James McAvoy: Gnomeo and Juliet sequel gets green light

After the surprise success of animated film Gnomeo and Juliet, a sequel has unsurprisingly been announced Rocket Pictures.

Gnomeo and Juliet : Sherlock Gnomes will be released sometime in 2013/2014, and stars Emily Blunt and James McAvoy are expected to reprise their titular roles in the new film.

Sir Elton John will once again write new songs for the soundtrack, while a director is yet to assigned to the project.

Producer Steve Hamilton said, “Action detective stories need some gnomes to liven them up, I'm sure Arthur Conan Doyle would agree. It will be a fun, broad family film building on the popular foundation of the first. We believe the wide appeal of our world and characters combined with strong musical elements create a terrific franchise opportunity."

The plot centres on a gnome version of the famous Baker Street detective investigating a series of gnome disappearances.
