Richard E. Grant says a Withnail & I sequel will never happen

"There is no more story"

Richard E. Grant has put an official end to rumours that a Withnail & Isequel could one day happen.

The '80s indie comedy is a cult classic, and fans have long hoped for Grant and his co-star Paul McGann to return to the roles, but Grant has nixed the idea.

During a chat with the star to promote his seedy new gangster thriller Dom Hemingway, we questioned Grant on reprising his Withnail role.

But the answer was a resounding no, noting that the writer and director Bruce Robinson feels there's 'no more story' after the man upon whom Withnail was based passed away.

Watch Grant chat Withnail & I 2 below, and then let us know if you would have loved to have seen a sequel in the comments!

Dom Hemingway is in UK cinemas from 15 November 2013.

      Withnail and I is a perfect film. It doesn't need a sequel. It doesn't need adding to. Simple as that.

      great idea! we should also make Harold And Maude in to a trilogy. A Schindler's List sequel would be really cool too. I am being sarcastic.
