Hugh Grant to star in 'Paddington 2'

Press Trust of India  |  Los Angeles 

British star Hugh Grant has joined the sequel to the 2014 hit "Paddington".

Brendan Gleeson will also be a part of the sequel, whose shooting is currently underway.



Grant will be seen in the role of a vain, charming acting legend whose star has fallen somewhat in recent years, according to the Hollywood Reporter.

Gleeson, meanwhile, will play the role of a notorious safe-cracker and strongman who becomes Paddington's unexpected ally.

The story will see the Peruvian bear embark on a series of odd jobs to buy a book for Aunt Lucy's 100th birthday. But when

the book is stolen, it's up to Paddington and the Browns to unmask the thief.

Ben Whishaw again voices the famous bear while Imelda Staunton is voicing Aunt Lucy.

Hugh Bonneville, Sally Hawkins, Julie Walters, Jim Broadbent, Peter Capaldi, Madeleine Harris and Samuel Joslin all return from the first CGI live-action outing.

David Heyman is again producing with Paul King back in the director's chair.

The movie was a surprise hit in 2014, amassing more than USD 270 million internationally.
