Maggie Gyllenhaal will star opposite Emma Thompson, Rhys Ifans, and Maggie Smith in Nanny McPhee and the Big Bang, the forthcoming sequel to the 2006 family romp Nanny McPhee.
Thompson will reprise her role as the governess with magic powers, crooked teeth, and a hairy mole, in addition to writing the script and executive producing the film. Nanny McPhee and the Big Bang is scheduled to shoot this summer. Ralph Fiennes may even have an uncredited cameo in the film and is currently negotiating that deal. The sequel's plot will revolve around a group of children who are evacuated from the city to a farm during wartime.
