Miranda Hart is reportedly planning a film version of her popular BBC sitcom.
The first two series of Miranda aired on BBC Two and the show became known for its old-fashioned studio style and memorable pratfalls. For its third series, which begins later this year (2012), Miranda has been been moved up to BBC One.
According to The Sun, the end of the new series will lead directly to a big screen spin-off. A source apparently told the tabloid: “Miranda has been a really popular show and production companies have been floating ideas about making a film for a while. The third series sets a movie up perfectly, which is something she has always wanted to do. She would keep all the stars of the sitcom on board, and get some of her famous friends in for cameo roles too.”
Speculating on Hart’s motives for making a movie, the source apparently added: “The idea of casting a film has really got her excited – there’s a long list of men she quite fancies finding love with. And there is a lot of money in it. The DVDs of the TV series have done brilliantly, so it’s a good bet for backers.”
Meanwhile, Hart has recently published her first autobiography, titled Is It Just Me?. She has already won four British Comedy Awards for Miranda and also stars in popular BBC period drama Call The Midwife.
