After hiding out for the past nine years, Mr. Bean (Rowan Atkinson) is finally making his way back to the big screen. You would think that, with the first Bean film grossing $240 million worldwide, a second Bean flick would have come along a lot sooner, right?
Wrong. Bean does what he wants, when he wants, and if you don't like that attitude then, um, don't watch him. The new film will follow Bean as he travels across the south of France on holiday. Along the way, he will document his ridiculous exploits via some sort of video journal. Somehow, toward the end, his journey will culminate with an unscheduled screening of his video diary at the Cannes Film Festival.
The film will begin shooting on May 15 in France and continue through the end of the festival. Oohh, seeing as Cinematical's own James Rocchi and Karina Longworth will be attending the festival, here's hoping the two of them slide into a sweet cameo role. Perhaps Karina would be interested in playing Bean's love interest? Sounds awfully romantic to me -- what do you think?
