EMILY BLUNT AND JAMES MCAVOY ASKED TO RETURN TO PROVIDE THEIR VOICES FOR ROCKET PICTURES’ “SHERLOCK GNOMES”
2 May 2015
Rocket Pictures produced the surprisingly well received film in 2011 “Gnomeo and Juliet”. The story runs as follows: Stratford-Upon-Avon, birthplace of William Shakespeare, Miss Capulet and Mr. Montague, two garden gnomes feud over whose garden is the better. Garden gnomes continue the rivalry when the humans aren't looking, and gnomes from the Red Gardens don't get along with those of the Blue Gardens. Then Gnomeo (James McAvoy), a Blue, and Juliet (Emily Blunt), a Red, fall in love, leaving many obstacles to overcome.
The Daily Mail reports that both actors have been offered parts in the follow-up “Sherlock Gnomes” produced by Rocket Pictures and licensed by the Sir Arthur Conan Doyle Literary Estate. No contract has been finalised yet.
Ms Blunt was just at the Cannes Film Festival promoting her role as an FBI agent in Denis Villeneuve’s thriller Sicario. Meanwhile, McAvoy has been shooting the latest Marvel movie X-Men: Apocalypse.
