Mel Gibson Will Not Be Back For 'Chicken Run 2'

Mel Gibson will not be back for Chicken Run 2, which was just announced by Netflix.

The Wrap is reporting that the 64-year-old actor, who voiced Rocky in the stop-motion movie, will not be asked back to reprise the character.

However, there’s no word on whether original stars Julia Sawalha, Phil Daniels, Imelda Staunton or Timothy Spall will be return either.

Chicken Run 2 will pick up the story of the chickens who pulled off an escape from Tweedy’s farm in the original film where Ginger has finally found her dream – a peaceful island sanctuary for the whole flock, far from the dangers of the human world.

When she and Rocky hatch a little girl called Molly, Ginger’s happy ending seems complete. But back on the mainland the whole of chicken-kind faces a new and terrible threat. For Ginger and her team, even if it means putting their own hard-won freedom at risk — this time, they’re breaking in!

Earlier today, news broke that Mel had made anti-Semitic comments towards Winona Ryder.
