The Carry On series will be back before the cameras in 2020, it seems.
Further to news that broke over the summer, plans are now being cemented for a revival of the Carry On series of comedy movies.
31 films in the series were made between 1958’s Carry On Sergeant and 1991’s Carry On Columbus, and since then, there have been assorted rumours of a revival, none of which came to fruition.
This time, Carry On Films Ltd has been set up, headed up by a man called Brian Baker. He’s an old friend of the late Carry On producer Peter Rogers, and in a statement reported by Comedy.co.uk, he’s revealed that he was left the exclusive rights to make future films in the series by Rogers.
As such, he has the scripts for several unmade Carry On films from Rogers’ era, that will be referred to. But he also notes that new scripts are being commissioned “very much in the Carry On tradition for the 21st century”.
Just who that team is? Well that’s unclear thus far. But the idea is now to make three new films, and to shoot them back to back. Production would start on the first of these films in the spring on next year.
As we get more information on stars, directors and writers, we’ll let you know.
