Sequel to Mrs Brown's Boys D'Movie delayed by Brexit vote

Mrs Brown's Boys creator Brendan O'Carroll has revealed that the decision by the UK to leave the European Union has delayed production on a sequel to Mrs. Brown's Boys D'Movie

The movie spin-off from the hugely successful comedy was released into cinemas in 2014 and grossed over £20 million at the box office, but while O'Carroll says a sequel is coming, Brexit has meant it won't be for a while. 

He told The Sun when asked about a sequel: "We were planning to do it this year but the numbers weren’t right. The Brexit drop in Sterling makes it a lot more expensive for the studio than it would have been previously. They will wait until the Pound stabilises before they make any plans."

He continued: "The plot and outline are there and ready to go. We know what’s going to happen and how we’re going to do it. “That’s the only way you can price it and make a budget. Other than that it’s just a question of, ‘Are we going or not going?’. We need ten months notice on that and so far there’s nothing."
