    I just found out about this! A sequel to Chicken Run, one of my favorite childhood movies is being made! So much has changed since then, the voice performers who played Mr. Tweedy and Fowler have passed away. RIP Tony Haygarth and Benjamin Whitrow. Also, can recent Razzie winner and general lunatic bigot Mel Gibson be cast? He voiced Rocky in the original, and while he did a great job, the original film came out in 2000, before his anti-semitic, misogynist, and racist nature was more openly revealed.

    The directors of the original Chicken Run Nick Park and Peter Lord aren’t returning to write the story or helm this new film. I hope this isn’t bad, but the most recent Aardman film Early Man was a cliched and forgettable disappointment for me. I’m mostly worried because of the new writer and director, plus the Mel Gibson situation, yet am slightly hopeful just because of the studio’s past hits, including the beloved original Chicken Run film. Seriously, WTF are they going to do about Mel Gibson?! Are they going to kill off his character and just focus on Rocky and Ginger’s kids when they are grown up and go on an adventure?

    What do you all think of this?

    Note to myself: Don’t ever feed the trolls. Don’t get involved in others drama. Don’t let myself be swayed by others predictions, trust my gut more often!

    Note to all others: If you don’t happen to like me, ignore me. It is that simple.

    I think the success of Hacksaw Ridge shows that Hollywood is okay with Mel Gibson again. I don’t think winning Razzies actually does much to hurt your career. Tom Cruise won last year, and he seems to be doing all right. Plus, didn’t Mel Gibson win the Redeemer Award from the Razzies two years ago?

    As for Chicken Run 2, I think it’s a cash grab. Early Man disappointed, so they went back to what is still the highest grossing (domestically, I don’t know about worldwide) stop-motion film of all time. I don’t have high hopes, but maybe they’ll surprise me. It just seems like Aardman peaked early and have been a mixed bag in the past decade.

    I don’t think a Chicken Run sequel can work without Park and Lord behind the scenes.

    What is the Mel Gibson situation?

    That he was nominated for every award possible as Best Director just last year? And his film too? And he was the third lead in a christmas family/comedy film just 8 months ago?

    Seems like she “situation” will be whether he wants to do it or not.

    I could live without a sequel to Chicken Run to be honest.

    There was a TON of backlash, both within the industry and in the mainstream to Mel Gibson’s Oscar nod for Hacksaw Ridge, plus he was still snubbed by DGA. Also, don’t forget him being the third lead in that Christmas movie won him a Razzie.

    I dont think Mel Gibson matters that much … they could have anyone do the voice … its not like replacing Robin williams ( which was done )
