100 years and still going strong
The 100-Year-Old Man Who Climbed Out The Window And Disappeared is set for a sequel to begin filming in the summer. However, the script is still incomplete and an ending has yet to be decided. Robert Gustafsson, who plays the 100-year-old Allan Karlsson, said to Swedish evening newspaper Expressen, “We’ll see what track we go down, what turns the story takes … it’s still open.”
The 100-Year-Old Man 2, written by Hans Ingemansson, is said to continue the story a year after the first film ends, with Allan Karlsson and his friends still in Bali. His next adventure takes him around the world and back to Sweden during which time he is chased by the CIA, a Balinese debt collector and becomes an executive at a soft drink company. “There is no final script as yet,” continues Gustafsson. “But we hope we can gain back the time in April … but Moscow is certain, there will be a lot of Russia. And the CIA are always fun.”
