Colin Firth is apparently set to reprise his Oscar-winning role in a sequel to the acclaimed movie 'The King's Speech'.
The British actor, who scooped a Best Actor gong for his portrayal of King George VI in the 2010 period drama, has agreed to portray the King again for a follow-up set during the Blitz, according to The Sun.
The film is apparently in the "very early stages" but if it does go ahead it seems Colin's co-stars Helena Bonham Carter and Geoffrey Rush will also reprise their roles.
A source said: "The sequel is going to be about the experience of families during the Blitz. It will focus on how the privileged Royal Family was hit by the crisis, compared to the more ordinary family of George VI's speech therapist."

"The focus will be on George but it will also show how the whole royal household was affected. There's still amazing interest in the Blitz. The movie is still in the very early stages but everyone's keen to get going soon."
The first film, directed by Tom Hooper, showed the King preparing to deliver the most important speech of his life, supported by his wife Elizabeth (Bonham Carter) and speech therapist Lionel Logue (Rush).
The royal family's experiences in the Blitz were well documented, with Buckingham Palace being bombed and Elizabeth touring the bomb hit East End of London.
The original movie picked up a further three awards as well as Firth's, winning Best Picture, Best Original Screenplay and Best Director for Hooper.
