Black Mirror series 3: Charlie Brooker confirms at least two more episodes
9 January 2014
Charlie Brooker has promised more Black Mirror, saying that two ‘helpings’ of the Channel 4 drama are on the way.
The Weekly Wipe host said he couldn’t be specific on details, but intimated that there would be another two dark and dystopian stories, though the show has previously come in threes.
‘There will be more – I don’t think I’m allowed to say quite when,’ Brooker told Lauren Laverne on her BBC Radio 6Music show).
‘There’s going to be some and then there’s going to be some more – you’ll get one helping and then there’ll be another helping.’
Robert Downey Jr purchased the rights to 2011 episode The Entire History of You last year, but Brooker said he remains in the dark over RDJ’s plans for it.
‘I’m not really involved in that – that was Jesse Armstrong’s episode,’ he added. ‘People always mention that, like I’m now best mates with Robert Downey Jr. I’ve never met him!’
Brooker said he was ‘not adverse’ to further film adaptations though, explaining: ‘We’ve had all sorts of conversations along those lines. ‘They’re high-concept ideas and that’s the sort of thing that lends itself to being remade as a film.’
