Sergio Mendes, who scored an Oscar nomination for his song Real In Rio, says the animated film will most likely have a sequel. Mendes said Rio director Carlos Saldanha may want to tie the sequel to the 2014 World Cup, which will take place in Brazil. “I think the plan is for the movie to come three or four months before the World Cup,” Mendes said Tuesday afternoon. “Fox has been talking about (it) and it looks like it’s going to happen,” he continued. “We’re going to have a meeting I think next week and Carlos is coming to town to tell us the story, and it looks like it’s a go.” Fox said in an email Wednesday that the “success of the first film was the start of a franchise,” but added that “no script or deals” are in place.
