Universal Pictures has announced plans to move forward with sequels for both “Ted” and “Bourne”.
NBCUniversal CEO Steve Burke told The Hollywood Reporter that the studio hoped to move ahead with a follow-up to Seth MacFarlane's hit comedy “Ted” about a magical, trash-talking teddy bear "as soon as we can."
The film made nearly $400 million worldwide.
Meanwhile, the studio has also committed to developing a fifth in the “Bourne” franchise.
There is no official word on the story but “Bourne” producer Frank Marshall did tease some ideas in an interview with Coming Soon earlier this year.
"We're gonna follow Jeremy's character. Everything else is wide open. That's the great thing about this now. The table is set to go any direction we want to. But we will, I'm sure, follow Jeremy and see what happens. Jeremy and Rachel [Weisz]."
The studio enjoyed great success with their animated co-productions with Illumination Entertainment, “Despicable Me” and “The Lorax”, and has, as such, made a commitment to increase production on their animated endeavors as well.
We will keep you updated as details on these projects emerge.
