Recommended Posts

Andy Riley and Kevin Cecil, who wrote the first film, are writing the movie. Elton John is in the middle of composing new songs for the movie. Elton's production company, Rocket Pictures, is producing the movie with Elton executive producing. Production begins this fall, in the midst of selecting a director. The original's director Kelly Asbury will be a creative consultant.

Synopsis: When gnomes start disappearing from the suburban gardens of England, Gnomeo, Juliet and friends enlist the help of Sherlock Gnomes, ‘the greatest ornamental detective,’ to track the culprit. Unfortunately, Sherlock is neither as brilliant nor as insightful as his human counterpart, and as the crimes against gnomanity continue, the threat to their world becomes bigger than they ever imagined.

WHAT THE ****?Happy Feet 2 like drop. Calling it now. Maybe even worse. Seems producers still don't understand what makes a sequel good. Sherlock Gnomes? Holy hell, what is the world coming to.

With a more absurd pun in the title, will it really sell as well?I haven't seen the first one and don't really care to. Doesn't mean I think it looks bad. Nor am I saying this will be and/or look bad.I'm just petrified of more of the inevitable pun-filled marketing.

It has the Hoodwinked 2 vibe but you know it can still surprise us if they get a good release date like the first one did, the budget should be minimal.

Surprised it took them this long to announce a sequel. A release date with little to no competition should bring decent numbers but otherwise less 50m total for this one.
