Who needs a superhero when you have a.. Johnny English? Universal and Working Title have just dropped the first trailer for newly titled Johnny English Strikes Again. The third installment in the lucrative franchise which will see British spy English (played by Rowan Atkinson) take his very particular set of anti-skills to the south of France following a major cyber attack.
The new adventure begins when a cyber-attack reveals the identity of all active undercover agents in Britain, leaving English as the Secret Service’s last hope.

Producers are Tim Bevan, Eric Fellner and Chris Clark while Atkinson is joined in the cast by Ben Miller, Olga Kurylenko, Emma Thompson and Jake Lacy. Pic rolls out from October.
