British comedian Rowan Atkinson
insists he's unlikely to star in another Mr. Bean
movie, because he doesn't want to return to the franchise any more often than once per decade.
The 52-year-old recently starred in sequel Mr. Bean's Holiday
, which arrived 10 years after 1997's Bean
, and admits he'll probably be too old by the time he feels like starring in another follow-up.
Atkinson tells website Moviehole.net, "There are a couple of reasons (why another Mr. Bean
film is unlikely to get made). I am feeling a bit old for it actually or I think I soon will be. (And) I don't like to work very much or very often so it means to wait ten years to make a sequel is in Hollywood terms ridiculous. We would be on Bean
4 or 5 now if it was a Hollywood franchise. But because it is just something that I do when I can be bothered it only happens every ten years."
