Summer is officially here, and in honor of its arrival, we have an announcement about one of the greatest summer movies ever!
Director David Wain (Role Models) may soon be making a prequel to his cult comedy classic Wet Hot American Summer!
Wain told Jeff Goldsmith at The Q&A Podcast, “The prequel would [take place] the same summer … So it would be 40 year olds playing 16 year olds. And yeah, we’re in the early stages of thinking about that.”
The film, made in 2001, starred then unknowns Paul Rudd, Bradley Cooper, Amy Poehler, Jeanene Garofalo, David Hyde Pierce, Michael Showwalter, and Ken Marino, to name a few.
This year marks the film’s 10th anniversary, and to celebrate Music Hall of Williamsburg has an event next month hosted by Wain and fellow Stella comedy troupe members Michael Showwalter and Michael Ian Black.
