It’s not often a sequel is planned 25 years after the original, but John Boorman is planning a follow-up to his 1987 movie Hope And Glory, with Actor Caleb Landry Jones (X-Men: First Class, Contraband) is in negotiations to star, according to Variety.
The original drama followed nine-year-old Bill Rowan growing up in London during the blitzkrieg of World War II. The sequel, which will be called Queen And Country, follows a grown-up Rowan (Caleb Landry Jones) who gets shipped off to serve in the Korean War.
John Boorman has also written the screenplay and plans to shoot the movie in London, although an exact start date hasn’t been determined yet. This will be John Boorman’s first directorial effort since The Tiger’s Tail in 2006.
