Star of Mrs Brown’s Boys, Brendan O’Carroll has revealed that Brexit is causing problems for the production of the second Mrs Brown’s Boys movie.

The actor, who won the award for Best Male Performance at last night’s IFTA ceremony, admitted that the ramifications of Brexit have made the movie’s future uncertain.

“The likelihood was always there – the main problem is Brexit. ” he told the Irish Mirror.

“Budgets that were set for movies, set in sterling, are now worth 20% less. It’s hard to get cast and crew to work for 20% less because Britain decided to f**k off.

“There was always planning in place for a second movie but there are hoops you have to jump through,” he continued.

“They want to see the script, to see if it’s going to be a decent movie, they want to see the figures for the last movie to see if it was a success.

“Then they make an offer and there’s ins and outs.”

He went on to say that no matter what, he would only ever film the second movie in Ireland.

“I wouldn’t make it anywhere else other than Ireland. A lot TV series that make movies tend to take the cast somewhere else – like why don’t we all go to America for the laugh.” he said.

We’d love to see a second Mrs Brown’s Boys Movie!
