The hit BBC television series Blackadder has been a huge success, gaining new fans every year, despite the fact that the last we saw was the Millenium special in 1999. However, there are now plans for a Blackadder movie, which would take a Dad's Army style spin on the series.
Blackadder producer John Lloyd said of the movie, "Rowan and I had this great idea, because we are all getting a bit old, of doing a kind of Dad’s Army. They are a platoon in Walmington-on-Sea where they get kidnapped by a German submarine and taken to Colditz. They then have to escape."
He added, "Because Tony Robinson is probably very near 70 now he would be just about the right age. We’d do it as a Blackadder – it would make a good movie, I think."
It is a given that Rowan Atkinson would return and Tony Robinson has expressed his interest in a Blackadder movie in the past, but who else could we see from the Blackadder team? One actor that we would love to return in Tim McInnerny, who was a regular in the Blackadder series. Other names from the Blackadder series include Hugh Laurie, Stephen Fry and Rick Mayal.
