but everyone’s keen to get going soon.”
Director Tobe Hooper is also expected to return to helm the movie.
