Kung Fu Panda Sequel In Pipeline

Dreamworks is in talks to make a sequel to animated film Kung Fu Panda, the movie studio has confirmed.

Chief executive Jeffrey Katzenberg told Reuters an announcement could be made within two months.

"We've started conversations about it, and I think in the next 30 or 60 days, we'll be able to talk completely about that," he said.

Mr Katzenberg was speaking at a screening of clips from Madagascar: Escape 2 Africa, a sequel to the original 2005 movie featuring the voices of Ben Stiller and Chris Rock.

He added the company would also produce and release at least one, and possibly two, more Madagascar movies after the sequel, which is due out in November in the US and December in the UK.

Hopefully Dreamworks will have the good sense not to let the Kung Fu Panda sequel go like the Shrek ones did!
