Ah brilliant. We loved Goon so much the first time round, the idea of Goon 2 has us grinning from ear to ear. Is there anyone cooler/nicer than Seann William Scott? We think not; we met him. Via Twitter, Jay Baruchel has revealed that work has already begun on the sequel to last year's indie hit. Last time Baruchel starred in the movie and co-wrote it with Evan Goldberg. This time he's teaming up with Jesse Chabot for the script while Michael Dowse will reprise his role as director. Goon starred Seann William Scott, Alison Pill, Live Schrieber and Eugene Levy. Will they return for a second time? We hope so.
This is what Jay said on Twitter: "Though I do feel the need to clarify something from the last article I posted, GOON 2 will be written by @jessechabot and myself. 1/2... Evan Goldberg will be involved as a producer and we will all be working our asses off to make as awesome a flick as possible... Please know this: GOON is pretty close to sacred for all of us involved and we would only be entertaining the idea of continuing the 1/2... 2/2 saga if we were all equally convinced that Doug, Laflamme, Stevesy, the Russians, Rolie, Ogilvy Belchy and Eva were only getting started... We will give them and you guys the epic, violent, heartfelt... awesomeness that is not just deserved but required. HIGH. LAND. ERS... And YES @MDowse is directing the motherf*cker! #gaypornhard'
