Elton John pottering away on another Gnomeo & Juliet

That terrific little ceramic comedy “Gnomeo & Juliet”, produced by Elton John’s Rocket Pictures, is going the sequel route.

Deadline says “Gnomeo & Juliet : Sherlock Gnomes” will feature all new songs by John, which he’s currently composing; the first film’s scribes Andy Riley and Kevin Cecil are back on scripting duties.

Kelly Asbury won’t be returning as director – Rocket are currently looking for a helmer – but will stay on as a creative consultant.

When gnomes start disappearing from the suburban gardens of England, Gnomeo, Juliet and friends enlist the help of Sherlock Gnomes, “the greatest ornamental detective,” to track the culprit. Unfortunately, Sherlock is neither as brilliant nor as insightful as his human counterpart, and as the crimes against gnomanity continue, the threat to their world becomes bigger than they ever imagined.

“Action detective stories need some gnomes to liven them up, I’m sure Arthur Conan Doyle would agree,” said Rocket’s principal Steve Hamilton Shaw. “It will be a fun, broad family film building on the popular foundation of the first. We believe the wide appeal of our world and characters combined with strong musical elements create a terrific franchise opportunity.”
