Originally, a third film about the popular children's book character Paddington Bear was supposed to be released at the end of last year. As so often happens behind the scenes, however, they could not bring themselves to begin production and so the project was put on hold for an indefinite period of time. As Variety now reports, though, those responsible at StudioCanal have finally given the green light, as actor Hugh Bonneville also confirmed in a radio interview. Paul King, the screenwriter and director of the two predecessors, announced on this occasion that he would no longer be directly involved on the set and would instead take on the role of producer. Those involved are still silent about further information on "Paddington 3", but King at least shared that with the end of the current script, there was still plenty of room for further sequels. Either way, we are excited and we look forward to hearing more news about "Paddington 3."
