RIO sequel a possibility, says Sergio Mendes


RIO sequel a possibility, says Sergio Mendes

According to Brazilian musician Sergio Mendes, a sequel to last year’s animated, avian-centric hit “Rio” is likely to happen. Mendes remembers the movie fondly because he co-wrote the film’s song “Real in Rio”, which earned him an Oscar nomination in the Best Song category.

Mendes told AP that Carlos Saldanha (Rio’s director) may tie the sequel to the 2014 World Cup, which will be hosted by Brazil.

“I think the plan is for the movie to come three or four months before the World Cup,” said Mendes. “Fox has been talking about [it] and it looks like it’s going to happen. We’re going to have a meeting I think next week and Carlos is coming to tell us the story, and it looks like it’s a go.”

A spokesperson for Fox confirmed the company was interested in turning Rio into a franchise but said no deals had been made at present.
