Film producers have announced plans to produce three new Carry On comedies.
He says: "We will bring together a new team of actors, all with their own idiosyncrasies, hand-picked from the vast wealth of fine comedy actors that this country has always boasted. And you just know there will be the occasional appearance by a familiar face from the past. These will be Carry On films after all. Very much part of the series. Our first production is currently being referred to as Carry On 32."
Brian Baker adds: "As well as commissioning brand new scripts, very much in the Carry On tradition for the 21st century, we are fortunate enough to hold several scripts that Peter commissioned but never made. Me and my team are thrilled to be adding a new chapter to Peter's legacy."
The long-running, hugely successful film franchise also spawned various television series and specials, stage shows, and a wide range of merchandise.
Plans to revive the series have long been mooted, both by Rogers before his death, and by other parties since. The most recent plans, from the same team as today's new project, were announced in May2016 with BBC sitcom writers Susan Nickson and Tim Dawson attached to pen the first new script, Carry On Doctors. However, legal wrangling between the various parties involved behind the scenes brought that endeavour to a close.
Further details about the new films will be revealed in due course.
