The murderous Winnie the Pooh will be returning for the upcoming sequel which is currently in production. As reported by THR, the sequel comes with a bigger budget, more kills and even an Olivier Award-winning, BAFTA-nominated star in the form of Simon Callow (Four Weddings and a Funeral), who has joined the cast.

“Our sequel we have a substantially higher budget so Rhys is really able to create a shocking, explosive and gore-filled movie. I truly think people will really dig what we are creating.” - producer Scott Jeffrey.

There is not much known regarding the story as of yet, but writer/director Rhys Frake-Wakefield confirmed they will be leaving 100 Acre Wood.

“Bigger and Badder. The sequel will feature new creature designs, a new cast, and a high death count. However, this time Pooh and friends will be leaving the 100 Acre Wood to take their fight to the quiet community of Ashdown!”

Tallulah Evans has joined the cast and will lead the film, starring alongside Scott Chambers (Doctor Jekyll, Malpractice) as Christopher Robin, Ryan Oliva (Seasoning House) as Winnie-the-Pooh, and Peter DeSouza-Feighoney (The Pope’s Exorcist) as Young Winnie-the-Pooh. Callow stars as a character called Cavendish. In addition to Piglet and Poohbear returning, Owl will also feature within the sequel,

The screenplay for Blood and Honey 2 was written by Matt Leslie from a story he co-wrote with Rhys Frake-Waterfield.

“After speaking with Rhys and hearing his vision — his desire to push boundaries in terms of production scope, and to craft a really unique, twisty plot that also gave significant depth to the characters — I knew it was something I wanted to be a part of. They’re making something special. Something that will absolutely blow people away.” - co-writer Matt Leslie

Alongside Leslie, also joining behind the camera on the slasher sequel is Shaune Harrison (World War Z, Harry Potter, Game of Thrones) who serves as head of creature and gore designer, and Paula Anne Booker who will oversee SFX. Vince Knight returns as cinematographer. Check out the other first images below.
