Peter Rabbit will be up to his old tricks again, and hopefully bring more lettuce, for Sony Pictures.
HOLLYWOOD REPORTER – Off the surprise success of the CG/live-action hybrid film Peter Rabbit, Sony has announced its intent to make a sequel, dating the next installment for Feb. 7, 2020. The movie will open March 27, 2020, in the United Kingdom. Will Gluck, who directed the first movie, will return to write and direct the sequel.
The movie, which saw James Corden voice the popular character from the Beatrix Potter books and also starred Domhnall Gleeson, proved to be an under-the-radar hit when it was released Feb. 9.
The movie grossed $115 million in the U.S. and is, per Sony, the studio’s biggest-ever non-James Bond film in the U.K., with a $55.7 million gross in that country, where it held the No. 1 spot for four weeks in a row. It grossed $325 million worldwide.
