Mrs Brown's Boys movie delayed by drop in sterling

By Kirsty Blake Knox

Filming on Mrs Brown's Boys D'Movie 2 has stalled due to volatile post-Brexit conditions.

Creator Brendan O'Carroll has penned the script for the sequel but says filming will not take place this year as originally planned.

"We were planning to do it this year, but the numbers weren't right," O'Carroll said.

"The Brexit drop in sterling makes it a lot more expensive for the studio than it would have been previously."

D'Movie 2 is a co-production with BBC Films and London base company Penalty Kicks. The UK film industry faces many challenges due to Brexit, including funding cuts and limitations on EU theatrical distribution.
