[Movies] Colin Firth To Star In Sequel To The King's Speech
Posted by Joseph Lee on 09.24.2012



The Sun reports that Colin Firth has agreed to reprise his role of stuttering King George VI for a sequel to The King's Speech, which earned him multiple awards including an Academy Award for Best Actor.

Helena Bonham Carter, who played George's wife Queen Elizabeth and Geoffrey Rush, who played his speech therapist, are wanting to return along with director Tom Hooper.

The sequel will be set during World War II's Blitz. 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."

Firth also won awards at the Baftas, Golden Globes, Screen Actors Guild Awards and others for the first film, which itself won three Oscars for Best Picture, Best Screenplay and Best Director, along with best supporting actor nominations for Rush and Bonham Carter.

The original made $414 million from a budget of $15 million.
