Chris Lilley reckons he has about five different ideas for his next project.
As Summer Heights High prepares to launch in the US next week, Chris Lilley says he has come up with about five different ideas for his next project.
“It’s a matter of narrowing it down to one,” he told Sydney Morning Herald.
Lilley said he was occasionally offered roles in other TV shows and films. “Not as much as you might think, based on everyone jumping up and down about the show,” he said.
“I think people just think of me as the guy who does his own stuff. The problem I get is the people who have a script that requires a little bit of funny stuff and they think ‘Ah, funny guy, let’s get that guy’. Then you read them and they’re not very good. And I also really like focusing on my own stuff.”
As for more Ja’mie, Mr G and Jonah, Lilley again reckons “I’ve got some things that are bringing back old ones and some that are completely new ones.”
Meanwhile fans of Lilley might be interested in a repeat of the doco series Our Boys screening at 3:55am Monday November 10 on ABC1.:
Our Boys: Filipe
Follows the lives of students and teachers at Canterbury Boys High. This week we meet Filipe Mahe, a cheeky, disruptive 15-year-old from Tonga who has slipped through the net – he’s made it into Year 9 without being able to read or write. (CC, PG, Rpt)
