ROWAN ATKINSON SET FOR MR BEAN RETURN
Rowan Atkinson, known for his rib tickling comic character 'Mr Bean' is planning yet another movie with the popular character as an age old pensioner. The comedian thinks his friend and the co-creator of 'Love Actually' writer Richard Curtis has come up with the idea of featuring the character which was first featured on television 27yrs ago in his senior years. "It would be very funny to see where we can go with him as an old man and what kind of comedy we get out of it. Playing an old person can be very funny," Atkinson aka Mr Bean says. It was aired for 13 one-ff which was a silent one and its episodes aired at the end of 1955. It also had few movie adaptations, 'Bean: The Ultimate Disaster Movie' in 1997 and 2007's movie 'Mr Bean's Holiday'. An animated show is still broadcast today and Atkinson has reprised the character at the 2012 London Olympics Opening Ceremony, and two years later for a commercial.
