'Gnomeo & Juliet: Sherlock Gnomes' announced

By
Still from Gnomeo & Juliet
Gnomeo & Juliet: Sherlock Gnomes has been announced by Rocket Pictures.

The animated sequel will see screenwriters Andy Riley and Kevin Cecil return to the series, and Sir Elton John compose new songs for its soundtrack.

"Action detective stories need some gnomes to liven them up, I'm sure Arthur Conan Doyle would agree," said producer Steve Hamilton Shaw.

"It will be a fun, broad family film building on the popular foundation of the first. We believe the wide appeal of our world and characters combined with strong musical elements create a terrific franchise opportunity."

Gnomeo & Juliet: Sherlock Gnomes follows the ornamental detective as he joins forces with the cast of the original film to investigate a wave of gnome disappearances from England's suburban gardens.

Kelly Asbury, who helmed Gnomeo & Juliet, will oversee production but will not be returning to the director's chair. Her successor is yet to be announced.

James McAvoy and Emily Blunt are expected to reprise their leading roles, though this has not been officially confirmed.
