Director and screenwriter Zdeněk Troška is planning to begin shooting a follow-up to his popular film Babovřesky later this month. Despite being slammed by many critics, the movie has been seen by over 600,000 people in the Czech Republic and around 150,000 in Slovakia with ticket sales reaching CZK 82 million. Mr. Troška, who is known for his broad and earthy comedies, said satisfied viewers represented his “greatest Oscar”. Babovřesky 2 will be his 22nd picture.
