Blueprint Pictures' Graham Broadbent said: " What are the odds of being able to re-assemble this extraordinary group of actors and film makers, let alone to add to their number?

"We found a worldwide audience we never dreamed of for the first, and we feel very lucky to have the chance now to bring them this companion film."

The original film, released in 2012, was a surprise hit earning more than £82 million at the box office worldwide having been made for around £6 million.
