Mike Bassett sequel confirmed, fans can appear in film

Filming will begin next year for the sequel to Mike Bassett: England Manager.

A sequel to the football film Mike Bassett: England Manager has been confirmed and filming will begin next year.

Mike Bassett: Interim Manager will see Ricky Tomlinson again take up the lead role as Bassett and for this film, fans can help contribute to its production.

For £5 you will receive a selection of audio files with some of Bassett's best-loved phrases from the first movie, while the top reward on offer is a speaking role in the film if you contribute £5,000.

"It was an easy decision for me to play Mike again," said Tomlinson. "Who wouldn't want to be England manager without all the stress of actually having the job?

"Whenever I speak to football fans there's such affection for Bassett that it's hard to ignore the demand."

Premier League stars Wayne Rooney and Steven Gerrard are two players that Bassett wants to appear with in the film.

There are several other rewards and gifts for amounts in between £5 and £5,000 and you find out more about funding the film with Kickstarter by clicking here.
