Is it possible for a Joe Dirt 2 in our near future? Well according to comedian David Spade, the original Joe Dirt, we may just see one soon.
In a recent Reddit AMA, several users asked the comedian if there would be a sequel in the near future. He responded saying that the movie is currently in development.
“We wrote a sequel, and we may wind up doing it on Crackle.com, because they want to be the first web address to do a sequel to a movie. Because Sony owns them, and it’s a Sony movie. We’re trying to find a way to make it for the budget, but we really want to do it. And keep it good.”
David Spade continued by saying that they are working out the details of the sequel, including budgets and a way to provide a movie that will not disappoint fans of the original.
“We’re putting it together now and seeing if we can keep it as funny and with the music we like for a lower budget. All the movies you hear about being made now keep running into budget problems, this and that, and it sounds boring, but it’s just a new world, where they can’t make those $15-30 million comedies anymore. It’s either $3 million or $200 million, there’s almost no in-between, so everyone’s adjusting to either a summer tentpole Avengers-type movie, or learning to get down and dirty and gritty and making a smaller movie. I just don’t want to burn the fans and want to make it good, so me and the other writer are combing through the sequel and trying to make it make sense and have good music and be funny within the parameters. So hopefully it will be soon, or it will be too pointless.”
David Spade also commented that if the movie did get released, he would like to have the original co-stars, Kid Rock and Christopher Walken return to reprise their roles.
