Nanny McPhee 2 Begins Filming In London
Mary Poppins never-be, Nanny McPhee will be back on the big screen in Nanny McPhee and the Big Bang, the sequel to the 2005 family film.
Thompson was spotted filming in London recently riding a motorbike sporting Nanny McPhee’s ugly warts and all look. The story will be set in wartime Britain, with Nanny McPhee looking after evacuated children in the countryside.
The new movie will have a mostly new cast, a few of which Emma Thompson seems to have stolen from the cast of Harry Potter. Maggie Smith and Ralph Fiennes will take the roles of Lord Gray and Mrs. Docherty as well as new additions Maggie Gyllenhaal and Rhys Ifans.
Funny man Bill Bailey will also appear, unsurprisingly, as Farmer MacReadie.
