The Second Best Exotic Marigold Hotel Earns a Silver Medal

The Second Best Exotic Marigold Hotel Earns a Silver Medal
Almost immediately after it was released, the 2012 stealth hit Best Exotic Marigold Hotel became more a punchline than a movie. Who knew “older” people were so starved for pictures featuring gorgeously shot exotic locales, not to mention people falling in love, falling out of love, or desperately hoping for love, all while dealing with assorted problems related not just to aging but to life itself? Directed by Shakespeare in Love’s John Madden and based on the novel These Foolish Things, by Deborah Moggach, the first Marigold Hotel attracted a staunchly adult audience, apparently made up of women in particular. Naturally, then, it was s...

With a cast that included Judi Dench, Bill Nighy, Tom Wilkinson, and Downton Abbey's Maggie Smith and Penelope Wilton, 2011's The Best Exotic Marigold Hotel was stacked to brim with English charm, not to mention some of the nation's most stellar senior stars.

Ol Parker learns 'everything will be all right' with 'Best Exotic Marigold Hotel'

Ol Parker learns 'everything will be all right' with 'Best Exotic Marigold Hotel'
Ol Parker knew he had his work cut out when adapting Deborah Moggach's 2004 novel "These Foolish Things" into “Best Exotic Marigold Hotel.” As he told Gold Derby, “When you’re writing a script with nine different storylines, the challenge is in keeping the audience interested. The cast helped tremendously with that. But then the challenge is in getting them.” -Insertgroups:8- But Parker, who just turned 43, couldn’t resist the idea of writing, “a romantic comedy for old people. It was so endearing to me to think of people in their 60s and 70s being as fumbling and awkward as people in their 20s. What appealed to me about this story was that it wasn’t old people doing old people things. Nor was it old people doing young people things. It was just old people being people.” The film centers around seven British retirees -- Judi Dench, Maggie Smith,

Consider this as a huge rumor, but at least admit that it sounds great! Not just because The Best Exotic Marigold Hotel is finally getting a sequel, but because some seriously good (and you already see how good in our title) cast could come on board! Helen Mirren and Colin Firth are apparently in talks to join previously announced Judi Dench, Maggie Smith, Dev Patel and Bill Nighy. Yeah, take the original cast and add two great names to the list and you get what? The perfect sequel, exactly!

A month ago we revealed that Ol Parker is once again on board to pen the script for a follow-up to the original film. Now, there are rumors that director John Madden will return to direct the sequel as well.

But that’s not all. According to the latest reports, Madden and Parker are looking for an American actress possibly to round out the cast,

Fox Searchlight Greenlights Sequel to 'Best Exotic Marigold Hotel'

It looks like the charming geriatric tale The Best Exotic Marigold Hotel gets the honor of being one of those rare comedies that gets a sequel. Movie Scope has learned the 2011 film from director John Madden and writer Ol Parker has a greenlit follow-up in development at Fox Searchlight. Based on Deborah Moggach's novel These Foolish Things, the film followed a group of British retirees - composed of British talents like Judi Dench, Tom Wilkinson, Maggie Smith and Bill Nighy - who decide to take their retirement to less the expensive and exotic India at the restore Marigold Hotel that has since fallen apart. Parker will return to script the sequel (though there's no book for it to be based on this time), but it's not clear if Madden will return to direct.

The Best Exotic Marigold Hotel Gets Sequel

In case you loved The Best Exotic Marigold Hotel movie, I’m sure you’re going to love this short update.

The sequel to a 2011 British comedy directed by John Madden is definitely coming, and the good thing is that Ol Parker is once again behind the story! What also sounds good is that the original cast is more than interested in the whole thing as well.

And, just in case you’re not so familiar with the first movie, I will inform you that Judi Dench, Bill Nighy and Dame Maggie Smith were all the part of the story which centered on a group of British retirees who decide to “outsource” their retirement to less expensive and seemingly exotic India.

At this moment, we have no idea whether John Madden will return to direct the sequel, but, as we mentioned at the beginning, Ol Parker is said to be

DVD Review: 'The Best Exotic Marigold Hotel'

★★★★☆ A sterling British cast, including Judi Dench, Bill Nighy, Maggie Smith and Tom Wilkinson, ensure that John Madden's The Best Exotic Marigold Hotel (2011) has the feel-good factor without the cloying sentimentality of some romantic comedies. Based on Deborah Moggach's novel These Foolish Things, six English OAPs arrive in the Indian city of Jaipur in a bid to avoid stagnating in Britain. They are joined by Muriel (Smith) who has reluctantly travelled abroad for a hip operation.

The Best Exotic Marigold Hotel Blu-Ray Review

Director: John Madden

Starring: Judi Dench, Maggie Smith, Tom Wilkinson, Bill Nighy, Dev Patel, Celia Imrie, Penelope Wilton, Ronald Pickup

Certificate: 12

Running Time: 118 minutes

Extras: Behind The Story: Lights, Colours and Smiles

The term ‘one for Grandma’ is one that I can’t say has ever appealed to me, mainly because I’m not a Grandma; however there is quite the market for this kind of stuff and The Best Exotic Marigold Hotel is very keen to capitalise on this. Under the assured, experienced eye of Director John Madden (Shakespeare In Love, The Debt) the ensemble cast including Judi Dench, Tom Wilkinson, Maggie Smith and Bill Nighy are all playing staple characters of this kind of film so there seems to be little to draw us youngsters in, but with that cast it’s surely something a bit different, no?

Review: The Best Exotic Marigold Hotel

Movie reviewers love surprises. We watch so many movies that it is hard to tolerate the routine and predictable. This is why some of us (okay, I mean myself) have the bad habit of starting too many positive reviews with the phrase "pleasant surprise." We delight in unexpected plot twists and non-standard endings, sometimes to the point where we overrate movies with these qualities.

I was lukewarm about The Best Exotic Marigold Hotel because after I read the press release, I felt it would hold no surprises for me whatsoever. I could predict the whole damn movie, and probably my review as well. A bunch of older British people with drab, unsatisfying lives move to India where they would be shocked and dismayed at first, but gradually would see the beauty of life and the wonders of the universe. Someone would fall in love, someone would find an unexpected friend,

Special Report: The Best Exotic Marigold Hotel New York Press Conference

Based in India, the film adaption of the novel, ‘These Foolish Things’ by Deborah Moggach, The Best Exotic Marigold Hotel shows a story of seven English retirees moving to India in hopes of a better (and cheaper!) life where they can rediscover themselves in a foreign land. There to welcome them at this falsely advertised grand retirement palace, which in fact is a rundown home, is managed by young, energetic, and blissfully in denial young man, Sonny (Dev Patel). Though the retirees all come for their own personal reasons, they all join together to become a family of sorts in a foreign land. Through comedy, drama and romance, The Best Exotic Marigold Hotel is a wonderful journey through India with the perfect blend of experienced (Judi Dench, Maggie Smith, Tom Wilkinson, Bill Nighy, Celia Imrie, Penelope Winton, Donald Pickup, Dev Patel, Tena Desae) and inexperienced actors guided by the Academy Award nominated director,
