Gerard Butler, Roger Deakins Return For How to Train Your Dragon 2

How to Train Your Dragon 2 Empire Online is reporting that the last holdout actor Gerard Butler has signed on as well, and cinematographer Roger Deakins will once more be on board to direct the lighting work. Gerard Butler, which Coriolanius premiered at at Berlinale Palace on Monday, has been returnted as well as most of the original cast including: Jay Baruchel as Hiccup; Craig Ferguson as Belch; America Ferrera as Astrid; Christopher Mintz-Plasse as Fishlegs; Jonah Hill as Snotlout; TJ Miller as Ruffnut and Kristen Wiig as Tuffnut. The production team will once again be under guidance of Roger Deakins, the famed cinematographer who consulted on lighting for the first film as well as Pixar’s Wall-E, and recently becoming a BAFTA winner for True Grit, too! How To Train Your Dragon was indisputably one of the best animated films of last year, even if Toy Story 3 keeps popping up on the Best Animated prizes this awards season. So we bring you the latest news on How To Train Your Dragon 2, with Canadian director Dean DeBlois approving that all is developing well:
What I presented to them was the second act of a much larger story. So the film takes on much more breadth, it’s really quite epic. We leave the first film with these Vikings on the backs of dragons, so the world just opens up and expands exponentially.”
It’s going to be quite epic. The world expands and everything is much bigger with still the genuine qualities. There are no longer limits to this tiny island in the North Sea. They have the entire Northern hemisphere. The only way of tracing the storyline is to draw on elements that were in the first movie and set up elements for a third movie, so it doesn’t feel like generating a random adventure with the same five or six characters. How To Train Your Dragon 2, or whatsoever they decide to call it, is set for a release in the summer 2013. The director DeBlois gave the info to Empire and you can see a vid of him talking about the film
