'It'll be a different direction,' says comedian Leigh Francis' alter ego
Keith Lemon has confirmed that he is currently in the process of writing a sequel to his critically-panned 2012 movie.
Keith Lemon: The Film followed the fictional title character, portrayed by Leigh Francis, as he moved from Leeds to London, beccame an overnight billionaire and began a relationship with Kelly Brook. The movie featured cameos from a raft of celebrities, including Peter Andre, Chris Moyles, Fearne Cotton, Jedward and David Hasselhoff.
Rotten Tomatoes, a well-known website that aggregates movie reviews, collected 12 assessments of the film. All 12 are negative, meaning the film has a “0% fresh” rating.
However, despite receiving a universal thumbs-down, Keith Lemon has told Digital Spy that he is planning a follow-up. “Next year I’ll be doing another film, but I’m not allowed to talk about that so I won’t,” he revealed. “But it’ll be a different direction. I know what I’m doing, but I’ve only written four pages.”
Hinting that Kelly Brook may be involved in the sequel, he added: “I’m working with Kelly on something in January next year… I thought she did a great job [on Celebrity Juice]. I thought she was fantastic and we will miss her.”
