Winnie the Pooh: Blood and Honey apparently had a working spending plan of around $100,000. With the current ticket office success of the movie in Mexico along with the mainly favorable action from audiences throughout America, a follow up is now in advancement. The follow up is stated to have a much bigger spending plan than the very first movie.
Film director Rhys Frake-Waterfield exposed to Entertainment Weekly just how much it would require to keep the follow up running. The writer-director stated, “Number two is already going into development. I’m hoping that, at minimum, it’s going to have five times the budget of the first one, but it could be substantially more than that as well, which would do absolute wonders for the film.”
He continued, “That’s one of the major challenges. It’s competing with films like M3GAN [and] they are made on orders of magnitude more. When you have more money for a film, you get more time, you get cooler scenes, you can really spend more time refining things. So I’m really excited for what the second film’s going to do.”
Although the movie just got an extremely low ranking of 6% amongst the critics on Rotten Tomatoes, the movie got fairly great evaluations from the audience rating with 59%. Despite the relatively effective run of the movie up until now, not one streaming service has an interest in streaming the movie.
Rhys Frake-Waterfield Plans to Make More Horror Films Based on Children’s Books
Rhys Frake-Waterfield is set to destroy more youth memories as he prepares to make more scary stories based upon other kids’s books. Apart from the follow up of Winnie the Pooh: Blood and Honey, the writer-director is presently dealing with a story based upon the white-tailed deer Bambi.
The director even more exposed, “Yeah, Bambi’s coming. Bambi. Pooh 2. [But] I’m looking to find other concepts and other retellings which aren’t just IP. Then I’ll see the next one I’m going to get fully attached to. Because even though those projects, Bambi and Pooh 2, are happening, it doesn’t necessarily mean I’ll direct them.”
He continued, “I may just be involved, and produce them, and get them moving, but there might be one of these other ideas which I think could do incredibly well, and I think I could give a lot to that project and that concept. So I may get drawn to one of them. I’m still in the stages of thinking about that at the moment.”
