Brendan O'Carroll has revealed the first details of the eagerly-awaited 'Mrs Brown's Boys' movie.
In an exclusive chat with Yahoo!, BAFTA-winning Mrs Brown creator O'Carroll told us that the film, which is due out in 2014, would stay true to the TV series and would be based in Dublin.

He said: "I didn't want to go down the line of ‘Mrs Brown goes to Marbella’ or ‘Mrs Brown goes to Cannes’. The usual idea behind a movie of a TV series is to take them out of the context.
"I want to take on the challenge of writing a movie within the context of the TV series and film and shoot it in Dublin and its surroundings. It'll be a nice meaty story with plenty of comedy."
The comedian and actor, who's also working on a third series of the show for BBC One, also revealed that he could be taking inspiration from an unusual Hollywood hit.
He told us: "'The Hangover' was the funniest thing I've seen in a long time - it made me laugh out loud so much. If I could make it 'The Hangover' starring Mrs Brown I would. Now there's a thought!"
The 'Mrs Brown's Boys' movie is due to start shooting next September for release the following year, while the TV series returns to BBC one at Christmas.
'Mrs Brown's Boys' series two is available to buy now on DVD.
