Breakthrough Preps Pair of Bruno and Boots Sequels


TORONTO: Breakthrough Entertainment’s hit film Bruno and Boots: Go Jump in the Pool is getting two new installments: This Can’t Be Happening at Macdonald Hall and The Wizzle War.

Both sequels are currently in production and are being produced by Aircraft Pictures. They are based on the popular books penned by Gordon Korman and will continue the adventures of the troublemaking duo. Meanwhile, Bruno and Boots: Go Jump in the Pool, which had its world premiere on YTV earlier this year, was recently licensed to Nickelodeon in Europe and Australia, HBO in Eastern Europe and Disney in Latin America.

“After seeing audiences embrace the first film we are thrilled with the opportunity to continue adapting Gordon Korman’s beloved work for the screen, utilizing the extensive distribution network of Breakthrough Entertainment,” said Anthony Leo, co-president of Aircraft Pictures.

“We are excited to be featuring two brand-new installments of the Bruno and Boots series,” added Craig McGillivray, the VP of distribution at Breakthrough Entertainment. “With the successful distribution of the first hit film to international markets, we look forward to the opportunity to expand on that reach with the next two films.”
