The sequel to The Phantom of the Opera, Love Never Dies, just opened onstage in London, and Butler was there to take it in. But that doesn't mean he's scoping it out in order to get ready to star in the big screen version. "I actually went to the opening night in London. I just happened to be there, by coincidence. I didn't plan it. It was very cool. It was a very interesting production," said Butler during the LA press conference for How to Train Your Dragon. "But, no, I don't think I'll be doing it. I doubt very much that they'll be asking me to do the sequel to The Phantom, but it was great fun to watch. It would be a long time away from making the movie."
And he also doesn't think a sequel to RocknRolla is happening anytime soon either. "I have no idea. I think that, after the success of Sherlock Holmes, Guy [Ritchie] is going to be pretty busy making parts 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7 and 8 of them. It's a shame because I loved RocknRolla."
And just a random odd tidbit that has nothing to do with his future projects: Butler was asked if he has a personal favorite among the films he's done. His answer: "[How to Train Your Dragon] is one of them, definitely. And then, maybe 300. I'm very proud of Dear Frankie, a little movie that I did."
