Jonah Hill has confirmed there will be a 'How to Train Your Dragon' sequel.

The actor - who provides the voice to bullying character Snotlout in the 3-D animated adventure - confirmed plans were in motion for a follow-up to the first movie, which grossed $448 million internationally upon its release earlier this year.

He said: "Yeah, we're going to make a sequel. I'm excited about that. I just talked to Jeffrey Katzenberg and he told me we were going to make a sequel. It' going to be fun. Those movies are fun."

The 26-year-old star - who is currently promoting his latest film 'Get Him to the Greek' with British funny man Russell Brand - also admits his long-term plan is to work behind the lens on movies.

He told MoviesOnline.ca: "I just love films. I love talking about movies. I love watching movies. I want to be a director. That's my ultimate goal and I like writing and producing movies.

"Honestly, I just want to look back on my career and be proud of every film that I do and not worry about what genre it is or how people perceive me or if I have fans. That's far less important to me than the quality of what you're doing."

Jonah has a number of movies coming up in the near future, including comedy animation 'Megamind' alongside Brad Pitt and Tina Fey and drama 'Moneyball' - also with Pitt and Oscar-winning star Philip Seymour Hoffman.
