Get Ready for the Return of ... "Bean"

You knew it was only a matter of time before Rowan Atkinson came back with another "Mr. Bean" movie. (Anyone out there see Johnny English? Sheesh.) And today Variety reports that a production date is set for Bean 2, which will be distributed stateside by Universal Pictures. (Did you know that the first Bean made over $230 million worldwide? Strange but true.)

From Variety: "Steve Bendelack, who made his feature directing debut with last year's TV spinoff "The League of Gentlemen's Apocalypse," will direct "Bean II" for Working Title Films.

Sequel to the 1997 hit "Bean: The Ultimate Disaster Movie" will once again star Rowan Atkinson. It starts shooting May 15.

Pic finds the hapless Mr. Bean traveling to the South of France on holiday, causing the usual mayhem and ending with an unscheduled screening of his video diary at the Cannes Film Festival."
