Rumours had been doing the rounds that the world’s biggest boyband were planning a sequel to last year’s cinema hit.
Now director Morgan Spurlock has confirmed the bankable band have already started filming. And this time the boys are aiming for an Oscar for their efforts – for Best Song.
Chatting exclusively at Mario Batali’s Vegas Uncork’d party, Spurlock said: “Yes, there will be a follow-up to This Is Us.
“At this moment Ben Winston is with the band on their world tour filming what happens.”He worked with me and is a great producer.
“I know Simon Cowell wants the band to get awards for this and was upset when they missed out on being nominated in the music category for an Oscar on our film.
“It was a good song and I was surprised that they weren’t even considered. “This time he will want them to try again.”
Last year’s This Is Us earned £40million at the box office worldwide, with £18million in the US alone.
And it earned millions more in DVD sales.
It sold a massive 270,000 copies in the first three days of release in the UK, becoming the fastest-selling music release ever.
